1 European Commission EUROSTAT E4 INSPIRE DirectiveWhat’s up?EC INSPIRE TEAM Joint Research Centre - Directorate-General Environment – EUROSTATEuropean Commission EUROSTAT E4Now that the INSPIRE entered recently into force, Member States, their regions and the Commission are faced with important challenges related to its implementation.Implementing INSPIRE will require commitment and efforts from many public authorities and organisations which are dealing with data related to the environment.Faced with these challenges it may be worthwhile to look again at why we actually need an INSPIRE directive and how it fits in with recent environmental policy developments at Community level
2 Overview INSPIRE basics INSPIRE state of the art INSPIRE and STATISTICSImplementing INSPIREContact information
3 Where can I find… …comparable geographic information for distinct administrative areas? Challenge: identify, access and use geographic informationfragmentationgaps in availability, duplicationdata policy restrictions / pricing policieslack of data harmonisation: standards, qualitylack of infrastructurebetter coordination needed
4 Reference systems not harmonized ETRS89Reference system 2 :Clarke 80
5 Data inconsistency across borders Different road networks densityordifferent classifications?!
6 Data inconsistency across borders Administrative boundaries are not matching
7 Sharing of spatial data sets and services needs to be improved!
8 INSPIRE Principles maintain data at the most effective level; share between all levels;combine seamlessly spatial data from different sources;use conditions not restrict extensive use;discover, evaluate, use data.

16 Statistical unitsUnits for dissemination or use of statistical information: areas, lines, pointsSub-grouping of administrative unitsofficial administrative unitsgovernment management zonesblocks, census and statistical districtscivil security unitsenvironmental reporting and management unitspostal codes/ regions No thematic information
17 Human health and safety Geographical distribution of dominance of pathologies, information indicating the effect on health or well-being of humans linked directly or indirectly to the quality of the environment.Descriptiondistribution of diseases, health & safety qualitiescauses and elements affecting healthwellbeing of humanssafety issueshealth care services
18 Population distribution – demography Geographical distribution of people, including population characteristics and activity levels, aggregated by grid, region, administrative unit or other analytical unit.Broad sub-themes:population characteristicsTot. population, age, gender…population/ human activity levelsResource exploitation, agricultural production
