INSPIRE Directive Requirements for the INSPIRE Network Services are defined in the INSPIRE Directive Network Services Drafting Team are responsible for defining the INSPIRE Network Services Architecture and the Implementing Rules for the Network Services Network Services Drafting Team worked with the Metadata and Data Specification Drafting Team to develop the high-level architecture as defined in the INSPIRE Technical Architecture Overview
INSPIRE Technical Architecture Overview provides a high-level overview of the technical architecture of INSPIRE supports the discussion within and between the Commission, Drafting Teams, Thematic Working Groups, LMOs and SDICs

User Provider (e.g. MS, other) Geoportal, Applications INSPIRE Services non INSPIRE compatible Services Undefined interface Interface bridge Provider (e.g. MS, other) INSPIRE Services non INSPIRE compatible Services Interface bridge Mediator with non-INSPIRE Compatible Services INSPIRE Network Services can be used to wrap non-INSPIRE compatible services

eGovernment Integration Based on European Interoperability Framework (EIF) It provides standards and guidelines for the implementation national interoperability frameworks Useful context for Member States when implementing the INSPIRE Directive INSPIRE Network Services is well aligned with the ongoing work on the new European Interoperability Framework.

Conclusions INSPIRE Directive – defines the requirements INSPIRE Technical Architecture – defines the high-level architecture INSPIRE Network Services Architecture – defines the architecture for the INSPIRE Network Services Implementing Rules INSPIRE Network Services IRs – define how Member States implement each of the INSPIRE service types.
