European Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS): Principles Information should be managed as close as possible to its source; collected once, and shared with others for many purposes; readily available to public authorities readily accessible to end-users, primarily public authorities at all levels from local to European accessible to enable end-users, both public authorities and citizens, to make comparisons at the appropriate geographical scale fully available to the general public at the appropriate level of aggregation and subject to appropriate confidentiality constraints, and at national level in the relevant national language(s) Information sharing and processing should be supported through common, free open source software tools.
