GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008 9 JRCs contribution to EO: some conclusions Space technology underpinning decision-making in key EU policies Building operational uses of Environment and Security information in the public policy-making domain Environment and Security research – benefits of advances at JRC Nurturing networks and partnerships Fostering the Global dimension GMES services – a potential supporting role for JRC to develop and validate pre-operational services Securing the supply side – an issue for GMES security
GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008 10 JRC is the Technical Coordinator of the INSPIRE Directive The INSPIRE Directive lays down general rules to establish an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe for the purposes of Community environmental policies and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment This infrastructure shall build upon infrastructures for spatial information established and operated by the Member States.This infrastructure shall build upon infrastructures for spatial information established and operated by the Member States. Which data/services? –Existing spatial data held by or on behalf of a public authority operating down to the lowest level of government when laws or regulations require their collection or dissemination.
GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008 11 INSPIRE Components 1. Metadata 2. Interoperability of spatial data sets and services 3. Network services (discovery, view, download, invoke) –Made available trough the European geo-portal 4. Data and Service sharing (policy) 5. Coordination and measures for Monitoring and Reporting
GEO European Project Workshop, 3-4 September 2008 12 JRC in GEO/GEOSS JRC have been active in the inter-governmental GEO and the development of GEOSS since its beginning –Attending Plenary Meetings and related EO Summits as member of the EC delegation –Participating in activities of the GEO European High Level Working Group –Contributing to the preparation and negotiation of the 10-year Implementation Plan (2005), to the Report On Progress and to the First 100 steps to GEOSS (2007),.. JRC is heavily committed to GEO through –its participation to GEOSS Committees as co-chair of the Architecture and Data Committee and member of the Initial Operating Capability Task Force (A.Annoni) as co-chair of the User Interface Committee (F.Pignatelli) as active member in Science and Technology Committee JRC participates in GEOSS tasks –Through institutional actions and activities INSPIRE, MONDE, TREES-3, SOLO, PROCAS, AGRI4CAST, SOIL, FOREST,..) –Through participation in FP7 European Projects AEGOS, EuroGEOSS, GIGAS, DEVCoast, GEOLAND, …
