Filippi (Regione Emilia-Romagna, DG Ambiente) Contact : Marc Van Liedekerke European Commission DG Joint Research Centre Insitute for Environment and Sustainability Tel Fax NOTES 1.Poster Title Replace the mock-up text of the poster title (Environment and Sustainability) with the text of your own title. Keep the original font colour (100c 0m 19y 0k). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in Helvetica Rounded Bold Condensed, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana – plain or bold. Keep the original font body size (102 pt or, preferably,120 pt) and the title on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the title on more than one line only if unavoidable. 2.Poster Subtitle Replace the mock-up text of the poster subtitle (Place Your Poster Subtitle Here) with the text of your own subtitle. Keep the original font colour (black). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in MetaPlusBook-Roman, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana. Keep the original font body size (72 pt) and the subtitle on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the subtitle on more than one line only if unavoidable. If your poster does not have a main subtitle, delete the subtitle mock-up text or its text-box altogether. 3.Poster Main Text and Illustrations Replace the mock-up text of the poster with your own text. Keep it within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes provided. Keep the original font colour (black). Should you need a second colour within your text, use the same one of the poster title (100c 0m 19y 0k). Keep the flush-left justification. Set the main text in MetaPlusBook-Roman and the section headings in MetaPlusBold-Roman, if you own the typefaces. Otherwise, the main text in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana, and the section headings in their respective bold weights. Adjust the font body size and leading to the needs of your own text, depending on its overall length, for optimal display and legibility. Should you need a second level of text, set it in a smaller body size than that of your main text (and, in the case of photo captions, in italics, too). Place your illustrations (pictures, graphs, etc.) within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes. Adjust your text-flow as needed. 4.Contact Box Replace the mock-up contents of the contact box with your own data. Keep the contact box in place if possible. Place it elsewhere only if unavoidable for layout reasons, but in that case try, at least, to align it with some main element of the poster. 5.Additional Logos Should you need to display additional logos (e.g., of partner organizations or universities), reduce or enlarge them to a height within those of the JRC logo and the Directorate or Institute logo. Place any additional logos on the bottom of the poster, evenly spaced between the JRC and (if there is one) the Directorate or Institute logo, and vertically centred with them. During the last years the need for a coherent approach to soil protection has come on the political agenda in Europe; it was introduced as one of the thematic strategies within the Communitys 6th Environment Action Programme. In 2006 a proposal for a European Soil Framework Directive was made which includes the requirement for data collection of various types of soil related policy-relevant data by Member States, allowing policy-makers to assess the state of soils at European level. The creation of European soil datasets is not new. The European Soil Database (ESDB) covering EU-25 has been developed jointly with European partners and is the only harmonized coverage of digital soil information for Europe. It is the result of a complex and time-consuming undertaking, due to the vast heterogeneity of soil data in countries. In the light of updates to such a database and of collecting data in relation to the upcoming SFWD, simplification is needed through a suitable technical framework. One of the INSPIRE ideas is to conduct reporting and analysis of environmental information on the basis of a harmonized and hierarchical system of grids with a common point of origin and a standardized location and size of grid cells. This system constitutes a suitable framework for the building of a nested system of soil data and facilitates interoperability through a common coordinate reference system, a unique grid coding system, a set of detailed and standardized metadata and an exchangeable and open format. many soil property maps – vector or grid – can be derived Q: How to update each map? How to assemble new soil data maps ? A: Through the exchange of standardized grids; each grid represents a soil property ; each cell within a grid is filled with a value for that soil property unique cell cell-code Lombardy region comune or province
