EuroGEOSS Implementing the GEOSS Data Sharing Action Plan: Forestry
Purpose EuroGEOSS addresses multidisciplinary interoperability across forestry, drought, and biodiversity thematic areas. This short presentations demonstrates the process of committing data resources for Forestry to the GEOSS Data Sharing Implementation Plan
Forestry JRC –European Forest Data Centre (EFDAC),WMSEuropean Forest Data Centre (EFDAC) –European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS), WMSEuropean Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) –EuroGEOSS Forest catalog, CSWEuroGEOSS Forest catalog Spain, Ministerio de medio ambiente y medio rural y marino –Forest map, WMSForest map –RedNatura, WMSRedNatura
Web Services (OGC) CSW – Catalog Service for the Web –Service used to request metadata catalogs of the datasets and services WMS – Web Map Service –Service used to download geospatial information in a raster format – WMS are mainly view services WFS – Web Feature Service –Service delivering raw geospatial data. WFS are mainly data downloading services WPS - Web Processing Service –Service for standardizing how inputs and outputs (requests and responses) for processing services

Metadata The IOC Metadata Catalogue was populated with spatial and non-spatial metadata from EFDAC. Metadata adjustments have been made to ensure ISO 19115/19119 (ISO 19139) metadata compliancy (INSPIRE). The Metadata Catalogue functionalities were adjusted to include a sub- category “Forestry themes”. As a result IOC Catalogue provides search, discovery and preview facilities of spatial and non – spatial metadata.
Catalogue harvesting & testing - IOC The harvesting of external catalogues (Spanish IDEE Service catalogue, Dataset catalogue, EuroGeoss Droughts Catalogue) has been tested successfully. Adjustments on catalogue services allow CSW harvesting from CNIG and the IDEE Catalogue of Geographic Information Web Services.
Viewing Information A web-based Map Viewer was developed which enables the visualisation, interrogation (spatial & attribute) and overlay of spatial datasets over the internet using WMS/WFS/WCS protocols. The Map Viewer integrates data from other thematic areas: (Forestry, Biodiversity, Droughts) and at different spatial scales (Global, Regional, Local).
GEOSS Data-CORE = documented datasets, for full and open exchange (at no more than the cost of reproduction and distribution) AND unrestricted access (attribution is not a restriction) GEOSS Non-Commercial = full and open exchange BUT access and use restricted to non-commercial purposes GEOSS Other: all other categories including access fees greater than reproduction and distribution Verify GEOSS Data Category
Free of charge Charge > Reproduct. + Distrib. User registration Attribution Any Other Conditions ? Non commercial (ONLY) Add “User registration” To “Condition for Access and Use” Add “Attribution” To “Condition for Access and Use” Add “geossOther” To “Condition for Access and Use” Add “geossNonCommercial” to “Condition for Access and Use” Add “geossDataCore” To “Condition for Access and Use” Confirm GEOSS data CORE? Yes No Yes No Yes No Yes

Conclusions Europe is playing a key role in GEOSS We need to lead by example, and support the GEOSS Data Sharing Principles The process for doing so is not complex, and tools are available to help Above all WE need to make the commitment to make data sharing a reality.
