Open SDI/INSPIRE workshop @ INSPIRE Conference 2017

The Knowledge Centre organizes a 3-hour workshop on ‘The Map of Open SDI/INSPIRE” at the INSPIRE 2017 Conference in Kehl (Germany) and Strasbourg (France).  In this workshop, which will be held on Monday 4 September 2017,  a first prototype of the ‘Map of Open SDI in Europe’ will be presented, showing the results of a first exploration of the openness of NSDI/INSPIRE implementation in Europe.

The ‘Map of Open SDI in Europe’, a project of the Knowledge Centre Open Data of Delft University of Technology, is developed to provide SDI decision makers, practitioners and researchers with a more comprehensive understanding of the openness of spatial data infrastructures in Europe. The Map covers four key dimensions of Open SDIs: the readiness, the data availability and accessibility, the use of spatial data and the associated benefits. The map provides an overview of the actions and initiatives taken in different Member States to open their SDI to stakeholders outside the public sector. During the workshop, several brainstorm sessions will be organized on each of the key dimensions of Open SDIs. The aim of these brainstorm sessions is to develop guidelines on how to measure and assess each of the four dimensions and to explore good practices that could be added to the Map. The results of the workshops will be used to update and improve the Map of Open SDI in Europe, making it a highly relevant and practical tool that shows the status of Open SDIs in Europe and supports decision makers and practitioners in making their own SDI more open.
