    • 1. EUROPEAN LOCATION FRAMEWORK (E.L.F.):BRINGING HARMONIZED GEOSPATIAL REFERENCE DATA TOGETHERAntti Jakobsson Programmes Manager, EuroGeographicsGeospatial World Forum 2012, 23-27 April, 2012
    • 2. What is EuroGeographics?• A not-for profit international association under Belgium law (AISBL)• 56 national mapping, land registry and cadastral agencies in 45 European Countries• Working to bring interoperable European geospatial reference data for the benefit of society• A distributed head-office of 10 people• Experience in making interoperable datasets for 20 years
    • 3. Why we need the European Location Framework Today After -Access to NSDI data is mostly national - Access possible for -Only global players provide easy access to geographic data National, European and -NSDI data is not used for the European Global use (E.L.F policy decision making platform) -use of INSPIRE data services is ? -common tools not co-ordinated - SME applications easy (Quality, Generalization, Edge- to connect matching, Change management, Visualization) - NSDI data is used for European policy decision making - INSPIRE services utilized - Common tools (in the cloud)
    • 4. The European LocationFramework is a technicalinfrastructure which deliversauthoritative, interoperable,cross-border geospatialreference data for analysingand understandinginformation connected toplaces and features Picture: Virginie LuppensEU Location Framework will provide the political/policy context to the E.L.F BASED ON BEST PRACTICES OF NATIONAL MAPPING AND CADASTRAL AGENCIES, INDUSTRY AND ACADEMIA
    • 5. • Policy drivers • eGovernment (Programme on interoperability solutions for European public administrations, ISA) • Digital Agenda • INSPIRE • GMES,SEIS • PSI • International (UNGGIM, GEOSS) Source: EuroGeographicsIt is for EUROPE – JOINING NATIONAL GEOINFORMATION TOGETHER
    • 6. IT IS LOCATION – WHERE THINGS ARE?Locating and geocoding through coordinates, geographical names and addresses(Geolocator)Unique Indetifying of the geographical objects, Linked Data
    • 7. FROM GLOBAL TOREGIONAL –CONSISTENTINFORMATION ATALL LEVELSManagement of Generalization, UIDs, Quality, Change and Visualization
