From Habitats towards INSPIRE inPocket• The HABITATS project focused on the adoptionof INSPIRE standards through a participatoryprocess to design and validate environmentalgeo-spatial data, metadata, and servicespecifications with European citizens andbusinesses.
Habitats Data and Metadata Modeling• Define data and metadata models for thefollowing INSPIRE data themes:– 16. Sea regions– 17. Bio-geographical regions– 18. Habitats and Biotopes– 19. Species distribution• The results should be in compliance withINSPIRE directive and possible INSPIRE datamodels.
HABITATS benefits from participationin INSPIRE TWG Habitats project conceptual data model wasprepared short period before INSPIRE TWGwas established All HABITATS activities related to INSPIRE datathemes after establishment of TWG wasreported in TWG Feedback from TWG decisions guaranteedcomplete harmonization of HABITATSconceptual data models with INSPIREcorresponding Annexes
Data usage use cases• Regional data are used regionally• Global data are used regionally• Regional data are used cross-regionally (here worksINSPIRE)• Regional data are used globally (here works INSPIRE)• Global data are used globally (here works INSPIRE)
Regional data used regionally• There is not direct requirement for INSPIREdata models– Local data models could be wider– Local data models reflect regional needs and alsoregional decision processes– If data are not shared outside of region (but inmany cases it is necessary), in principle globalstandards are not needed– Standards are needed in case of more datasuppliers, to guarantee data consistence
Global data used regionallyGlobal data are in some content something like de facto standardsIn some cases it is necessary to be possible transform data intosuch models, which is required by regional decision processesThe global model has to cover regional decision needs (GMES casefor example)Open problems: the transformation happens either on fly or as pretransformeddata snapshotLanguage problem in the case on fly
Regional data used cross regionallyIn the case of cross border regions data harmonizationfaces extreme challenges.In many cases, for example tourism, we need to dealsimultaneously with several INSPIRE related datathemes. This is much more complex task than singledata theme case.In some applications data model could be broader thancorresponding INSPIRE definition.Open problem – how to manage multi lingual problems
Regional data used globally• Probably most relevant case for INSPIRE data model• The idea is to combine several local data sets intosingle standardized data set• The regional data has to be transformed (in manycases simplified) into global data model• Relevant cases are tourism, transport, education,research, environment protection, risk management,strategic decision• Language problem
Global data used globally• Global data are either standard or de factostandard.• It is expected that in the case of public sector dataINSPIRE compliance will be guaranteed.• Concrete application areas may require specifictransformation. Transformation could be based onFeature Encoding or Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD)

Reference Laboratory• The HABITATS Reference Laboratory is a central hubwith the support of global data, but also supportingcross scenarios implementations, and the HABITATSpilot applications, as implementations of singleHABITATS pilot cases, which will also be used fortesting the sharing of local data and metadata.
RL advanced principles• RL include all basic Geoportal Functionality, but– Support work with Maps not only with services– Extending of INSPIRE services – usage of KML– Include already possibilities for Open Linked Data– Embeded functionality
IDEAS• INSPIRE is not commonly known• Heavy formats (GML)• For government …• INSPIRE data may be widely used• Portal is not everything• Need to have bridge (apps) making it accessible• Social apps may contribute INSPIRE !• Mobile technologies may help to disseminate
