  • Three is best than two! We need to give advice to local data managers
  • This slide try to show the French public authorities. Instead of the geography I learned in my Parisian primary school, there is a huge amount of public authorities, and each are independant from the others. In blue, Open Data initiatives.
  • We have to gain metadata leaders on our side and they have to learn Metadata regulation
  • Each PA is in charge of a part of the 10 000 puzzle (cf. Krakow’ conference) Beside usual fight beetwen Local and regional governments As for Adress, we look after road data process Coordination is not top down, but really bottom up The key point is regional level
  • Closer, cheaper, faster : French implementation between rupture and developments

    1. 1. Marc Leobet For French Point of Contact Closer, cheaper, faster : French implementation between rupture and developments
    2. 2. Three legs to run safer <ul><li>Closer : implementations cannot be satisfied only by EC technical guidelines </li></ul><ul><li>Cheaper : new economic model of IGN </li></ul><ul><li>Faster : minds are evolving faster than some expected </li></ul><ul><li>We enter in the era of implementation of rules. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Since last INSPIRE Conference <ul><li>Transposition is done </li></ul><ul><li>The national structure of coordination is renewed, supported by IGN, the French mapping agency </li></ul><ul><li>Regional coordination is strengthened </li></ul><ul><li>Data sharing joins PSI directive in Open Data movement </li></ul>
    4. 4. What are we?
    5. 5. Metadata : toward French guidelines <ul><li>Translation of guidelines, with examples from local authorities </li></ul><ul><li>Definitions : spatial datasets (to better report) : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A set of geographic data released on a dominant theme. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Managing INSPIRE and ISO rules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Leading data managers are confortable with ISO and reluctant to change to Metadata implementing rules </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tools will stay in ISO, so we decide to develop INSPIRE template </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. Metadata : toward French guidelines <ul><li>Recommandations for developpers </li></ul><ul><li>Recommandations for spatial data managers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To escape from traps of misunderstanding </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A regret : it would be better to work with other SM </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But time is lacking and we run in our lane </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Data sharing <ul><li>A major framework agreement between Government and IGN </li></ul><ul><li>Funding the entire production of reference elements underpinning most local productions </li></ul><ul><li>For public authorities, except commercial activities </li></ul><ul><li>Through the web : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>published in wms & wms-c </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Co-visualisation of INSPIRE datasets on French Geoportal </li></ul></ul>
    8. 8. Update of adress process <ul><li>Today : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A lot of flux, not well monitored, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quality of databases under question </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a very ineffective situation (for emergency and postal services) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A thematic working group with local and national public authorities, Postal Agency, IGN… </li></ul><ul><li>Tomorrow ? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Tri-level synchronisation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A national Adress dataset </li></ul></ul>
    9. 9. Open data surge <ul><li>More and more cities come to Open Data. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the time, it is based on spatial datasets, </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes through web services. </li></ul><ul><li>The French Government launches its Open Data policy </li></ul><ul><ul><li> website will open by the end of 2011 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It should be a consumer of French SDI </li></ul>
    10. 10. In conclusion <ul><li>Coordination is growing : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(First?) Working group for a better organisation of a reference data production </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Experience sharing between local and national </li></ul></ul><ul><li>An larger dissemination of reference data </li></ul><ul><li>An Open data surge using (or made possible by) SDI </li></ul><ul><li>INSPIRE directive gives a frame to structural changes </li></ul><ul><li>A new frontier is at hand! </li></ul>
