  • Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe   EU Directive passed in 2007 Aim: To Improve environmental policy making and delivery Framework Directive: a series of implementing decisions and regulations set out how the Directive should be delivered Transposed in to UK law in 2009 (amended in 2012)
  • INSPIRE is founded on 5 principles   Focus on sharing and reuse Promote keeping information close to source Acknowledge need to make it easy to find data and assess its fitness for purpose Essentially good information management practice
  • UNCLASSIFIED
  • What does INSPIRE require us to do...   34 themes each with a definition and specification setting out what data is in scope 3 Annex each with their own timelines   Applies to existing data No requirement to capture new data But any new or significantly restructured data must be made to comply
  • Deadlines   210+ Annex I & II datasets identified by Nov 2011 Over 90% are discoverable and have view services now   Working towards Annex I & II downloads Identifying key Annex III datasets and providers Finding solutions to complex themes Transformation deadlines will arrive quickly - first is December!
  • Remind people this covered in much more detail in Ian’s talk.
  • Remind people this covered in much more detail in Ian’s talk.
  • This is LR Index Polygons. An open dataset, being previewed on DGU.
  • UK Location Strategy was agreed in 2008 following a comprehensive review of the use of GI and GIS across government The strategy is owned by the UK Location Council on behalf of Gov. and the devolved administrations   The strategies objectives are complementary to INSPIRE and will deliver similar outcomes   The strategy is currently being review with a view to producing an updated refined delivery plan for 2013 and beyond
  • To conclude: Current Situation UK Location Infrastructure central service delivered Annex I & II data providers identified and engaged 210 INSPIRE annex I & II datasets identifies and registered View Services in place for majority of annex I & II datasets Approx. 700 other location datasets also published Significant progress on Business Interoperability Intellectual property rights OS INSPIRE WMS end user licence Open government licence Rights management (access and use control) User engagement to demonstrate benefits Engagement for INSPIRE annex III underway
  • The technical bit.. The UK location infrastructure is essentially a catalogue providing users with access to a broad range of location data. Includes support services provided by UKLP

  • Start planning for making data available UKL Data Sharing guidance will help with policy, copyright and business issues
  • Talk to your software vendors and get technical advice Talk to your IT department. In particular network issues (firewalls, etc.) need to be understood and addressed Talk to local government peers who have done this Make use of the Knowledge Hub ( https://knowledgehub.local.gov.uk/group/inspiredirectiveanduklocationprogramme ) UK Location helpdesk is a focus point for queries (INSPIRE@local.gov.uk)
  • Deadlines   210+ Annex I & II datasets identified by Nov 2011 Over 90% are discoverable and have view services now   Working towards Annex I & II downloads Identifying key Annex III datasets and providers Finding solutions to complex themes Transformation deadlines will arrive quickly - first is December!
  • INSPIRE is a system of systems It is an Infrastructure not an application (EG not a GIS) It Provides users with access to data from a wide range of sources Through a network of web based services Interoperability essential - technical conformance and business interoperability (licensing etc) Technical Requirements   Services discovery; view; download; Transform; Invoke; Spatial Data Services More on services later   Apply Data Specifications Transform data to comply with specifications Use URI’s to identify features Reference common registries EG. Hydrography Specification

    18. 18. The UK Location Strategy– We know what data we have and avoid duplicating it UK Location Strategy – Deliver better public services using location1. We know what data we have and avoid duplicating it2. We use common reference data so we know we are talking about the same places3. We share location-related information through a common infrastructure of standards technology and business relationships4. We have appropriate skills, both among geographic professionals and amongst other professional groups who use location info or support its use5. We have strong leadership and governance to drive through change including the implementation of this strategy and INSPIRE

    22. 22. Questions 22
    23. 23. THE UK LOCATION INFRASTRUCTURE 23
    24. 24. What we’re going to look at• What is the UK Location Information Infrastructure (UKLII)?• How does it work?• Metadata – Why? – Creating and Publishing• View Services – What they are? – How they are used?• Download Services – What they are?• Discovering data – the data consumer experience
    25. 25. What is the UK Location InformationInfrastructure?• The technical infrastructure that enables the publishing, discovery and use of UK Location data• Metadata driven• A “distributed” infrastructure• Standards-based services published and accessed over the internet
    26. 26. UK Location Information Infrastructure UK Location Data Publisher Data Provider
    27. 27. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)
    28. 28. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)
    29. 29. Metadata• UKLII requires that metadata is published for all datasets and services• All metadata is captured to a defined UK standard (GEMINI2) - see http://www.agi.org.uk/uk-gemini/• UK Location has also published guidance on implementing GEMINI2• UK Location provides an on-line tool for creating GEMINI2 metadata (the “Metadata Editor”) http://location.defra.gov.uk/resources/disco very-metadata-service/metadata-editor/[“Other metadata tools are available”]
    30. 30. Metadata resources• As well as the Metadata Editor, UKL also provides: – A user guide – Online tutorials (YouTube) – Metadata Editor available as a download
    31. 31. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)
    32. 32. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)
    33. 33. View ServicesWhat it is• A publically-accessible* network service• Provides an image of part of a spatial data set in response to user-defined requests• A Web Map Service (WMS)What it isn’t• A web mapping application (although they may use a View Service)• A GIS (although a GIS may use a View Service)• Does not provide access to the data itself (only an image)
    34. 34. What support does UKL provide?• Operational Guidance for setting up a WMS• An INSPIRE-conformant open-source WMS (GeoServer)• Guidance on setting up GeoServer
    35. 35. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)
    36. 36. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)
    37. 37. What is a Download Service?• Simplistically, INSPIRE is about implementing: – Standard data specifications, to enable interoperability – Standard network services, to allow access to that data• A View Service is a Network Service that provides an image of a dataset for a user-defined area •A Download Service is a Network Service that provides access to the underlying data; – data, rather than a picture of data
    38. 38. What is a Download Service?Or, in INSPIRE terms:…enabling copies of spatial data sets, or parts of such sets, to be downloaded and, where practicable, accessed directly [INSPIRE Directive]
    39. 39. Download Service Implementation Options• Guidance provides three implementation options• …two providing pre-defined datasets… 1. Atom feed delivering pre-defined datasets (Atom is an XML-based subscription pointing to pre- packaged data files – e.g. Shape files) 2. Web Feature Service (WFS) delivering pre-defined datasets• …and one providing direct access download… 3. WFS providing direct access to features
    40. 40. Download Service Implementation Options• Implementation of any option would provide conformance with the regulation• However, option 3 (direct access WFS) is preferred: – it supports full interoperability – should be implemented “where practicable” (the definition of which is up to the data provider)
    41. 41. Data Provider contributionsThree key components for providing access to data: – Structured information about datasets and services (metadata) – Services that allow datasets to be visualised (View Service) – Services that provide access to data content (Download Service)

    55. 55. 5 Steps to INSPIRE Success* * or Publishing Your Location Data 59
    56. 56. 1. Understand your data• You need to: • Understand what location data your organisation maintains • Identify data that is in-scope of INSPIRE • Look at how your data is published (if it is) • Consider issues such as licensing, IP, charging • Discuss issues emerging with data owners/custodians• Decisions: • Agree priorities for data publication particularly for INSPIRE • Agree publication approaches for datasets • Agree data sharing policies if you don’t have them (licensing etc) 60
    57. 57. INSPIRE Requirements - Data• Publish spatial datasets that are within scope of 34 legally defined themes• INSPIRE does not require us to collect any new data 61
    58. 58. 2. Options Analysis• You need to consider how you will: • Provide view, download services • Transform your data • Create metadata for your data and services and register it with data.gov.uk• Decisions • Phasing of delivery • How will I create my metadata? • How will I deliver my services?1.

    60. 60. 3. Make a business case• You need to convince your budget holders that they should invest in sharing location data.• Your business case should set out: • Why you need to act • What the benefits are for your organisation and others • The options you have considered • What the implications of not acting are • A recommendation• If taking a phased approach make this clear in the business case 64
    61. 61. 4. Develop and Implement Services• Define the business requirements and functional requirements • Ensure you are applying the relevant standards and guidance• Develop the solution• Load the data• Launch the services• Create metadata for the datasets and services• Register the metadata with data.gov.uk• If taking a phased approach ensure your solution is “future proof” 65
    62. 62. INSPIRE Requirements - Technical • Standards based infrastructure • Catalogues allow users to identify what information is available • Online services to consume data • EU data specifications to make data interoperable 66C. Ansorge, Umweltbundesamt, 2012, http://www.inspiration-westernbalkans.eu/5/9/1/4/7/6/Beyond_INSPIRE_-_GMES_and_SEIS.pdf.
    63. 63. 5. Maintain, Improve, BenefitMaintain• Keep your data and metadata up-to-dateImprove• Regularly check you are publishing all the required data• Work to publish more data• Respond to user feedback and priorities• Consider the requirements of INSPIRE when defining new data productsBenefit• Start consuming data as a service to reduce data processing costs and ensure you are using current data 67
