Harmonising and sharing geospatial data

October 25th, 2013, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Esri has joined the European Location Framework (ELF) project to assist in harmonising and sharing geospatial data across Europe. As part of the project team, Esri has agreed to a grant offer with EuroGeographics to help its 59 members implement ELFand INSPIRE compliant services. Under the grant, Esri will be providing the ArcGIS platform, including ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS for INSPIRE software; support and training; and entrance to the Esri International User Conference. ELF is funded under the European Commission’s Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) and brings together 30 organisations, including 14 European National Mapping Authorities, to harmonise and share authoritative national mapping and cadastral data across Europe. The project will run for three years, having begun in March 2013, and builds upon existing national INSPIRE implementations. ArcGIS Online will serve as the cloud platform for the project, with ArcGIS for INSPIRE feeding national services into the network. The company will also support the development of various geoprocessing tools including generalisation and quality assurance.
