The usage of the INSPIRE geoportal is currently very limited – even if taking into account that we are still in a “middle of the road” situation where the possibility to download the actual data is still very limited, and harmonised data are not yet available. Linked to this, currently no effort has been made to communicate about or promote the INSPIRE geoportal, with as result that its existence is relatively unknown outside of the immediately concerned community of national service providers.
Other factors that potentially have a negative impact on the usage are:
  • missing access to existing pan-European datasets (with the geoportal being restricted to access Member States’ INSPIRE data)
  • the low quality of the metadata and data content
  • strong competition from related services such as Google earth as well as from certain national Geoportals
  • restrictions to access/view/use the data published in the geoportal
  • geoportal usability

Proposed change or action:

Before integrating the procured geoportal version (“Planetek geoportal”) with the current geoportal pilot (“JRC geoportal”), the long term vision and roadmap should be discussed and agreed with the MS.

Organisational set-up:

Organise a workshop to discuss further process


Roadmap for further developments

Possible funding:

JRC institutional / competitive budget
