We work with members, academia and commercial companies to develop the 'building blocks of European geospatial interoperability'. Our most recent project, successfully completed in February 2011 was ESDIN.
European Location Framework Project (E.L.F.)
The proposal was submitted to the European Commission for evaluation on 15 May 2012. The project consortium has 30 partners including 15 EuroGeographics' members . The project is expected it start in March 29013. It will have a major impact on the development of European and cross-border SDIs and in helping our members to implement INSPIRE services. Find a short public summary of the proposal.
We categorise our projects into two main types:
Development Projects, aiming at a proof of concept or the development of a process or a service. They may be co-funded e.g. by the European Commission) or self-funded. ESDIN , which is now completed is an example of this type.
Development projects are key building blocks of the European Loaction Framework.
Implementation and Maintenance Projects, aim to deliver a product or service and subsequently to improve them. They are generally self-funded. Within this category we have:
EuroGeoNames (EGN) provides a distributed multi-lingual geographical names data network for Europe.
It will ultimately be a multi-lingual Internet service linking official geographical names sources across Europe. Access will be provided equally for all official European languages including the officially recognized minority languages.
The State Boundaries of Europe vision and long term goal is to compile a multipurpose State Boundaries of Europe Dataset, as the “definitive” description of the national boundaries of European countries. A short term goal for the project is to build a state boundaries dataset that creates a consistent approach for handling state boundaries at master data level (large scale) and also at regional and global levels.
