Iceland implements ArcGIS to meet INSPIRE directive

Iceland: The National Land Survey of Iceland (NLSI) is implementing Esri’s ArcGIS to meet compliance with the European Union’s Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) Directive. This will ensure that the country’s public data is visible and accessible to institutions, companies, and individuals for improved governance.
By recent law, NLSI is the key player for implementing INSPIRE in Iceland. To help meet this directive, Esri’s distributor in Iceland, Samsyn ehf., provided the software and services to the national organisation. 
ArcGIS for INSPIRE allows NLSI to fulfill the INSPIRE requirements without having to change its processes for creating and maintaining data. ArcGIS for INSPIRE includes tools to transform data into INSPIRE-compliant databases, which can be published with INSPIRE-compliant web services.
The INSPIRE Directive addresses 34 spatial data themes necessary for environmental applications. These themes are organized into three annexes. ArcGIS for INSPIRE includes data models that comply with INSPIRE Annex I, which is the next milestone required for compliance with the INSPIRE Directive. ArcGIS for INSPIRE will be updated as necessary to include support for Annex II and III data models once they have been finalised.
