Canada: Safe Software announced the completion of a prototype spatial data transformation solution that supports the requirements of the European Union’s Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE) Directive. In conjunction with Metria AO Cadastre of Sweden, the FME-based INSPIRE prototype will be unveiled at the INSPIRE Conference 2010 during June 22-25, in Krakow, Poland.
Now INSPIRE stakeholders will be able to meet their goal of providing good governance through sharing spatial information across Europe – making it easily and transparently accessible – and do so with readily-available technology. The prototype demonstrates an end-to-end, multiple source solution for INSPIRE utilising three different data sources containing Protected Sites data from the Swedish EPA.
This scalable, reproducible and portable solution demonstrates how the 27 Member States and over 200 Legally Mandated Organizations (LMOs) can handle the complexities of INSPIRE’s XML data exchange schema, without the need for custom software development or complicated data processing.
Don Murray, President of Safe Software, said, “The INSPIRE Directive requires solving complex spatial data transformation challenges. By combining Safe and Metria’s expertise, we have produced a prototype that clearly demonstrates how FME can ease the transition to INSPIRE’s mandated pan-European spatial data infrastructure.”
The prototype, which leverages FME’s industry-leading spatial data transformation capabilities, as well as web delivery technologies and open-source components, meets the needs of both data producers and data consumers.
