SDI and INSPIRE
A full, future-proof range of products and services

In recent years, con terra has played a decisive role in setting up the INSPIRE infrastructure on European and national levels, with its professional implementational and operational concepts and  its mature software solutions.

With SDI & INSPIRE, con terra offers a full, future-proof range of products and services that minimises the cost required to implement INSPIRE – while maximising the quality of services. This not only fulfils the requirements of the INSPIRE directive and GDI-DE regulations, but it raises the provision of geodata, visualisation, analysis and processing onto a modern and forward-looking, service-based architecture. 
 

Grundlagen

Basics

In 2007, the European Commission passed Directive 2007/2/EC on the 'Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe', or INSPIRE for short. Its purpose is to create a uniform European spatial database that is accessible via geoservices. 

The member states of the Community are working intensively to gradually provide environmentally relevant, interoperable geodata and the associated metainformation by 2020. The aim is to simplify the cross-border use of geodata in Europe and to create a basis for political decisions.
