EuroGeographics’ activities focus on underpinning the European Spatial Data Infrastructure with the definitive reference data collected, maintained and provided by our members.
This infrastructure will provide the location framework for Europe as comprehensive resource for government, businesses and citizens. Find more about the European Location Framework (E.L.F) from the white paper.
Our wide circle of stakeholders benefit from our products, services, best practice and engagement activities which come together in our spatial data infrastructure projects.
Engagement with European decision-makers, enables our positive contribution to important initiatives, policies and projects. We also act as our members’ eyes and ears in the EC and Parliament to keep them fully informed about relevant developments;
The exchange of best practice helps our members to understand and implement policies, procedures and technologies so that they can meet the needs of their many users;
Harmonising national spatial datasets into a portfolio of integrated pan-European products and related services, enables us to provide the location framework for EC spatial analysis and policy developments; and
An ongoing programme of spatial data infrastructure projects, undertaken with academic and commercial partners, enables our members to contribute to the creation of standard data specifications and policies. This ensures their databases remain of high quality, compatible and can interact with one another to deliver data which provides practical and tangible benefits for European society.
