EuroSpec & INSPIRE

EuroSpec is the NMCAs contribution to the INSPIRE implementation, focused on achieving interoperability of Reference Information, the backbone of an operational European Spatial Data Infrastructure.

A review of the existing or starting EuroGeographics projects is useful to understand the rationale of the current plans, and to highlight domains where new activities may need to be developed.
