Joint EuroGeographics and EuroSDR Virtual Workshop on Geodata Discoverability


28th April 2022 @ 9:45 am - 5:00 pm CEST

Data discoverability has been identified decades ago as an important stake both by the Spatial data Infrastructure community and by the Web of data community. As more and more data are produced and published online in our societies, this stake is only growing.

This workshop aimed at sharing practical experiences, findings and roadmaps related to the discoverability and accessibility of data with a geographical characteristic, in particular but not limited to data covered by the INSPIRE directive. It was co-organised by EuroSDR Commission 3 and Eurogeographics KEN INSPIRE.

It welcomed presentations representative of the diversity of stakeholders who contribute to the field.

The meeting was organised as a virtual event.

The agenda of the workshop is available here.
