This presentation outlines INSPIRE and what Local Government are required to do to comply together with the timeline for implementation.


  • 1. INSPIRE A Practical Guide By Mark Percival AGI


  • In frastructure forSp atialI nfo r mation in theE uropean Community
  • European legislative instrument
  • April 2007
  • Part of UK law
  • Fully implemented by 2019

Background Background 3.

  • Framework of rules and standards governing the creation, maintenance and distribution of spatial data.

What is it?

  • Data interoperability and data sharing are prime objectives.

Why? 4. 1: Rail Network - Network Rail 2: Rivers/Canals British Waterways 3: Motorway/Trunk Highways Agency 4: Other Road Local Authority 5: Airports/Airways - BAA 6: Other networks Google,Infoterra & Bluesky 2009 5.

  • Environmental issues
  • Uses established best practice
  • No new data collection
  • IPR
  • Data supply
  • Make data visible

What is (and is not) covered? 6.

  • 34 themes
  • 3 Annexes
  • Annex I
    • Coordinate referencing systems
    • Geographical grid systems
    • Geographical names
    • Administrative units
    • Addresses
    • Cadastral parcels
    • Transport networks
    • Hydrography
    • Protected sites

What types of spatial information will be made available? 7.

  • Public bodies
  • Private Sector Data Suppliers
  • Software and System suppliers

Who does it affect? 8. Timeline NOTE: All dates are subject to change! 9. What to do!

  • Familiarization
  • Scale
  • Strategy
  • Dont forget:
    • The more you know
    • The more you plan
    • The more likely you are to succeed

11. Thank You Good Luck Any Questions? 12. Annex 1 (2011)

    • Coordinate reference systems(both national and international, e.g. latitude and longitude, including height)
    • Geographical grid systems(harmonised, multi-resolution)
    • Geographical names(e.g. areas, regions, localities, cities, suburbs, towns and settlements, and geographical or topographical features)
    • Administrative units(areas for local, regional and national boundaries and administrative areas)
    • Addresses(including road name, house number, postcode)
    • Cadastral parcels(i.e. registered land properties)
    • Transport networks(road, rail, air and water networks and related infrastructure and the links between these networks)
    • Hydrography(marine areas, river basins and sub-basins, rivers, coastline. lakes etc)
    • Protected sites(areas designated by international, European Community, and national legislation aimed at achieving conservation objectives, e.g. national monuments, Special Areas of Conservation etc)

13. Annex 2

    • Elevation(digital elevation models for land, ice and ocean surfaces, bathymetry and shoreline)
    • Land cover(physical and biological surfaces, including artificial surfaces, agricultural areas, forests, (semi-) natural areas, wetlands, water bodies)
    • Orthoimagery(geo-referenced image data of the earths surface from satellites and airborne sensors)
    • Geology(characterised according to composition and structure, including bedrock, aquifers and geomorphology)

14. Annex 3

  • Statistical units(geographic units for dissemination or use of statistical information, e.g. Enumeration Districts used by the ONS)
  • Buildings(and their geographic location)
  • Soil(soils and subsoils characterised according to depth, texture, structure and content of particles and organic matter, stoniness, erosion, where appropriate average slope and water storage capacity)
  • Land use(current and future zoned use e.g. residential, industrial, etc)
  • Human health and safety(distribution of pathologies (e.g. cancers, respiratory disease), information indicating the effect on health (e.g. epidemics) or well being of people (e.g. fatigue, stress) linked directly (e.g. air pollution, noise) or indirectly (e.g. genetically modified organisms) to the quality of the environment
  • Utility and government services(sewerage, waste management, energy supply, water supply, administrative and social government services (e.g. public administrations, civil protection sites, schools, hospitals etc)
  • Environmental monitoring facilities(location and operation of facilities monitoring such things as emissions, ecosystems (biodiversity, ecological conditions of vegetation etc)
  • Production and industrial facilities(factories, installations covered by pollution prevention and control legislation, water abstraction facilities, mining, storage sites)
  • Agriculture and aquaculture facilities(farming equipment and production facilities, including irrigation systems, greenhouses, and stables)
  • Population distribution demography(geographical distribution of people, including population characteristics and activity levels)
  • Area management/restriction/regulation zones and reporting units(areas managed, regulated or used for reporting at international, European, national, regional and local levels (e.g. areas for dumping of waste, prospecting and mining permit areas, river basin districts, coastal zone management areas)
  • Natural risk zones(vulnerable areas such as flooding and landslide areas, areas of subsidence, forest fires etc)
  • Atmospheric conditions(physical conditions in the atmosphere based on measurement or on models)
  • Meteorological geographical features(weather conditions and their measurements (e.g. precipitation, temperature, evapotranspiration, wind speed and direction))
  • Oceanographic geographical features(physical conditions of oceans, e.g. currents, salinity, wave heights)
  • Sea regions(physical conditions of seas and saline water bodies divided up into regions and sub-regions with common characteristics)
  • Bio-geographical regions(areas of relatively homogenous ecological conditions and common characteristics)
  • Habitats and biotopes(areas characterised by specific ecological conditions, processes, structures and life support functions.
  • Species distribution(areas of occurrence of animal and plant species)
  • Energy resources(e.g. hydrocarbons, hydropower, bio-energy, solar, wind etc, including where relevant depth/height information on the extent of the resources)
  • Mineral resources(including metal ores, industrial materials etc including where relevant depth/height information on the extent of the resource)
