Plan4all Book [for download]
EUROGI 2011-10-31

Plan4all has considered ending with a printed book summarising the excursus of the work and the achievements, mainly on the basis of the idea that the achieved results about spatial planning interoperability should be spread among the wider communities at EU and international level as well.

The Plan4all project delivers technical results that will be of interest of spatial planners,  GI experts and ICT professionals. The Plan4all Project fosters the exchange of ideas and experiences between those professional communities. To be fruitful, such dialogue requires a common language. This book, focussing on the approaches more than on the technicalities, is aimed  to contribute to this common language.

D3.2.2 Plan4all Metadata Profile
ToMas 2010-11-02

The aim of WP3 was to define the European metadata profile for spatial planning, which will cover the requirements given by national legislation and the INSPIRE Directive. The work includes:

  • to analyse the requirements on spatial planning metadata given by national legislation.
  • to define the European metadata profile (platform neutral) for spatial planning.

D5.2 Plan4all Networking Architecture
ToMas 2010-12-01

This document intends to formalise and describe the Plan4all networking and data sharing
architecture, and suggest its possible components.

D4.2 Conceptual Data Models For Selected Themes
ToMas 2010-12-01

The aim of the WP4 Plan4all data model definition was to define conceptual data models for the following spatial data themes defined in the INSPIRE Directive (INSPIRE, 2007):

  • Land cover
  • Land use
  • Utility and Governmental services
  • Production and industrial facilities
  • Agricultural and aquaculture facilities
  • Area management/restriction/regulation zones and reporting units
  • Natural risk zones

D2.1 Cluster of Leading Organisations & D2.2 Analysis of Innovative Challenges
ToMas 2010-10-25

The report “Cluster of leading regional and local administration in building SDI for spatial planning” starts with a description of the key-drivers of spatial planning in Europe for the 21st Century, describes on the basis of a European-wide survey the different planning systems in Europe and their relationship to SDI infrastructure, actual SDI projects in Europe, best practices of Planning and SDI, and indicates the concept of European Clusters.

D2.2 Analysis of Innovative Challenges - this deliverable presents the results of task 2.2 which is part of WP2 – the state of the art analysis – and has the objective to analyse latest developments and innovative challenges in SDI building for spatial planning in Europe. The objective of this delive­rable is to assist to pilot partners deploy their infrastructure in WP6.1, to prepare recommenda­tion for possible platforms.


D2.4 User Analysis Report & D2.3 Inspire Requirements Analysis
ToMas 2010-10-25

Partners involved in the task 2.4 have elaborated more detailed analysis of user requirements through case-studies. The case studies‟ analysis includes data relating to metadata, data models, networking technologies. This additional data can be used for spatial modelling and for design of common models as an intersection of existing solutions.

The present deliverable D2.3 “Analysis of INSPIRE requirements” provides an implementation-neutral and INSPIRE oriented set of recommendations for the modelling concepts for geographic data and metadata which will be further developed in WP3 and WP4.

INSPIRE, GMES and GEOSS Activities, Methods and Tools towards a Single Information Space in Europe for the Environment
Dr. Karel Charvat • Dr. Maris Alberts • Sarka Horakova 2010-09-22

The book describes how INSPIRE, GMES and GEOSS could be integrated into Single European Information Space. The book deals with the main task of INSPIRE, GMES and GEOSS and also with tools which could integrate all the three initiatives. The document gives an overview of single contributions in the book and how they explain the roles of single initiatives and their integration into the vision. The paper also explains the role of Earthlook technologies in the concept of integration of INSPIRE, GEOSS and GMESS into SISE.
