Research by the Commission on Geospatial Data Sharing

The Commission is currently conducting a study on how the sharing of geospatial data between public authorities and with the public could be improved across the EU.

The INSPIRE Directive plays an important role in facilitating such sharing. However, experience shows that there is room for improvement and that more can done.

Therefore we ask you, as the users and producers of geospatial data and information, to share with us your experiences and thoughts on the use of this ‘infrastructure’ by answering a questionnaire that you find online at

Please feel free to share this message with other stakeholders in your networks.

Thanks a lot for your support,
