Spatial Data Infrastructure-Education project to train spatial planners

Each Member State has to transpose the INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community) Directive into its national legislation and to develop the interoperable services allowing the management and sharing of spatial data. There will be also requirements on spatial planning to accept the implementation rules of INSPIRE Directive.

The project “SDI-EDU for regional and urban planning” (“SDI” as Spatial Data Infrastructure and “EDU” as Education) is going to support training of responsible people to set up and use some of these services according to the specific problems of the European regions on local and regional level. The SDI-EDU project will thus let the regions participate actively in the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive.

One of the main objectives of the project is to establish a geo-portal that will serve for vocational education of spatial planners. The spatial planners could find here information, educational material and documents which will provide them with the knowledge of the INSPIRE-related topics that will influence their daily work in a very close future. The educational content covers the basics and the most important topics regarding the INSPIRE Directive and also reflects the hot-topic specifics.
