The European INSPIRE Geoportal awarded to Planetek Italia

Planetek Italia is starting the activities to set up the INSPIRE Geoportal, the central portal for environmental information in the European Union.

The company, prime contractor of the temporary consortium with the German company lat/lon, has been awarded the tender for the “Development of the technical components of the INSPIRE Geoportal at European Level”, of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) – Institute for Environment and Sustainability

The INSPIRE Geoportal will be the unique access point to global European environment geoinformation resources shared and made available by all member states within the framework of the “Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community” (INSPIRE) Directive. The compliance with the requirements and the guidelines included in the Directive 2007/2 EC establishing INSPIRE, is identified as being crucial for the success of the GMES service component. In particular the service provider community is called already to contribute with technical solutions meant to promote the use and sharing of the EO data and information.
