OGC announces participation in the Geospatially Enabled Ecosystem for Europe (GeoE3) project

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) recently announced its participation in the EU-funded Geospatially Enabled Ecosystem for Europe (GeoE3) project. 

The three-year project, part of the Connecting Europe Facility, has the following goals:

  • Better access and interoperability of Geospatial data and other data.
    • Usability of metadata information – e.g. dashboards.
    • Integration with other data (e.g. statistics, weather data).
    • Accessibility through the European Data Portal (via DCAT.AP).
  • Dynamic harmonization of geospatial data based on use cases and new APIs, including the OGC APIs.
    • Example Cloud Platform that will demonstrate use cases and will be used for national platform implementations through different APIs and tools.
  • Build an ecosystem based on national platforms.
    • Supported through eLearning videos and Innovation events.

The project began earlier this month with 12 partners from across Europe:

  • National Land Survey of Finland
  • Finnish Meteorological Institute
  • Statistics Finland
  • Spatineo, Finland
  • Norwegian Mapping Authority
  • Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency, The Netherlands
  • Centro Nacional De Información Geográfica, Spain
  • Estonian Land Board
  • Information Technology Center of the Ministry of the Environment, Estonia
  • Aventi Intelligent Communication, Norway
  • Direccion General Del Catastro, Spain
  • The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC)
