Public Consultation is organized as a part of the evaluation of Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 March 2007 establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE). The Directive obliges EU Member States to share geospatial data to support EU’s environmental policies and policies or activities which may impact on the environment.
This consultation is open to any interested public or private organisation or individual. The following stakeholders may be particularly interested: bodies and individuals that are managing geospatial data, implementing the INSPIRE Directive or using geospatial data in their day-to-day operations, such as public authorities and administrations at national, regional and local level, environmental non-governmental organisations, professionals in environment protection or geospatial information systems, businesses, academics, interest organisations and private individuals.
