Showcase application reveals power of the European Location Framework for first time

Pre-operational launch of European Location Framework is released 8 months ahead of schedule at INSPIRE 2014.
 
June 18, 2014 -- Spatial data users can experience the power of the European Location Framework for the first time thanks to a new showcase application launched today (18 June 2014) at the INSPIRE Conference 2014.
 
Delegates attending the event in Denmark were among the first to try out the pre-operational service, which has been released 8 months ahead of schedule. Accessed via www.locationframework.eu, it connects national data services from 5 countries and also includes pan-European geo-information provided by 45 National Mapping and Cadastral Authorities via EuroGeographics. 
 
Speaking on behalf of the European Location Framework Project Consortium, Antti Jakobsson, Technical Coordinator said: “We are thrilled to be releasing this showcase application 8 months early. There are many ways to connect to the platform, such as through Oskari or ArcGIS Online, and we hope both business users and application developers will try the service to experience the benefits for themselves.”
 
“The initial application contains national data services from the Czech Republic, Finland,  Norway,  Spain and Sweden as well as a GeoLocator georeferencing service and a GeoProduct Finder. This is just the start. Service functionality and data content - in terms of both geographic coverage and level of detail - will continue to be developed to ensure that the European Location Framework provides one reference geo-information source for Europe.”
 
The European Location Framework is a technical infrastructure which delivers authoritative, interoperable, cross-border geospatial reference data for analysing and understanding information connected to places and features. It will take INSPIRE to the next level by providing the practical means for delivering operational cross-border and pan-European services. 
 
The three-year project, which started in March 2013, is co-funded by the EC’s Competitiveness & Innovation framework Programme (CIP) Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP). The Consortium comprises mapping and cadastral authorities, application developers, SMEs, universities, EuroGeographics and the Open Geospatial Consortium.
