IRLOGI Webinar on the GENERATION OF CROSS-BORDER PAN-EUROPEAN GEOSPATIAL DATASETS AND SERVICES by Mr Alejandro Guinea de Salas.
GO-PEG (Generation of cross-border Pan-European Geospatial datasets and Services) is a CEF (Connecting Europe Facility) project that aims to bring high-value, harmonised spatial data sets to the EDP (European Data Portal).
The scope of this project is the production of cross-border, location-enabled services providing access to harmonised thematic open datasets in the fields of environment, emergency and disaster management. Heterogeneous data sources, selected with the direct involvement of public and private sectors stakeholders, will be harmonised in terms of data structure, level of details, semantics, and licence conditions. The harmonised datasets will be made available via standard-based APIs and published in the European Data Portal.
GO-PEG is a large-scale test bed for the automation of new transformation techniques (ETLs) that can meet current data harmonisation challenges. These techniques allow data producers and users to discover the heterogeneity of the data in the data sets they want to combine, automate the data harmonization process, and complete semantic and geometric harmonization.
For participants, this webinar offers the following topics:
- Understanding what the project is about and how hundreds of data sets can be effectively harmonised to common standards such as those set out in INSPIRE;
- The chance to propose data sets for the cost-free data harmonisation programme;
- The chance to get involved with the data usage feedback process established in the project.
