Provision of interoperable datasets to open GI to the EU communities

The GIS4EU project aim is to provide base cartography datasets for Europe on the following themes: administrative units, hydrography, transportation networks, elevation.
Therefore, the project intends to develop a common data model in order to enable access to consistent and homogenous reference data provided by cartographic authorities of different countries and levels (national, regional and local).

The project’s main objective is to increase communication and networking relationships among the project partners to ensure it addresses cross scale, cross language and cross border interoperability and accessibility issues.
This is to create a common knowledge base and make spatial information more accessible according to standards and requirements of the INSPIRE Directive (20007/2/EC).
