LINKVIT is based upon the results of several European initiatives in the field of Geographical Information and the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive.
At first, LINKVIT is based upon results of the Leonardo da Vinci project VESTA-GIS (www.vesta-gis.eu). VESTA-GIS developed a cooperative framework for sharing experiences about training and eLearning in GI, a catalogue of training modules (with standard metadata) and the possibility to group different modules to build up “training paths”, according to needs of trainees target groups. The modules have been developed by well recognized European Universities and companies.
The project is focused on harmonization and adaptation of training material to answer the needs and demands of the professionals of geo-information (GI) about the new EU legal framework defined principally by INSPIRE and by other Directives for regulation of GI and environment.
