- INSPIRE is starting to work and address the key barriers identified at the outset ofthis initiative that prevented the sharing and use of the spatial information needed tosupport environmental policies and policies affecting the environment.
- Most progress has been done in documenting data, and making such data discoverable and viewable through web services. There are however delays,particularly for Annex I and II data that should all have become available by the timeof the survey. Delays are also present for Annex III, both for completing themetadata and for making data available via download services.
- The area of greater concern is the delay by the Member States in putting in placemeasures necessary to remove obstacles to the sharing of data at the point of useamong public administrations. Only about half of the data producers indicated thatsuch policy measure had been put in place in their organisation, and this was felt byusers still finding data policy as a major barrier. Taking into consideration that suchmeasures should have been in place since 2009, this delay is clearly significant.
- Improving communication, and sharing of best practice, reducing as far as possiblecomplexity of technical specifications, and improving coordination are keysuggested changes.
- There was almost unanimous view across all participants in the public consultationthat the objectives of INSPIRE of making spatial data and services more easilyshared and used are still as pertinent as ever.
- INSPIRE is delivering benefits to public administrations through improved datamanagement processes and increased skills/competences in managing andpublishing geographic information and related services.
