HLANDATA

Participants on HLANDATA project

The HLANDATA European initiative, within the CIP-CIT PSP programme, has a budget of 3.4 million Euros, subsidised 50% by the European Union and 50% by the participating partners. In addition to Spain, fielding three partners (Department of Rural Development and the Environment, TRACASA and the National Geographical Institute), the following countries are taking part in the initiative: Czech Republic, Holland, Austria, Latvia, Lithuania and Slovakia. The work will last 36 months and up to now the diagnostics and development stages have been carried out.

This project, leaded by the Department of Agriculture and Tracasa, aims to harmonize the European landuse and landcover databases and the creation of query and exploitation advanced tools. Four different pilots pointed towards different users and purposes have launched the project. The second year has already finished and the validation phase is currently going on, which will allow users outside the consortium to work with different applications and assess their usefulness and adaptation.

BRISEIDE

Participants on BRISEIDE project

BRISEIDE (BRIdging SErvices,Information and Data for Europe) is a ICT Policy Support Programme project within EU's Competitiveness and Innovation FrameWork Programme’s framework. The project is based on the exprience of previously financed projects (such as EURADIN) and tries to create value added data by using users’ real and operative information and data. BRISEIDE’s objectives are: Preparation of time-aware extension of data models developed in the context of previous/ongoing EU INSPIRE related projects (e.g. in the context of GMES, eContentPlus) on one hand; and development of applications (e.g. Civil Protection) based on the integration of existing, user operational information and value added services for spatial and temporal data’s management, authoring, processing, analysis and interactive display.

BRISEIDE has been applied, tested and validated within a Civil Protection application context, using the INSPIRE relevant themes, via a chain of stakeholders, data providers, technology partners, and downstream users. The pilot operational phase has been lasting for the last 12 months and is been developed in a real data and situation context. The Government of Navarre and TRACASA are partners along with other 13 other partners from 5 countries of European Union. The Emergency Agency of Navarra is in charge of evaluating developed applications within the pilot project carried out by Navarra in order to improve the answer to emergencies.

PLAN4ALL

Participants on PLAN4ALL project

PLAN4ALL is a European project co-funded by the Community programme eContentplus. The main aim of the project is to harmonize spatial planning data and its related metadata according to the INSPIRE principles. The Plan4all consortium is composed of 24 partners from 15 European countries: universities, private corporations, government administrations from 15 European countries. NASUVINSA, which is a public society of the Department of Housing and Spatial Planning of the Government of Navarre, takes part in this Project.

The main project objectives are:

- Promote Plan4all and INSPIRE in countries, regions and municipalities.

- Design spatial planning metadata profile.

- Design data model for selected spatial data themes related to spatial planning.

- Design networking architecture for sharing data and services in spatial planning.

- Validate metadata profile, data models and networking architecture on local and regional level.

- Establish a European portal for spatial planning data.

- Deploy data and metadata on local and regional level.

EURADIN

Participants on EURADIN project

EURADIN (European Addresses Infrastructure) is a project led by Navarra that will promote the harmonization of addresses in Europe and the implementation, checking and validation of the model. This project has been selected within the eContentplus call on digital content for the Information Society that the European Commission carries out every year. The initiative responds to a need compiled in the INSPIRE European Directive, that founds the general rules to establish a Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) in Europe based on state, regional and local initiatives that are compatible and interoperable.

The aim of EURADIN was to “set up a good practice’s net that promotes the harmonization of address at a European level”. Project coordination led by the Department of Modenization and Electronic Administration (DGMAE) and Tracasa has favoured the collaboration between 30 different institutions coming from 16 European countries. The project finished in June 2012 when the First European Conference on Addresses named “Addressing the Future“ took place in Brussels and the creation of the European Addresses’ Forum, from which Navarra holds the presidency and secretaryship.

Nature-SDI Plus

Nature-SDI Plus targets nature conservation

The Nature-SDI Plus project is a network of best practices to create an infrastructure of spatial data on nature conservation. This project has been selected within the eContentplus call on digital content for the Information Society that the European Commission carries out every year.

The aim of the Nature-SDIplus Network is to obtain a set of harmonised data at a European level. It will also create a Geoportal, based on web services, for greater accessibility to data and to involve citizens in conserving biodiversity. The Nature-SDIplus Community will thereby be established, covering all topics of interest for Europe, targeting agreements between its members.

30 partners from 18 countries in the European Union are participating in Nature-SDIplus. We should highlight the role of the Geographical Information Systems International Group (GISIG) from Italy that acts as project leader, the Government of Navarra's General Environment and Water Board and the public company TRACASA, participating as technological suppliers and experts in implementing Spatial Data Infrastructure. SITNA, via the Department of Environment and Tracasa, is in charge of the interoperability of nature conservationdata sets.

CROSS-SIS

Work session for the CROSS-SIS project

The CROSS-SIS project, within the framework of the Interreg IIIC community initiative programme and within the Change on Borders (RFO), regional operations programme, falls within European initiatives aiming to promote cooperation between countries and regions. The aim of this project has been to promote the use of spatial data for cross border decision-making, promoting modernisation of regional administrations, the use of INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) and the development of the Information Society.

The project sets up two map services demonstrating information on the two topics that were chosen as pilot experiments: planning and statistics.

The planning pilot offers information on a regional and/or local level as well as links to the corresponding ordinance plans in PDF format.

In the case of the statistics pilot, this allows the user to choose symbols to apply to the map which has been seen as highly interesting to represent the chosen statistical data: population, density, number of homes, working and unemployed population.

The application period for the CROSS-SIS project finished in December 2006, extended to June 2007 due to its success and the magnificent cooperation work achieved between the different countries. In addition to the Government of Navarra and TRACASA, another six partners from four European regions participated in this project: North Rhine Westphalia (Germany), Gelderland and Overjissel (Holland) and Lower Austria (Austria).

GRISI

GRISI project members

The GRISIEuropean project (Geomatic Regional Information Society Initiative) developed within the framework of the INTERREG III C-SOUTH community initiative programme, focussed on demonstrating the added value represented by georeferencing services and resources for citizens with a view to using them on the Internet in the following areas: e-government, e-identity, e-economy and participation of new EU Member States.

Navarra is responsible for the improvement and progress in what is known as "e-government" meaning Administrations using new information and communication technologies (ICTs) that are transforming relations between institutions and citizens, companies and official agents.

This project, already completed, has allowed the Foral Community to develop two initiatives: the Spatial Data Infrastructure for Pamplona and the GEOPOP project, a pilot experiment to pinpoint, via the internet or PDA, the location of public buildings, services or prepare itineraries for urban district transport in Pamplona.

Navarra shared the initiative for this project with another three partners from Midi-Pyrénées (France) as leader, Abruzzo (Italy) and Latvia. After three years of the project, the overall outcome was positive, as it managed to unify information processing in the four regions as recommended by the INSPIRE European Directive, a geographic information spatial infrastructure that will permit, among other things, evaluation of the impact of European policies.
