Do you know any geoportals which are fully (or almost) compatible with INSPIRE directive?

The French INSPIRE compliant geoportal (or geoportail) is online at http://www.geoportail.fr/

Ireland's EPA is responsible for many INSPIRE compliant datasets: http://gis.epa.ie/ - more to come in 2011. Ireland is implementing a GeoNetworks Solution where all councils have their own portals that feed into a national hub run by central government. http://inspire.compass.ie/

There is also the EU portal itself (written with MapFish / OpenLayers) at http://www.inspire-geoportal.eu/index.cfm/pageid/321

Also see this OS project http://code.google.com/p/inspire-foss/ and demo Dutch site http://inspire.kademo.nl/

  1. Discovery - Metadata
  2. View
  3. Download
  4. Transform
  5. Invoke

There an OSS project on INSPIRE implementation:

http://wiki.deegree.org/deegreeWiki/InspireNode code.google.com/p/inspire-foss/

Another one less advanced jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOS-2684

Look for geoportals (sdi) solutions and see how they are advanced in the INSPIRE implementation:

www.inspire.esri.com/ news.pb.com/article_display.cfm?article_id=4640 www.geoconcept.com/The-French-National-Geoportal-in.html?var_recherche=inspire

You should ask on inspire-forum.jrc.ec.europa.eu/

Others documentations: inspire.jrc.ec.europa.eu/events/conferences/inspire_2010/conf_poster.cfm

Check this implementation: www.epractice.eu/en/cases/sitridt







EDIT - EU INSPIRE Geoportal project attribution
