Plan4all Book [for download]
EUROGI 2011-10-31

Plan4all has considered ending with a printed book summarising the excursus of the work and the achievements, mainly on the basis of the idea that the achieved results about spatial planning interoperability should be spread among the wider communities at EU and international level as well.

The Plan4all project delivers technical results that will be of interest of spatial planners,  GI experts and ICT professionals. The Plan4all Project fosters the exchange of ideas and experiences between those professional communities. To be fruitful, such dialogue requires a common language. This book, focussing on the approaches more than on the technicalities, is aimed  to contribute to this common language.

Spatially Enabling e-Government Through Geo-Services
Mauro Salvemini (EUROGI) 2011-04-18

The Plan4all project was presented at the Hunter College Geography Department, NYC by Mauro Salvemini (EUROGI).

During the colloquium, Mauro discussed how e-government and geographic information can be integrated to provide the most efficient spatial data infrastructure services to citizens and the general public. He focused on implementations of regional, national, and European Union-level initiatives within the framework of INSPIRE and presented a number of specific projects co-funded by EU including the Plan4all project.

Presentations from the Spatial Planning in Europe in terms of INSPIRE seminar
ISOCARP 2011-04-06

Due to the lack of availalaibility, quality, organisation and sharing of spatial information experienced across various levels of public authorities in Europe, the European Community decided in 2007 to establish an European infrastructure for spatial information. This infrastructure called „INSPIRE - Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community“ is under contruction and has to be operational in 2014.

The Seminar organised by ISOCARP within the Plan4all Project discussed first the question of INSPIRE and spatial planning, related to the Plan4all project, and focussed in a second part on public and private actors active in the field of spatial planning having to deal with INSPIRE in a near future: Environment, Spatial Planning, Real Estate Industry.

First test of data harmonisation in Zemgale Planning Region
Otakar Cerba, Jan Jezek, Peteris Bruns, Premysl Vohnout, Inga Berzina 2010-12-12

In Zemgale planning region there are currently deployed all spatial plans of region with related metadata on Geoportal. Before the full deployment a first test of data harmonisation was done. The objective of this test there was to generate from spatial plans data according the nomenclature of specification CORINE Land Cover (CLC). The experiment covered only a part of region, but future deployment will use only automatic process od data harmonisation based on a pre-definition of harmonisation rules. The testing process covers not only reclassification of attributes (including merging), but also changes in topology and geometry (e.g. merging or grouping of regions). Till now it was not agreed full transformation scheme between ZPR spatial planning data and CLC nomenclature. It requires further analysis.

D4.2 Conceptual Data Models For Selected Themes
ToMas 2010-12-01

The aim of the WP4 Plan4all data model definition was to define conceptual data models for the following spatial data themes defined in the INSPIRE Directive (INSPIRE, 2007):

  • Land cover
  • Land use
  • Utility and Governmental services
  • Production and industrial facilities
  • Agricultural and aquaculture facilities
  • Area management/restriction/regulation zones and reporting units
  • Natural risk zones

D3.2.2 Plan4all Metadata Profile
ToMas 2010-11-02

The aim of WP3 was to define the European metadata profile for spatial planning, which will cover the requirements given by national legislation and the INSPIRE Directive. The work includes:

  • to analyse the requirements on spatial planning metadata given by national legislation.
  • to define the European metadata profile (platform neutral) for spatial planning.
