  • 3. UK Location Strategy “ Good maps and location intelligence can help determine how quickly our ambulances turn up, where a policeman patrols, how we act in a national emergency. Knowing more about where we live can help us make the best decisions. But across the Country there is still too little sharing of the best practice and we are wasting time and money trying to find the information we need. The Location Strategy will ensure we make better use of information already held so we can use it faster and with less expense.“ Baroness Andrews, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Communities and Local Government, November 2008

  • 12. The Five Strategic Actions in the UK Location Strategy <ul><ul><li>To ensure that the UK exploits the full value of its information the Location Strategy requires a programme of strategic actions which ensure that: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>we know what data we have, and avoid duplicating it; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>we use common reference data so we know we are talking about the same places; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>we can share location-related information easily through a common infrastructure of standards, technology and business relationships; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>we have the appropriate skills, both among geographic professionals and among other professional groups who use location information or support its use; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>we have strong leadership and governance to drive through change including the implementation of this Strategy and the implementation of INSPIRE. (We term this the Location Council) </li></ul></ul>
  • 13. <ul><li>The INSPIRE Regulations will require the UK to: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide catalogues that allow users to identify what information is available (metadata) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ensure that information from different sources can be integrated (this will require information to adhere to specified common standards that INSPIRE will lay down) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Provide online services such as discovery (find out what data exists), view (to display, navigate, zoom in/out, pan, or overlay viewable spatial data sets), download (to obtain the data) and transform (to enable data interoperability) </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Have licensing arrangements that allow information to be shared, accessed and used in accordance with Freedom of Information legislation, the Environmental Information Regulations and the Public Sector Information Regulations </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Introduce monitoring mechanisms to demonstrate that the information is being made available </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Introduce co-ordination mechanisms to ensure effective operation of the infrastructure </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In essence, INSPIRE provides a legislative framework that promotes best practice </li></ul></ul>What does the INSPIRE Directive require us to set up?
