DATA HARMONISATION

GENERATION OF CROSS-BORDER PAN-EUROPEAN GEOSPATIAL DATASETS AND SERVICES

IRLOGI WEBINAR

The Irish Organisation for Geographical Information (IRLOGI) are hosting a webinar on the 

16 September 2020 starting at 13:00 Irish Standard Time.  Further details are available below.  You can register at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/6865776523281824269

The scope of this project is the production of cross-border, location-enabled services providing access to harmonised thematic open datasets in the fields of environment, emergency and disaster management. Heterogeneous data sources, selected with the direct involvement of public and private sectors stakeholders, will be harmonised in terms of data structure, level of details, semantics, and licence conditions. The harmonised datasets will be made available via standard-based APIs and published in the European Data Portal.

GO-PEG is a large-scale test bed for the automation of new transformation techniques (ETLs) that can meet current data harmonisation challenges. These techniques allow data producers and users to discover the heterogeneity of the data in the data sets they want to combine, automate the data harmonization process, and complete semantic and geometric harmonization.

Mr Alejandro Guinea de Salas will give a presentation at the IRLOGI webinar to be held on 16 September.

For participants, this webinar offers the following topics:

  • Understanding what the project is about and how hundreds of data sets can be effectively harmonised to common standards such as those set out in INSPIRE;
  • The chance to propose data sets for the cost-free data harmonisation programme;
  • The chance to get involved with the data usage feedback process established in the project.
