INSPIRE

Epsilon Italia supports public and private organisations in the overall INSPIRE harmonisation process: from transformation and validation of heterogeneous source data and metadata to the publication of Network Services for INSPIRE datasets

We provide specialised vocational training and technical assistance for the adaptation of the existing SDIs to the requirements necessary to claim conformance to the INSPIRE Directive.

We’ve been supporting the EEA (European Environment Agency) and  MITA (Malta Information Technology Agency)

Projects

Open geo-data for innovative services and user applications towards Smart Cities”, cofunded by DG CONNECT of the European Commission within the ICT-PSP (Policy Support Programme), coordinated by GISIG. The project contributes to the Smart City implementation aiming to establish a cross-platform, re-usable and open hub able to publish open geographic information and to provide specialized services based on open standards. The project objectives will be demonstrated through the development of 11 operative and re-usable pilot cases in the frame of two scenarios: Green-Energy scenario, to facilitate diffusion and management of renewable energy within cities, and Underground scenario, to support integrated management of underground utility infrastructures. Epsilon Italia is responsible for the data modelling to be applied in the two scenarios, for the transformation and validation of datasets and metadata and for the dissemination of the whole project results toward the private sector and SMEs in particular.

Leveraging INspire Knowledge into Vocational Innovative Training”, cofunded under the LLP (Life Learning Programme) Leonardo da Vinci of the European Commission and coordinated by GISIG. The project contributes to rationalize and organize vocational training about GI & INSPIRE in public and private sector, also as regards an easy access to (standardized and validated at EU level) training, enabling a better skill and so support the practical implementation of the Directive. Epsilon Italia is responsible for the adaption of some training modules accoriding to the relevant national Italian requirements.

“LIFE+IMAGINE” is a project co-funded by the LIFE+ Programme Environmental Policy and Governance in the framework of the objective “strategic approaches”, coordinated by GISIG. The project deals with the integrated management of coastal zone and the implementation of the related environmental policies, providing information to support the coastal planning and decision making, with particular reference to two application scenarios: Landslides in coastal zones and Soil consumption in coastal zones. LIFE+IMAGINE implements an infrastructure based on web services for environmental analysis, integrating in its own architecture specifications and results from INSPIRE,SEIS and GMES/Copernicus. Epsilon Italia is responsible for the transformation and validation of datasets and metadata.

eEnvironmental services for advanced applications within INSPIRE”, cofunded by DG CONNECT of the European Commission within the ICT-PSP (Policy Support Programme), coordinated by GISIG. The aim of the project is to provide a service infrastructure for the interoperability of environmental data in support to the several European environmental policies. Epsilon Italia is responsible for the transformation and validation of datasets and metadata, for the development of a validation service and for the dissemination and exploitation of the whole project results toward the private sector.

A European Community of SMEs built on Environmental Digital Content and Languages”, an FP7 Support Action started in May 2012, funded by DG INFSO of EC, run by a consortium of 15 partners from 12 EU Member States and coordinated by Epsilon Italia. The main project aim is to support geo-ICT European SMEs to capitalize the INSPIRE benefits and this will be achieved through several concrete actions, the most important being: 1) an assessment of the market potential for geo-ICT SMEs in relation to INSPIRE, 2) a training framework designed to train environmental data analysis professionals, expert in the maintenance and exploitation of environmental data commons, 3) a Best Practice catalogue in the field of the management of environmental digital content across Europe, 4) a series of dissemination events and exploitation tools.

Mediterranean Fuel Maps Geodatabase for Wildland & Forest Fire Safety”, co-funded by the LIFE+ 2010 Programme of the European Commission and coordinated by Epsilon International SA (GR). Within this project Epsilon Italia is responsible for the Fuel Types modeling compliant with the INSPIRE Data Specifications on Land Cover theme.

a Best Practice Network co-funded by the econtentplus Programme of the EC, with 30 partners from 17 Member States, dealing with the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive, focusing on the harmonisation of spatial datasets and metadata, on the interoperability of geo-webservices and on the validation of the SDI components against the ISO standards and the INSPIRE requirements.

Implementation of the Maltese component of the SEIS (Shared Environmental Information System) for the themes Air, Water, Soil, Noise, Radiation. In this project, awarded by MEPA (Malta Environment & Planning Authority) to Epsilon International SA, Epsilon Italia is responsible for the design of a SQL Server geodatabase enabling the datasets compliance against the relevant INSPIRE Data Specifications.
