On 1 March 2011, the spatial technology company “GGP Systems” announced that users of the latest release of its desktop Geographical Information System (GIS) will be amongst the first in the UK to comply with the Directive 2007/2/EC establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE). This directive is part of a suite of European directives with the aim of standardising and ensuring access to public data related to the environment across Europe.
The latest release of GGP GIS will allow users to submit information about their spatial data holdings to a catalogue accessible to the public. The data catalogue, GeoNetwork Opensource, harnesses the power of the Internet to enable access to geo-referenced databases, cartographic products and related metadata from a variety of sources.
