Geospatial data includes properties or conditions that are linked to a position on earth. Looking at the geospatial context – the ´where` of a phenomenon – will often uncover interesting correlations or revelations.

One important feature of data.europa.eu is to facilitate the discovery and access to open geospatial data sources. This is done by a process called ´geo-harvesting` of metadata from international, national, regional, or thematic geo-catalogues. Data.europa.eu harvests such metadata from other open data portals and geoportals in Europe providing a single point of access to over 1 million datasets.

This webinar will introduce the geospatial data that can be found on data.europa.eu and explain the geo-harvesting process. The speakers will closely examine one geospatial dataset on data.europa.eu and explore the journey of its metadata from the originating geo-catalogue to the portal.

Topics to be covered:

  • What kind of geospatial data is available via data.europa.eu?
  • Where does the geospatial data found on data.europa.eu come from?
  • What does metadata for geospatial data or services cover?
  • How does the geo-harvesting process work?
