ready Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe

Abbreviation: INSPIRE

General Information
The INSPIRE Directive aims to create a European Union spatial data infrastructure for the purposes of EU environmental policies and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment. This European Spatial Data Infrastructure will enable the sharing of environmental spatial information among public sector organisations, facilitate public access to spatial information across Europe and assist in policy-making across boundaries.

Implementing Databases (2)
DEIMS-SDR (Dynamic Ecological Information Management System - Site and dataset registry) is an information management system that allows you to discover long-term ecosystem research sites around the globe, along with the data gathered at those sites and the people and networks associated with them. DEIMS-SDR describes a wide range of sites, providing a wealth of information, including each site’s location, ecosystems, facilities, parameters measured and research themes. It is also possible to access a growing number of datasets and data products associated with the sites. All sites and dataset records can be referenced using unique identifiers that are generated by DEIMS-SDR. It is possible to search for sites via keyword, predefined filters or a map search. The aim of DEIMS-SDR is to be the globally most comprehensive catalogue of environmental research and monitoring facilities.

BonaRes Data Portal
The BonaRes Data Portal stores soil and agricultural research data from BonaRes collaborative projects, including long-term field experiments in Germany which contribute significantly to the analysis of long term soil changes. In addition, soil monitoring and research data from the public sector may also be included. The Data Portal enables advanced text and map search via a number of criteria. AgroVoc is used to describe the data, and BonaRes metadata is captured using a schema in line with both the INSPIRE Directive (2007/2/EC) and DataCite 4.0.
