Workshop: Ping-Pong match OSGeo & INSPIRE

This workshop will be run in an open round style (like a mini-barcamp). The workshop aims at attracting people from all disciplines to start cross domain communication which currently appears to be the major blocker to get INSPIRE implemented.

Abstract

The Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo) is a non-profit international organization created in early 2006 to support and promote the collaborative development of geospatial open source software (GFOSS). OSGeo provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration. The foundation's projects are all freely available and usable under an OSI-certified open source license.

In the first 45min of the workshop Open Source software and data providers will give lighnting-talk style presentations of 3 minutes and 3 slides stating:

  • Where do I come from, what is my role
  • What I want or have to do
  • What are the blockers preventing me from getting it done

Each presentation focuses on the relevant INSPIRE capabilities of the software or the INSPIRE needs for the data provision and the potential issues and blockers resulting from the current version of the directive.

The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to a round table dialog between all participants.


The following topics will guide through the dialog:

  1. Maturity of the standards
  2. Maturity of the software
  3. Maturity andf correctness of the data
  4. Implementability of the INSPIRE directive
  5. Degrees of freedom in the implementation
  6. Complexity of INSPIRE technical guidance and OGC standards
  7. INSPIRE implementing rules, international and national standards
  8. Communication channels between OSGeo and INSPIRE
  9. How to contribute to INSPIRE Maintenance Presentation by Vanda Nunes de Lima

Practical follow-ups

  1. Setting up Wiki pages (multilingual) to make INSPIRE documentation more readable
  2. How to test and validate INSPIRE compliance
  3. How to change/simplify INSPIRE technical guidance in practice
  4. How to contribute to INSPIRE maintenance
  5. Automation of INSPIRE adoption through support in the various software packages
  6. How an implicit support for INSPIRE in any software will give a boost to the adoption of the directive even outside EU
  7. Automation of INSPIRE adoption through support in the various software packages

Notes on Workshop Description and Goals

The session will involve short presentation (lightning talks) with a follow-up dialog, potentially in sub groups. Participants should bring a computer, tablet or smartphone to the workshop to be able to participate in Wiis, mailing lists, web sites, Twittter, and so on.


Notes on Intended Audience and any Required Skills or Interests

  • Data providers who have to implement INSPIRE
  • Open Source Software developers
  • Businesses providing support for Open Source software
  • Academia
  • INSPIRE Representatives (Who is that exactly? If nobody shows up we will finally know that this role has not been implemented)

Invitation Mail

Dear ...,
OSGeo is organizing a 90 minute round table dialog at the INSPIRE
conference in Florence [1]. During the first 45min of the workshop Open
Source software providers and data producers / publishers will give  3
minute lightning-talk style presentations with 3 slides stating:
* Where do I come from, what is my role
* What I want or have to do
* What are the blockers preventing me from getting it done

Each presentation focuses on the relevant INSPIRE capabilities of the
software or the INSPIRE needs for the data provision and the potential
issues and blockers resulting from the current version of the directive.

The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to a round table
dialog between all participants.

We are very interested in hearing what you have to contribute and
guarantee that you will take away a lot of new ideas and hear a lot of
valuable experience from others.

Please let me know if you will participate, either actively with a short
presentation or just coming to the event. Slides are optional, just talk
a few minutes. Please also feel free to forward this invitation to your
colleagues.

Thank you for your interest,
...
