This page aims at building an inventory of the tools aiding the INSPIRE implementation. Several software tools have been developed within EU funded projects and are suitable for reuse, but are often not known to the broader community. If you are aware of free software implementing INSPIRE specifications, please contribute to this inventory.


Short description of the implementation. Link.
