Towards the Harmonisation of Spatial Information in Europe

Humboldt contributes to the implementation of a European Spatial Data Infrastructure (ESDI) that integrates the diversity of spatial data available for a multitude of European organisations. It is the aim to manage and advance important parts of the implementation process of this ESDI.

The main goal of the Humboldt project is to enable organisations to document, publish and harmonise their spatial information. The software tools and processes created will demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe as planned by the INSPIRE initiative (INSPIRE), meeting the goals of Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES).

The technical goal of Humboldt is to support Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) enablement by providing the functionalities for covering the data hamonisation process as a whole. The Humboldt Tools and Services are built on current state of the art and standards, designed to provide solutions to all types of users, data custodians as well as private end-users. Humboldt enables the use of single functionalities as part of your own infrastructure.
