The Cadcorp INSPIRE Data Publisher Service for the UK
Helping UK local authorities meet their EU INSPIRE obligations by publishing data and metadata.
Accepted by the UK government as GIS Services supplied under G-Cloud 7.
Cadcorp can help UK local authorities meet their EU INSPIRE obligations by undertaking the following data management tasks as a managed service:
- uploading metadata to data.gov.uk
- publishing data with a view service
- publishing data with a download service
The service allows data from Cadcorp Desktop GIS software to be published directly without additional translation.
Metadata should be provided in XML Gemini 2 format while spatial data should be provided as a styled Cadcorp BDS file.
The customer should provide Cadcorp with a letter of introduction to data.gov.uk authorising Cadcorp to act as agent in their behalf
Pricing is based on the number of data sets involved and their frequency of updates.
An INSPIRE training course has been designed to help Local Authorities understand, and meet, their INSPIRE obligations using their existing Cadcorp products. It guides users from initial identification of datasets through to publication. It prepares them for self-publication of their data, or alternatively, the managed offering of the Cadcorp INSPIRE Data Publisher Service.
