The Nature-SDIplus Network started in October 2008 and finished in July 2011. It aims, through state-of-the-art methodologies and good practice examples, to enable and improve the harmonisation of national datasets for nature conservation, making them accessible and exploitable. Thus, it supports the implementation of the INSPIRE Directive in this field.

Project co-financed by the EU


A European Project on Land Use and Land Cover Databases harmonization  

The HLANDATA project aims to demonstrate the feasible European level harmonization of the Land Use and Land Cover datasets taking into account both the data categorization and the data models, for any of their possible uses and users, through the development of user-oriented value-added services.

Land Cover is referred to the physical, chemical, ecological or biological categorization of the earth surface. The Land Use is referred to the categorization of the territory based on its current and future planned socio-economic purpose. Land Use and Land Cover are amongst the most important geographic information themes today.
