As part of the Interoperability Solutions for European Public Administrations (ISA) Programme, the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) is establishing the Reusable INSPIRE Reference Platform (ARE3NA) which will identify and develop common components for the successful implementation of the INSPIRE Directive in relation to European e-government. ARE3NA will support collaboration, identification of best practices, guidance and the sharing of components relate to various aspects of INSPIRE (e.g. metadata-related tools, spatial data themes (as described in Annexes I, II, III of the Directive), spatial data services and technologies, including for testing conformity) through the following activities:
Inventory of existing platforms and tools spanning multiple policy areas;
Support existing or initiate new open source projects to address identified gaps;
Produce extended multilingual documentation to help create an INSPIRE node based on existing Member States’ relevant initiatives;
Shared and collaborative platforms
Alongside technical developments within the ISA Programme's JoinUp platform throguh the ARE3NA Community, the INSPIRE Forum will allow related to content from the INSPIRE core community to contribute to the project.
