Esri Provides Software and Expertise as Part of the European Location Framework

Redlands, Calif., Sept. 30, 2013—Esri has joined the European Location Framework (ELF) project to assist in harmonizing and sharing geospatial data across Europe. As part of the project team, Esri has agreed to a grant offer with EuroGeographics to help its 59 members implement ELF and INSPIRE compliant services. Under the grant, Esri will be providing the ArcGIS platform, including ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS for INSPIRE software; support and training; and entrance to the Esri International User Conference.

"Esri is a welcome addition to the European Location Framework," said Dave Lovell, EuroGeographics secretary general and executive director. "The assistance Esri is offering will help the community of national mapping, land registry, and cadastral authorities as they continue to create the interoperable, cross-border, INSPIRE-compliant public-sector information necessary for better decision making."

ELF is funded under the European Commission's Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) and brings together 30 organizations, including 14 European National Mapping Authorities, to harmonize and share authoritative national mapping and cadastral data across Europe. The project will run for three years, having begun in March 2013, and builds upon existing national INSPIRE implementations. ArcGIS Online will serve as the cloud platform for the project, with ArcGIS for INSPIRE feeding national services into the network. Esri will also support the development of various geoprocessing tools including generalization and quality assurance.

"We are pleased to work in partnership with this important community," said Jack Dangermond, president of Esri. "We look forward to helping the EuroGeographics members create and share authoritative datasets that underpin a wide range of social, environmental, and economic applications."
