Presentations from Standards in Action Outreach seminar, in Copenhagen
1. Metadata catalogues in Denmark
The past year, several Danish initiatives have focused on improving the metadata of public sector datasets and on making it easier for end users to find those metadata in the portal of their choice. In order to be successful, it should be simple for data providers to update their metadata and it should be possible to do that in in one place only, despite the co-existence of different catalogues and accompanying standards. This presentation will explain the set-up in Denmark.

2. Towards Safe City – why standards play an important role
As we need to bridge the silos in order to transform a city into
safe/smart, standards have to be used on all different levels. Within the different domains (Government, Transportation, Utilities, Public Safety, Education, …) to lay the foundation for “bridging” as well as from technology perspective (e.g. what to do with sensors, IoT, …) within the geospatial context
3. eGov in Denmark
Lars Erik Storgaard
The workshop will focus on the requirements for Land Cover (LC) standards and possible harmonisation strategies for similar LC concepts like LCML and the European EAGLE
4. Global aspects and requirements for LC Standards
Steffen Fritz is one of the leading domain experts regarding the requirements for global land cover datasets and the challenges to handle sematic issues. Within the presentation the global perspective and requirements for future LC standards are discussed.
6. Use of LC Standards within the INSPIRE Initiative
The INSPIRE Directive aims to create a spatial data infrastructure in Europe, enabling the sharing of environmental spatial information in a harmonized way. One of the data themes covered by the Directive is Land Cover in which the use of the LCML ISO 19144-2 standard is foreseen.
7. The overall EAGLE Concept
