INSPIRE and the work of UK location

The UK Location programme is a UK pan-government initiative to improve the sharing and re-use of public sector location information. Established following the publication of the UK Location Strategy, it incorporates the implementation of the strategy and the EC INSPIRE Directive. Key to delivering both INSPIRE and the broader strategy is the use of interoperable data and service standards. This forms the basis of providing a spatial data infrastructure that works in the wider context of internet technologies and critically with other information domains. To do this UK Location encourages and in some cases enforces data standards but also works to enable use of location data more widely through broader standards such as linked data.
