INSPIRE KEN & EuroSDR Workshop in Paris

If you’d like to get an excellent overview of available software and approaches for transforming data to INSPIRE formats, a good opportunity is coming up: THE INSPIRE KEN (Knowledge Exchange Network) and EuroSDR are organizing a workshop about schema transformation tools and methods in the premises of the ENSG – Marne-La-Vallée (near Paris) – France.

Citing from the workshop’s information and registration page, “NMCAs, as other data producers, will have to make their data compliant with INSPIRE interoperability Implementing Rules; during [the] next years, this compliance will mainly be achieved through schema and data transformation. The objectives of the workshop is to make a state-of-play about (existing or projected) schema transformation tools, to help NMCAs to assess these tools and to help them to choose the most appropriate and possibly, to provide background to disseminate knowledge about schema transformation at national level.

The workshop is scheduled from Tuesday 8th October 2013 09:00 – Wednesday 9th October 2013 16:00. This is the draft lineup of presentations of the workshop:
