SDI 4 Apps - Uptake of open geographic information through innovative services based on linked data

SDI4Apps is an EU-funded project managed by the University of West Bohemia from the Czech Republic. The project is being implemented with the concerted effort of 18 organizations across Europe. SDI4Apps seeks to build a cloud-based framework with open API for data integration focusing on the development of six pilot applications. The project draws along the lines of INSPIRE, Copernicus and GEOSS and aspires to build a WIN-WIN strategy for building a successful business for hundreds of SMEs on the basis of European spatial data infrastructures.

PILOT 1: Easy data access

Aims to support easy access to existing services using the SDI4Apps platform API solution, which supports easy collection of information using smart phones and integrates this information into current SDIs, by implementing the European Tourism Indicators System (ETIS) and Ground Truthing services.

PILOT 2: Open Smart Tourist Data

This pilot focus is on collecting, integrating and presenting tourist related data. This can be then further reused for various applications.

PILOT 3: Open Sensor Network

Aiming to allow farmers to integrate low cost sensors into local and regional web sensor networks. Meteorological data and in-situ meteorological sensing networks will be used to support the crop production systems.

PILOT 4: Open Land Use Map Through VGI

Land use involves management and modification of natural environment into built environment such as fields, pastures, and settlements. The intention is to support voluntary initiative for open land use mapping, extending the initiative outside of Europe.


Open INSPIRE4Youth will support creativity, technical capabilities, skills, knowledge, and relations, focusing on methods where young people are able to contribute to environmental and social issues.

PILOT 6: Ecosystem services evaluation

Identification of spatial representation of the outcomes of ESS Evaluation, focusing on sustainable support of tourism. The pilot web application will utilise the outcomes of Open API adopted by the project.
