Building European Spatial Data Infrastructures explores the efforts of the European Union (EU) to create a framework for a multinational infrastructure for spatial information in Europe (INSPIRE). This framework will enable the EU to exploit the myriad opportunities created by modern GIS technologies. In its second edition, this book presents an overview of the innovative activities being performed by both the public and private sector to comply with the INSPIRE Directive, and explains the rationale and the processes involved in SDI development and implementation. Designed as a reference for GIS professionals and decision makers, this book promotes a general understanding of SDI concepts and provides examples of practical applications.

Masser has served as chairman of the Association of Geographic Information Laboratories in Europe (AGILE), president of the European Umbrella Organisation for Geographic Information (EUROGI), and president of the Global Spatial Data Infrastructure Association.
