Municipality of Thessaloniki in order to
dynamically reconfigure the provided services to citizens
proceeded to radical redesign of the geographical information
portal (WEBGIS). The new upgraded WEBGIS Portal integrates
cutting-edge technologies of Geographical Information systems
and Information Technology.
Municipality of Thessaloniki is
establishing an infrastructure for spatial information to
support Community environmental policies, and policies or
activities which may have an impact on the environment. The new
geospatial infrastructure platform integrated according the
international interoperability standards (OGC, ISO) and the
fundamentals of the INSPIRE EU Directive. Common Implementing
Rules (IR) are adopted in a number of specific areas (Metadata,
Data Specifications, Network Services, Data and Service Sharing
and Monitoring and Reporting).
The primary objective of the renovation
activities of Municipality of Thessaloniki is to provide
innovative e-services of access, viewing and downloading the
Geospatial Data of Thessaloniki.
