Abstract: With respect to meeting spatial data user requirements, questions of public access to public information are likely to be a critical factor. Many national governments throughout the world are involved in developing spatial data infrastructures in order to facilitate the availability of and access to spatial data at all levels of government, the commercial sector, the non-profit sector, academia and citizens in general. In July 2004 the INSPIRE Proposal for a Directive was adopted by the Commission, aiming to establish an INfrastructure for Spatial InfoRmation in Europe. The European infrastructure delivers integrated spatial information services that allow users to identify and access geospatial information from a wide range of sources, from the regional to the Pan-European level, for a variety of uses, while the EU Geo-Portal is Europe's Internet access point to a collection of spatial data and services. This paper focuses on the citizens’ requirements to remotely access spatial information.
