Abstract: The general situation on spatial information is one of fragmented datasets and sources, gaps in availability, lack of harmonization between data sets at different geographical scales, and duplication of information collections. Addressing these issues, providers of geographic information in Europe have to deliver their contents relating to specifications emerging in for the context of the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE). Schema translation plays a critical role in this process. We developed a translation procedure using Web Service technology. Two efficient and sufficiently loosely coupled components, Rule Management Component and Translation Execution Component were designed and implemented. We present both in this paper. Our solution guarantees extensibility in mapping rule structure and of translation operations. We allow users to customize geospatial information and thus enable flexible information exchange. We suggest and compare two options of using the developed software.
