Geographical focus

The project’s long term goal is to facilitate water management and reduce flood risks and impacts with increased EC INSPIRE directive compliance of data and data services needed. It will be reached with establishment of vertical component of geodetic reference frame and combined vertical/horizontal geodetic network, improvement of quality of geodetic reference frame and it’s compliance with INSPIRE requirements on coordinate reference system (CRS), with INSPIRE compliance and extension of territorial coverage of topographic data, especially on hydrography and with establishment of INSPIRE network spatial data services to provide necessary data to the processes of flood risk assessment and spatial planning.
