Welcome to the web site for the European Location Framework (ELF) project. Launched in March 2013, the project runs until October 2016 to deliver a pan-European cloud platform and web services to build on the existing work of the INSPIRE Directive and enable access to harmonised data in cross border applications. At the end of the project ELF moves into a transition phase to further develop ELF into an operational service.
Applied to areas such as emergency mapping, the project will help save lives; in commercial use it will help boost productivity and create jobs.
The project brings together 39 participating organisations into a collaborative consortium that includes national & regional mapping and cadastral agencies, software developers, application providers, research & academia and more.
The project is co-funded by the European Commission’s Competitive and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP) read more
