One Reference Geo-Information Source for Europe
The European Location Framework enables users to gain access to authoritative, harmonised geographical data from the National Mapping and Cadastral Authorities (NMCAs) based on common specifications. But the European Location Framework needs to do much more than just serve users with data. Much of the value for end users resides in products and services that combine this authoritative data from the NMCAs with data from other sources and possibly even derivative information arrived at through some intelligent processing.
Application developers in five pilot areas were on board from the beginning of the project, addressing applications in emergency mapping, real estate, health statistics, insurance/re-insurance and telecom. However, the intention remains to attract as many application developers as possible and to encourage them in making use of the ELF products and services.
