Register now for the ePSIplatform 2013 Conference! It's free!

Mai postánkból. Ton Zijlstra az ePSIplatform közösség-összefogója küldte az alábbi figyelemfelhívást:
"Dear Gabor Remetey-Fülöpp,

Come to the ePSIplatform 2013 Conference: "Gotcha -  getting everybody on board"

The program for our upcoming conference on 22 February in Warsaw is very much taking shape. Take a look at the program! With over 45 speakers in 12 sessions, we cover a wide diversity of topics and issues. All aimed at bringing more people into the open data effort and mainstream the use of open data in society. Start the new year well, to make it a great Open Data year: Register now (it's free)!

PSI re-use is in the process of reaching a certain degree of maturity and uptake. However, this uptake differs significantly between Member States, PSI domains and stakeholders. The ePSIplatform Conference will therefore be aimed at reaching those that should embark, but have (partly) failed to do so far: "Gotcha! – getting everyone on board". 

Our Polish partners Centrum Cyfrowe and the University of Warsaw (Cyber Law) and us will make sure you have an inspiring experience.

Register now for the ePSIplatform 2013 Conference! It's free!

2013 European Open Data/PSI re-use

Mai postánkból. Dr. Katleen Janssen a GSDI L&SE szakbizottság fórumán írja:
Dear Sir, dear Madam,
You are warmly invited to the 2013 European Open Data/PSI re-use event of the year, organized by the ePSIplatform, Europe’s one-stop shop for PSI/Open Data re-use. The program will combine inspiring plenary sessions featuring top speakers with interactive parallel sessions.
PSI re-use is in the process of reaching a certain degree of maturity and uptake. However, this uptake differs significantly between Member States, PSI domains and stakeholders. The ePSIplatform Conference will therefore be aimed at those that should embark, but have (partly) failed to do so far: "Gotcha! – getting everyone on board".

You can find the preliminary 
program on our website.

Where and When: Save the Date!

The event takes place on Friday 22 February 2013 and is kindly hosted by the famous 
Warsaw University, in close collaboration with Centrum Cyfrowe, the leading Polish think tank on the role of ICTs in society.

Why YOU should be there
  • You will be able to learn, share and inspire, and be inspired.
  • You will have the opportunity to speak and be heard on the ongoing debate on the adoption of the PSI Directive.
  • You will learn all about recent and upcoming Open Data/PSI developments.
  • You will be able to put new challenges on the agenda.
  • You will meet new people and engage with them face-to-face, and, of course
  • You simply do not want to miss it!
Who else will be there?
Like at our 2012 ePSIplatform conference in Rotterdam, with well over 300 participants from 40 countries, the 2013 conference in Warsaw will attract a wide variety of stakeholders: Public data holders, application builders, data journalists, policy makers, competition authorities, Open Data community members, data portal owners, commercial re-users, start-ups, researchers, NGOs, and anyone with a passion for PSI/Open Data re-use.

Participation is free, and (free) registration for the conference is open.
We hope to see you there!
On behalf of the ePSIplatform team,
Katleen Janssen

About the LAPSI project

LAPSI is a project in the FP7 program of the European Union.
Legal Aspects of the Public Sector Information and Re-use.
Timespan: 30 months. Participants: 20 institutions and organistions. Coordinator: University of Torino.
Kick-off Meeting: Torino, 26-28 March, 2010

Role of HUNAGI in the LAPSI Project

HUNAGI contribution is related mainly to the Geographic Information which are produced, maintained and used in land management, including surveying, mapping, cadastre and land registration, remote sensing and serviced by relevant spatial data infrastructures. From a national economic point of view, the uniform land registration system operating in Hungary is one of the most important databases of the country. This system allows to obtain over the time updated legal and geometric data, as well as other information (e.g. on ownership, land uses, mortgages, etc.). The cadastral maps integrated into the uniform land registration system show spatial relations and references of rights, facts and other information appearing on the property sheets, serving as a basis of engineering planning for the national economy. The national spatial data infrastructure can be built on this uniform, authorized and public land registration system, in small partial modules, following the EU INSPIRE Directive. HUNAGI will participate to all Working Groups and actively take part to Working Groups 01, 03 and 04. It also makes its facilities available to host one of the thematic network seminars or conferences.
