NextGEOSS is not only co-organizing but we are actively participating in the Orléans/OGC INSPIRE Hackathon 2018 through several teams as well as setting up a testing environment on the NextGEOSS CKAN-based European data hub.


The key topic of The ORLÉANS/OGC INSPIRE Hackathon 2018 is metadata, its standardisation, and innovative approaches to its management and presentation. Learn how you can participate in this hackathon – and become a member of the INSPIRE hackathons community.


The INSPIRE hackathons are organised annually in the frame of the INSPIRE conference. Throughout the year, there are organised so called ‘satellite’ INSPIRE hackathons focused on different topics. The results from all the satellite hackathons are then presented at the INSPIRE conference.


The ORLÉANS/OGC INSPIRE Hackathon 2018 is one of the satellite hackathons organised as part of the INSPIRE hackathon series. This hackathon is organised by the Plan4all association in close cooperation with NextGEOSS partner the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and several EU projects including DataBio, NextGEOSS, PoliVisu, and EUXDAT.


The ORLÉANS/OGC INSPIRE Hackathon 2018 is organised as part of the 106th OGC Technical Committee meeting in Orléans (France) on 22nd March 2018. Information about the venue is available here. OGC is writing about the hackathon here.


The hackathon is ongoing virtually since in February 2018. It is still possible to either join one of the teams already established or create your own team addressing a topic of your choice. The OGC meeting in Orléans 22nd March 2018 will serve as a platform for presenting the hackathon results, including the award ceremony.


Several webinars have been organized, the last taking place 14th March 11 am CET. It is not too late to sign up and attend:


Unifying data and metadata, publishing linked data, metadata and Open Land Use datasets.


All webinars are educational in addition to inform you about the work of the teams.
