Resumen

El tiempo transcurrido después de la transposición de la Directiva
europea INSPIRE a la legislación portuguesa justifica un análisis
sobre la aplicación de la presente Directiva en Portugal: lo que
ha cambiado, qué logros se obtuvieron, pero también qué queda
por hacer. Portugal tiene un nuevo geoportal para la Infraestructura
Nacional de Datos Espaciales – SNIG, desarrollado con
GeoNetwork. Este geoportal incluye nuevas funcionalidades para
facilitar y hacer más eficiente la búsqueda y visualización de datos
espaciales. La implementación de INSPIRE en Portugal dio lugar
a la definición de nuevas especificaciones técnicas para producir
cartografía de referencia a gran escala, basada en las especificaciones
de datos y directrices técnicas de INSPIRE. Analizando el
número de metadatos de datos espaciales portugueses notificados
anualmente a la Comisión Europea y el número de datos
espaciales disponibles a través de los servicios de visualización
y descarga es posible verificar que hay un aumento significativo
de los datos espaciales compartidos por autoridades públicas
de Portugal. En los últimos 10 años se han superado una serie
de barreras para una implementación exitosa de INSPIRE, pero
todavía hay desafíos, a saber: tener datos espaciales más conformes
compartidos a través de servicios de descarga, tener más
datos espaciales que cumplan con las especificaciones de datos
de INSPIRE y una mayor participación de los Gobiernos Locales
en torno a esta Directiva Europea.
