INSPIRE GIS Consortium wins EUROSTARS Grant

News INSPIRE Projects Research

We’re proud to announce that together with Geosparc, Epsilon Italia and Fraunhofer IGD, wetransform has been awarded a EUROSTARS EUREKA grant. The grant with a total volume of 700.000 EUR will enable our group to build a cloud solution to make geospatial data ready for new applications, such as Environmental Reporting, Big Data Analytics, Spatial Data Infrastructures and Smart Cities.


We will build on hale studio, hale»connect, geomajas and other open source technology to develop a full solution to design, transform, validate and publish geospatial data. This solution enables organisations to create, maintain and consume INSPIRE data easily and cost-effectively.

In the project, wetransform, Fraunhofer and Geosparc will develop several key capabilities:

  • New touch-first User Interfaces for schema mapping
  • Serverless transformation and download services
  • Cartographic visualization and analysis for linked data
  • Interfaces for Web-Accessible geospatial content

In addition to the technical work, Dirk Frigne of Geosparc will act as the project coordinator, and Giacomo Martirano of Epsilon Italia will take responsibility distribution and technology partner network.
