Agile Data Access Initiative

  1. 1. AGILE Data Access Initiative <ul><li>Proposed Nov 2008 by David Medyckyj-Scott </li></ul><ul><li>Supported by </li></ul><ul><ul><li>by SADL/K.U. Leuven, Belgium </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IACM, FORTH, Heraklion, Greece. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>EuroGeographics: liaison with NMCAs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ESDIN </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the UK, by the Joint Information Systems Committee </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Links to the implementation of INSPIRE; AGILE's involvement in the Persistent Testbed, and a possible European academic SDI </li></ul><ul><li>Limited funding… </li></ul>
  2. 2. Whats the problem? <ul><li>Access to core geospatial data sets (topographic, administrative, hydrography, etc.) is critical for academic research in almost every discipline </li></ul><ul><ul><li>more and more researchers, teachers and students appreciate the value of introducing a spatial dimension to scientific investigation and problem solving </li></ul></ul><ul><li>National Mapping and Cadastral Agencies (NMCAs) are the leading providers of quality geospatial data across Europe </li></ul><ul><li>In many countries it’s difficult for researchers to gain access to the sorts of data provided by NMCAs - many barriers exist </li></ul><ul><li>Trans national research is even harder to do </li></ul><ul><li>But evidence is anecdotal… </li></ul><ul><li>Higher Education in Europe should be an important market for the NMCAs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>there are around 4,000 Higher Education institutions </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>with over 17 million students and 1.5 million staff </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Two online surveys in 2009: <ul><li>Survey of NMCAs </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sent to 52 member institutions from 43 countries </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Focus – “how easy is it for individuals in Higher Education (HE) to gain access to the geospatial data sets produced by your organisation?” </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Survey of Academic Users – their experiences </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sent out on AGILE mailing lists and other forums </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Various other individuals have contacted us </li></ul>
  4. 4. Key Findings - NMCAs <ul><li>Topographic data provided by most agencies. Cadastral data is more restricted </li></ul><ul><li>Majority make 80%+ of their data available and it’s current </li></ul><ul><li>Terms of use are similar </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. not to be passed to 3 rd party, not to be used for commercial research, restrictions on sizemaps published </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Most provide data on CD or DVD; 5 have on-line services </li></ul><ul><li>16 NMCA’s did not respond to the question on negotiating a national agreement and the other 2 said ‘No’ they were not interested </li></ul><ul><li>Majority negotiate with institutions directly </li></ul><ul><li>68% receive requests for data from individuals based in HE OUTSIDE of their country, most try to provide data </li></ul><ul><li>Most would be interested in making their data available to academics and students in other European countries </li></ul>
  5. 5. Key findings – User’s Experience <ul><li>Even spread of responses across the types of institutions respondents came from and their role e.g. researcher, teaching </li></ul><ul><li>30% geographers but wide spread across other disciplines e.g. civil engineering, earth sciences, planning </li></ul><ul><li>86% said it was very important or important for them to have access to geospatial data from their NMCA </li></ul><ul><li>50% said it was very important or important for them to have access to geospatial data for another European country </li></ul><ul><li>Biggest barriers are cost of the data and complexity/restrictions imposed by the licences </li></ul><ul><li>Most felt it was the responsibility of each institution to negotiate with the NMCA for access </li></ul>
  6. 6. Consequences <ul><li>Good evidence to persuade NMCAs there is a market </li></ul><ul><li>Basis for taking forward </li></ul><ul><li>Negotiating on an institution by institution basis is not cost or time effective, national agreements are the way to go </li></ul><ul><li>Reciprocal licences are required for cross border access and sharing but also requires a European wide access control scheme to be in place </li></ul><ul><li>Organisations like EuroGeographics, AGILE, EuroSDR, OGC?, etc, need to come together to push through change </li></ul>
