Open ELS Project launches user interface
Open data services developed using official national sources of geospatial information are now available through an easy-to-use interface.
The Open European Location Services (ELS) Project customer interface, which demonstrates the potential of providing a single access point for harmonised European data from different countries, was developed by ThinkWhere and accessed at https://www.euro-geo-opendata.eu.
Users simply register, activate their account and then select the services they want to connect to.
The services available include:
- Open EuroGlobalMap, topographic data from 45 countries and territories
- An open cadastral index map
- An open regional gazetteer service
- And, demonstrations of open web feature test services for addresses and buildings.
Once users have selected a service, a unique access path, username and token, is provided for use in their own applications to connect to the service.
