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.
