The objective of eSDI-Net+, is to bring together existing SDI key players and target users in a Thematic Network to be established as a platform for communication and exchange between different stakeholders invo lved in the creation and use of SDI's. The network will promote high-level decisions, technical discussion and information exchange, in order to increase awareness concerning the importance of GI enrichment and of SDI's for GI reuse, to allow an integrated view of the experts and to permit the creation of integrated guidelines, standards, and implementation of best practices. Within the network, communication mechanisms between the European and local levels will be implemented to maximize the benefits of INSPIRE, GMES and GALILEO, regarding digital GI content.
With eSDI-Net+, multicultural and multilingual aspects in accessing, exploiting, using, and reusing digital GI content in Europe will be addressed. As a result, the proposed project will contribute to achieving interoperability between national digital collections and services (e.g. through common standards) and facilitating access and use of the material in a multilingual context.
