It is essential for the success of GMES that the various information supplies to an eventual operational system can be integrated together. An obstacle to this integration is the variety of data policies that condition access to the data.
The proposed Accompanying Measure will:
1) document the data policies of the variety of information foreseen for GMES;
2) identify the obstacles and;
3) make recommendations on actions to improve data policy coherence. The project will use a proven template to collect information on data policy from the GMES pilot projects and from other published and unpublished information sources.
