INSPIRE harmonization projects based on open data.

The data

All services / access points of our organization can be accessed by: or search via


Various Dutch government parties must provide INSPIRE with open data in a format coordinated by the member states, a European geodata initiative. In this repository we try to use open data sources from Dutch governments and translate them directly into INSPIRE (harmonization). Where there are gaps in harmonization, these will be identified. After which the relevant Dutch source holders will be motivated to not only to deliver all required entities to INSPIRE, but also to immediately extend the open datasets with mandattorie data, already available in the Netherlands. We think this synchronization is important to support the same data nationally and internationally for the (public) users.

This project uses HALE Studio that is available for iOS, Windows and Linux.

There are a number of best practices on the INSPIRE website. The starting point for this document is the instruction dataset harmonization in Portugal with HALE as the starting point.

In connection with international cooperation, the information is available in English and Dutch as much as possible.

We distinguish the source data, the documents, the metadata for the results and the harmonization / mapping. We assume that the results are made available in accordance with INSPIRE via hosting of Services. Hosting parties for the Netherlands include PDOK, wetransform GmbH.

In Metadata_INSPIRE.xlsx we manage a combined overview of the requested payment types per theme linked to the data offered (As-Is).

The subdirectories of the map harmonization contain .halex files and mapping tables. The .halex files can be opened from HALE-Studio.
