INF11 – Geospatial strand

This blog post is written on behalf of JISC.

David stressing that projects in this area should have user facing/user interface expertise involved.

Details of this strand are at, and a briefing paper is available at

Looking for 8-12projects, with total funding available £700k – David noting the very tight deadlines on these projects – 6 months – so projects with teams already in place will probably have an advantage.

Proposals required to:

  • Contribute to wider geo community
  • Define end user requirements
  • Describe interoperability as part of other geospatial tools, services and infrastructure
  • have experts in end user, geospatial data, and development
  • Applicability to current and future policies – David mentions the Inspire Directive specifically
  • Reuse existing tools/components where applicable
  • Particiapte in programme activity (13 days)
  • Support from Senior instituiton staff that active participation in community is viable – and that it fits with institutional strategy/objectives

Q: Look at LandMap – something that might be reused by projects

A: Absolutely – LandMap mentioned in briefing document – reuse important
