If you have discussed OSM with the EC or with INSPIRE please let me know. I visit the DG Environment building a few times a year and would be happy to introduce OSM to them face-to-face. It doesn't seem on their radar yet looking at their 2010 reports. Thanks! --Jmkie 16:51, 16 February 2011 (UTC)
- As far as I can tell from this page, INSPIRE isn't really on OSM's radar either. Which, IMVHO, is a pity.
- INSPIRE is a common semantic geodata specification for the entire European Union. If you ever tried to convince two OSM mappers to use the same tags for the same type of roads, scale that up to all European countries, and you get an idea of what INSPIRE aspires to be. The first datasets are slowly being published, and it would be a great opportunity to define a 1:1 mapping of INSPIRE semantics to OSM tags, so you can convert losslessly and unambiguously between INSPIRE datasets and .osm. If that mapping works both ways, that may be an opportunity to get OSM data into national authoritative datasets. -- Relet (talk) 13:12, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
