Reusing INSPIRE Protected Sites data for CDDA 2018 delivery to European Environment Agency

The annual ‘Nationally designated areas’ (CDDA) reporting data flow to the European Environment Agency (EEA) has changed in 2018 with the final aim of reusing the achievements of INSPIRE implementation to build a more efficient and automated reporting data flow. The complete data reporting (spatial datasets and related specific thematic data) is obtained through a “linked approach” in which the geospatial information contained in the INSPIRE Protected Sites data sets is combined with the relevant thematic information.
