EuroSDR (formerly OEEPE) is a European spatial data research organisation that undertakes collaborative applied research projects, hosts focussed workshops, publishes an official series of reports, delivers an annual series of short distance learning courses, contributes to the development of specifications and standards by OGC, ISO and CEN and participates in the drafting of the INSPIRE implementing rules.
Membership consists of organisations representing national GI (Geographical Information) production and/or research throughout Europe with seventeen countries currently represented. Its strength lies in its functioning as a network of delegates, commission chairs and project leaders from production and research organisations, working together on a common research agenda. Research activities, undertaken through international co-operation, serve the European Geoinformatics community and address the whole chain of reference spatial data production, management and delivery.
Activities are guided by its rolling research plans, which are reviewed on a four yearly basis.
