INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe (INSPIRE) is an initiative by the European Union for a common spatial data infrastructure in Europe. It facilitates the use of spatial data beyond the national boundaries in Europe, especially for common political and environmental decisions.

The European Parliament and the Council ratified the INSPIRE Directive  2007/2/EC. It entered into force on into force on the 15th May 2007 and has been implemented in the meantime by the member states in national law.
