[OSGeo-Discuss] use of OSGeo software within regional/national SDI efforts

dear all,

Next month I've been asked to give a talk about the OSGeo stack to a 
group responsible for planning Scotland's Spatial Data Infrastructure.

I'm keen to hear of examples of use of OSGeo software packages in SDI 
projects, especially with an INSPIRE focus. For instance I have heard 
that several Scandinavian countries are collaborating on patches to 
GeoNetwork to provide a "member state geoportal" service whose backend 
can be maintained in common.

Particularly relevant are experiences of (semi-)autonomous regions which 
are feeding data in to national infrastructure but also maintaining what 
they consider to be their own SDI. I just asked this on the Spanish list 
as well.

Any examples of OSGeo software use (anything from GDAL/OGR and PostGIS 
through OpenLayers and beyond) that could serve as a few-slides "case 
study" would be much appreciated.
