Dear All,

I recall seeing a nice paper on the desk of my colleage working on th INSPIRE SoP project - a Spanish paper on SDI and Open Source - implementation in La Palma Island.

>From the research I did within NESIS  - few samples:
Hungary: http://okir.kvvm.hu the technologic background of the system which - in accordance with the SEIS principles - is based completely on free and mostly open source components using LAMP (Linux-Apache-MySQL, PHP) architecture. 
Italy: SINAnet catalogue of data sources (FONTI): http://www.fonti.sinanet.apat.it

Subject: [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.
