ICT Training Package

The Information and communication technology training package has the scope to introduce technical and non-technical people to the different aspects of data management, sharing and interoperability that are behind the InfoMAP Technological Infrastructure.

In order to facilitate the  people in following the training modules available, we have identify two skill and  path: the first is the basic knowledge to understand the general process needed to manage  and use the data archived or collected in the InfoMAP; the second is more technical advanced introducing the technical knowledge to implement data flow in harmonized structure, the data and metadata interoperability by the way  web standard services and  the spatial data infrastructure itself.

Basic knowledge

1 - GIS Introduction

The main objective of the training module is to provide a gentle and clear definition about what is a GIS, which are the key components of a GIS, which are the inputs of the system, and how important it is the that geodata plays in the whole system.

3 - Introduction to INSPIRE

The aim of this module is to introduce the INSPIRE Directive, its background, development and expected impacts.

4 - Introduction to geospatial web and web geoservices

The module provides an introduction to the geospatial web, which allows to search, deliver, download and process geospatial data over the web in an interoperable way thanks to a set of web services.

5 - Metadata and Catalogue Services

The module describes what metadata is and how important it is for data access within a distributed computing environment; the catalog is a central component of the process of information sharing, information dissemination or information awareness.

6 - Data Quality

Geospatial data quality elements describes the inherent characteristics of geographical data that should allow the user to evaluate its fitness for use. Usually, geospatial data quality is often specified by intangible properties such as completeness, accuracy and consistency.

7 - Basic concepts of XML and GML

XML (Extensible Markup Language) has become the de­facto standard for interchanging data over the internet. It is one of the most important IT standards when building Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI’s). The GML (Geography Markup Language) is the XML grammar that specifies geographical features.
