Project Inspire was our technology preview that helped AutoCAD Map 3D users to find, bind, and publish INSPIRE compliant metadata using an open standard CSW (catalog service for the web) interface. For existing users, the technology preview will cease operation on December 31.
Recall that government organizations and an increasing number of private sector companies are adopting Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) specifications when implementing new geospatial solutions, helping drive interoperability and easier data exchange across borders and between communities. In Europe, this is primarily driven by the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE) directive. Thanks to everyone who participated in the technology preview.
Moving on to the next technology preview is alive in the lab.
