InGeoClouds project (CIP-ICT-PSP-2011-5) Contract No 297300. The INspired GEOdata CLOUD Services (INGEOCLOUDS) (2012-2014) project aims at demonstrating the feasibility of employing a cloud-based infrastructure coupled with the necessary services to provide seamless access to geospatial public sector information, especially targeting the geological, geophysical and other geoscientific information. This kind of information possesses interesting characteristics like the size of the available data, the existing metadata descriptions (mostly according to the European Directive INSPIRE) and the current availability of related services that can be moved to the cloud. The service-based infrastructure created by the project will survive the pilot and demonstration phases since the partners plan to integrate it in their infrastructure and various charge-on-demand financial models can be employed to support it.
