Many European countries are setting up initiatives and taking actions to make their data ‘open’, i.e. to make data freely available for use and re-use without restrictions. The presentation provides an analysis of how European member states are dealing with both the governance of their open spatial data policies and the monitoring and assessing the performance of these policies. Particular attention will be paid to the alignment of open data policies and spatial data policies in European countries. The presentation also aims to assess the performance of current open spatial data policies in Europe. While in certain member states monitoring the performance and impact of spatial data policies is only done in the context of the official INSPIRE monitoring and reporting process, some member states go further, and have developed and implemented a more detailed and systematic monitoring framework. The presentation critically evaluates current practices and experiences in monitoring the performance of spatial data policies, and explore how they fit into existing models and frameworks for measuring the performance of – open – data policies in general.
