Directive 2007/2/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 14 March 2007 establishing an Infrastructure for Spatial Information in the European Community (INSPIRE) entered into force in May 2007. It aims at supporting European Community environmental policies, and policies or activities which may have an impact on the environment by, among others,  adopting EU Regulations on Metadata, Data Specifications, Network Services, Data and Service Sharing and Monitoring and Reporting. Together with the PSI Directive its spirit can be regarded as one of the first European laws to account for data user needs.
