The ICO exists to empower you through information.

The information covered by the Regulations is spatial data. Spatial data is any data with a direct or indirect reference to a specific location or geographical area. Spatial data is often referred to as geospatial data or geographic information.

The ICO has limited responsibilities under INSPIRE, and DEFRA has the role of providing you with information about your responsibilities under the INSPIRE Regulations. For more information, visit the INSPIRE pages of the website and the INSPIRE section of DEFRA’s data sharing platform.
