Data owner

Data owners are public authorities as defined in § 5 of the Public Information Act, and third persons, who provide services listed in § 12(1) of the Spatial Data Act.

Data owners shall compile metadata for their spatial data and services in the metadata management environment of the Estonian Geoportal Spatial Data Catalogue. Data entered into the geoportal by data owners is public, can be viewed, searched and downloaded.

To become a user of a metadata management environment, a relevant request form shall be filled in.

The metadata management environment allows the verification of metadata compliance with the requirements of the INSPIRE Directive's Technical Guidance on Metadata (validation).
