In the premises of Hotel Tirana International, ASIG, as part of the IMPULS project, conducted a workshop with the theme “Geospatial Information Infrastructure in Albania – National Geoportal.” The workshop was attended by representatives of public authorities responsible for the topics covered in Article 11 of Law 72/2012 “On the organization and functioning of the National Geospatial Information Infrastructure in the Republic of Albania,” as well as representatives of other institutions whose work is based on geospatial information. The objective of this workshop was to enable responsible public authorities to benefit from the services of the National Geoportal through live demonstrations related to user registration, metadata creation, and data download.

The workshop presenters emphasized the importance of the National Geospatial Information Infrastructure in the decision-making process, the steps taken for the implementation of the INSPIRE directive, and the services provided by the National Geoportal for public authorities. ASIG experts provided a live demonstration of the user registration process on the Geoportal, editing and updating metadata for relevant layers, as well as the network services offered through it, including metadata discovery, data viewing, and downloading.
