About Cartography

This is a dedicated space for sharing tools and guidance aiming at evaluating and rationalising interoperability solutions for public administrations.

Currently, the Cartography page includes the TES Cartography (TESCart) and the European Interoperability Cartography (EIC). The two tools are developed under ISA² Action 2016.36 Assessment of TES Supporting EU Policies.

They are described below:

TES Cartography (TESCart)

TES cartography means a repository of Trans-European interoperability solutions for European public administrations provided by European Union institutions, presented in a common format and modelled using the European Interoperability Reference Architecture (EIRA). It is internal to the European Commission.

European Interoperability Cartography (EIC)

The European Interoperability Cartography (EIC), as defined by the Decision (EU) 2015/2240 is a “repository of interoperability solutions for European public administrations provided by Union institutions and Member States, presented in a common format and complying with specific re-usability and interoperability criteria that can be represented on the EIRA”. The Decision (EU) 2015/2240 further states that “interoperability solutions and updates shall, where appropriate, be included in the EIC and be made available for re-use by European public administrations”.
