LIFO 2019 | Austria Return to LIFO Factsheets - 2019


The Location Interoperability Framework Observatory (LIFO) is a domain-specific observatory relating to location interoperability. It provides a tool to monitor, assess and report on the state of play of location interoperability in policy and digital public services of EU Member States and other countries implementing INSPIRE.

Overview of 2019 location interoperability status in Austria based on the information provided by Bundesministerium für Landwirtschaft, Regionen und Tourismus (BMLRT - Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism) and the Bundesamt für Eich- und Vermessungswesen (BEV - Federal Office of Metrology and Surveying).

LIFO 2019 Austria


The 2019 country factsheet  for Austria shows that Austria closely reflects the average maturity of the ten surveyed countries with regard to the EULF Blueprint.

In particular, the country is well positioned, achieving slightly higher than average scores in the focus areas “Standardisation and Reuse” and “Digital Government Integration”. Compliance with INSPIRE is a driving factor in both cases.

Austria’s positioning in the “Policy and Strategy Alignment” focus area is in line with the average, and slightly below the average in the “Return on Investment” focus area.

Finally, the “Governance, Partnerships and Capabilities” focus area shows the largest margin for improvement.

LIFO index for 2019
