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 Portugal based on the information provided by Direção-Geral do Território (Directorate-General for Territory).

LIFO 2019 Portugal


Portugal’s state of play in location interoperability identified through implementation of the EULF Blueprint recommendations shows gaps to the European averages in all focus areas, measured across 10 surveyed countries.

The widest deviation from the averages is in the focus area “Standardisation and Reuse”, due to a low alignment with all recommendations. 

One of the focus areas where Portugal is best positioned is “Digital Government Integration”, where the scores for three out of the four recommendations are reasonably well aligned with the European average.

At the same level is the “Return on Investment” focus area, where Portugal demonstrates some positive actions.

LIFO index for 2019

The value of the overall LIFO index is 0.30, against an average of 0.54 for all surveyed countries.
