The European Union Location Framework (EULF) Blueprint is a guidance framework for optimising the use of location information in policy and digital public services. It is fully aligned with the European Interoperability Framework (EIF), through its consideration of all aspects of 'location interoperability'.

The Blueprint was initially developed in the EULF project in the ISA programme. The content has received periodic updates to reflect latest developments through the European Location Interoperability Solutions (ELISE) project in the ISA2 programme. Please select one of the following:
