Portugal Factsheet 2019

The Location Interoperability Framework Observatory (LIFO) monitors the implementation of location interoperability good practices in European public administrations, based on the level of adoption of recommendations in the EULF Blueprint.

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.

Portugal has participated also in LIFO 2020. For the 2020 factsheet, click here.
