EULF Blueprint

The European Union Location Framework Blueprint is a guidance framework for 'location-enabling' digital government. The framework is divided into five focus areas, where a 'current state' assessment and 'future state' vision are outlined, and practical recommendations, 'how to' checklists, and best practice references are provided. To use the guidance, either scan the focus areas that interest you or follow the paths created for specific roles and activities. Please let us know if you have any additional best practices to share or suggestions for improvements to the guidance.
