Gwynedd Council

Gwynedd Council has developed a web mapping service that reduces the cost and complexity of complying with the European Union (EU) INSPIRE directive. It is now making its GIS-based service available to neighbouring councils so that other Welsh local authorities can save money and avoid EU penalties.

Read the case study for information on how:

  • Esri’s ArcGIS platform makes council data sets accessible in multiple formats, as downloads or via a map viewer.
  • Gwynedd Council saves time and money as it no longer has to respond to as many individual requests for data.
  • Local authorities can cut costs by not using a third party supplier to help them meet the terms of the EU INSPIRE directive.


"We have shown that there is an easy way to comply with INSPIRE. We hope our web service will encourage many other councils in Wales to collaborate with us and share data."

Aled Owen Jones, GIS Technical Lead, Gwynedd Council
