Type of practice:
The EUSC data model is used for the purpose of the Impact Assessment on establishing a space surveillance and tracking support programme. The structure of this model is based on the Multinational Geospatial Co-operation Program (MGCP), which is a widely accepted and used standard by the international geo-community. This new model enables a better interoperability and understanding of the EUSC produced vector data. The corresponding IA Report (http://ec.europa.eu/governance/impact/ia_carried_out/cia_2013_en.htm#home) gives an account of this application.
