The INSPIRE initiative is a set of activities that aim to build a European infrastructure for spatial information in order to ensure access to spatial data for each of the members of the European Union. By definition, the data is used at European level for planning and research connected with environmental policy, agriculture, transport, energy.

Within the processes related to the legal arrangements, the law in of the infrastructure for spatial information (IIP) in Poland has been agreed that constitutes at the same time a transposition of the INSPIRE directive. This act regulates actions related to the operations of construction and development of the infrastructure for spatial information in the country.

Spatial data themes for which Surveyor General of Poland is responsible are grouped according to the INSPIRE Directive in three thematic groups. Geoportal presents the following data types:
