Abstract In order to facilitate a more effective accessibility of European spatial datasets, an assessment was carried out by the GeoDesk of the WUR to identify and describe key datasets that will be relevant for research carried out within WUR and MNP. The outline of the Metadata catalogue European spatial datasets, the classification of the datasets and the use of specific standards, is based on the work which was be done by the INSPIRE (INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe) initiative. The objective of the report is that it can speed up the process for identification of suitable datasets during the following steps: - to inform on the existence of European spatial datasets that could be relevant for a specific project; - to evaluate if a dataset will be suitable by exploring the metadata; - to indicate if a relevant spatial dataset is available and give directions how it can be obtained
