1INTRODUCTION A new data and services policy for IGN Spain and CNIG (the body responsible for the spreading and commercialization of IGN products) was defined by Ministerial Order FOM 956/2008 [1], recognising that INSPIRE Directive (2007/2/CE) [2] has introduced a new scenario in Europe, based on cooperation among different actors, that needs to promote the access and usage of geographic data. The Spanishlegal framework on that topic is defined by a set of legal texts: - The future Spanish law on Infrastructure for Spatial Information, transposing INSPIRE Directive (2007/2/CE) [2]. There is a final draft accepted by WG for

Spanish NSDI and the official text approved by Spanish parliament is expected during this year 2010. - Law 27/2006 [3], about citizen’s rights for accessing information, forpublic participation and for accessing justice in environmental issues, transposing Directives 2003/4/CE [4] and 2003/35/CE [5]. Environmental information is often geographic information as far as it is georeferenced or could be expressed in maps. - Law 37/2007 [6], about the reuse of public sector information, transposing Directive 2003/98/CE [7], that is applicable to geographic information. -Law 11/2007 [8] on citizen’s electronic access to the public sector services. - Royal Decree 1545/2007 [9] defining the Cartographic National System as a way of make easy the cooperation and data sharing between cartography producers in Spain. Te new data policy was defined trying to adapt the spreading, distribution and licensing mechanism of IGN to the content of all this regulations.Ministerial Order FOM 956/2008 [1] divides IGN cartographic production in two categories: 1) The National Reference Geographic Equipment (EGRN) composed by: geodetic and levelling networks, cartographic grid systems; Basic Geographic Gazetteer, Administrative Boundaries and the National Municipal Geographic References Inventory. 2) The rest of cartographic products. EGRN data are considered a set of verybasic reference data and therefore, it is allowed to use it freely for all purposes with the only condition of mentioning the authorship of IGN Spain. The rest of geographic data produced by IGN Spain could be used for any purpose and applications with the conditions of mentioning IGN Spain authorship, non doing commercial uses of data. Data can be given to a third party only if this third partaccepts those conditions. For commercial uses of data not included in the EGRN, a specific license must be accepted and signed, included a cost that depends on several factors and it is usually defined as a percentage of the annual benefit obtained with the product or service including IGN data.
