In the EGN-project the service implementation of the EuroGeographics’ EuroGeoNames (EGN) data set will be renewed. In this renewal the data model of the service database will be simplified, new service access interfaces providing better support for the common Web technologies will be developed and the EGN-service will be deployed as a cloud service. At the same time new countries are supported in their efforts to connect to the EGN-service as data providers. A plan will also be developed on automated mechanisms, by which the contents of the EGN-service could be updated from the national level EGN-service nodes.
