Spatineo’s EU patent application for the intelligent monitoring technology of Spatineo Monitor was published on the 19th of August. Once the European patent application has been published, files relating to it are available for public inspection from the European Patent Register, which can be accessed via the EPO website (

Spatineo Monitor’s innovation is a unique application of machine learning. The monitoring network simulates the real-world usage of spatial web services by varying request parameters intelligently. Each monitoring request is unique, and they are sent every five minutes to the spatial web service that are monitored. The practical benefit of the patent pending technology is that it enables efficient quality assurance of spatial web services. The accessibility, response time and standards compliance of a spatial web service can be accurately measured and analysed with the help of the technology. The solution also supports the implementation of the EU INSPIRE directive by gathering all the data on the quality of service which have to be annually reported to the European Commission.
