Many international, European, regional, and national organizations are active in spatial data collection and analysis. Their activities for spatial data management as well as the implementation of geoportals outline the need for harmonization of the infrastructures with existing data in different areas and in the forestry. The forests spatial data in Bulgaria are part of various information systems, specialized projects, and active national portals. The information process is characterized by rapid technological progress, but there are also duplication of data and efforts, departmental limits of the created data, and unsatisfactory communication between the sectors. A factor for the optimization of information infrastructure for forest areas in Bulgaria is the alignment of the legal framework to the European and international legislation. The transposition of the European INSPIRE Directive is implemented through the Low on Access to the Spatial Data. The requirements for the establishment of such infrastructure and the National Spatial Data Portal are defined from 2015. This has contributed to adapting existing data to the requirements of the Directive, but only under the 34 INSPIRE thematic areas. The present work examines the possibilities for the development of geoportals as a useful means of data exchange, allowing access to a wider range of users, enriching the INSPIRE Directive toolkit and expanding a variety of thematic layers for forestry, agricultural, urban, and other territories.
