Definition of Data harmonization:
“Harmonization is to create the possibility to combine data from heterogeneous sources into integrated, consistent and unambiguous information products, in a way that is of no concern to the end-user”
This is the common definition for Data harmonization, other definitions can be discussed in the article


According to INSPIRE definition: “The process of developing a common set of data product specifications in a way that allows the provision of access to spatial data through spatial data services in a representation that allows for combining it with other harmonised data in a coherent way.”

NOTE: This includes agreements about coordinate reference systems, classification systems, application schemas, etc.
