The paper proposes to use European resources in GIS as a set of multi-spatial objects with semantic relations to the space. It improves the analysis and visualization of geographic or contextual associations between various items. This paper aims to integrate the Europeana Data Model with GIS for movable heritage based on semantic relations of movable objects with the space. All classes and properties of the EDM were analyzed. Classes and properties containing spatial information were examined and their semantic relations to the space were proposed. All aspects of the relations of movable heritage objects and space were taken into consideration, and examples of the GIS-based pilot resources saved with the use of EDM rules are proposed.
