Feature Catalogue 'INSPIRE application schemas'

Version:

n/a (each application schema is versioned separately)

Date:

March 2014

Scope:

This feature catalogue gives an informative overview of the spatial object types and data types defined in the INSPIRE data specifications. These types are used by data providers for the exchange and classification of spatial objects from data sets that relate to one or several INSPIRE spatial data themes.

For the normative requirements, please refer to the COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) No 1253/2013 of 21. October 2013 on the interoperability of spatial data sets and services. For a more detailed description of the application schemas, see the data specification guidance documents at http://inspire.jrc.ec.europa.eu/index.cfm/pageid/2.

The application schemas for extension of spatial data themes of Annex II or III are still draft schemas.

Spatial Object Type: UtilityNetwork

UtilityNetwork

Title:

utility network

Definition:

Collection of network elements that belong to a single type of utility network.

Description:

In the real world, objects are connected to each other: an optical cable is connected to a multiplexer that in turn is connected to copper cables connecting into our homes to provide cable TV, telephony and internet access. Using GIS to support network utility management typically involves many types of features that may have connectivity to each other. Topology in GIS is generally defined as the spatial relationship between connecting or adjacent features, and is an essential prerequisite for many spatial operations such as network analysis. Utility networks can be described as NaN (Node-Arc-Node) network using two basic geometric types: points (aka nodes) and polylines (aka arcs). NaN topologies can be directed or un-directed, depending on specific type of network (i.e. water networks are directed, while telecommunications networks are not). Such topology structure provides an automated way to handle digitising and editing errors, and enable advanced spatial analyses such as adjacency, connectivity and containment. Infrastructure networks rely on Generic network model developed during Annex I.

Note:

Via the attribute "utilityNetworkType", that uses the "UtilityNetworkTypeValue" codelist, the type of utility network can be defined. E.g. by selecting the "sewer" value, the utility network becomes a "sewer utility network".

Using the "crossTheme" value, a utility network can be created that contains e.g. ducts, which can contain pipes and cables from various utility network types.

Spatial Object Type: UtilityNetwork

UtilityNetwork

Title:

utility network

Definition:

Collection of network elements that belong to a single type of utility network.

Description:

In the real world, objects are connected to each other: an optical cable is connected to a multiplexer that in turn is connected to copper cables connecting into our homes to provide cable TV, telephony and internet access. Using GIS to support network utility management typically involves many types of features that may have connectivity to each other. Topology in GIS is generally defined as the spatial relationship between connecting or adjacent features, and is an essential prerequisite for many spatial operations such as network analysis. Utility networks can be described as NaN (Node-Arc-Node) network using two basic geometric types: points (aka nodes) and polylines (aka arcs). NaN topologies can be directed or un-directed, depending on specific type of network (i.e. water networks are directed, while telecommunications networks are not). Such topology structure provides an automated way to handle digitising and editing errors, and enable advanced spatial analyses such as adjacency, connectivity and containment. Infrastructure networks rely on Generic network model developed during Annex I.

Note:

Via the attribute "utilityNetworkType", that uses the "UtilityNetworkTypeValue" codelist, the type of utility network can be defined. E.g. by selecting the "sewer" value, the utility network becomes a "sewer utility network".

Using the "crossTheme" value, a utility network can be created that contains e.g. ducts, which can contain pipes and cables from various utility network types.

Spatial Object Type: BreakLine

BreakLine

Title:

breakline

Definition:

Description:

SOURCE Adapted from [ISO 19107:2003].

EXAMPLE

Breaklines represent local ridges or depressions (streams or drainage lines) in the surface, man-made structures (e.g. roads), etc.

NOTE 1 A breakline connects points with different elevation and therefore its description using 2.5-D coordinates (using the 'geometry' attribute) is fully recommended.

NOTE 2 No triangle in a TIN may cross a breakline (in other words, breakline segments are enforced as triangle edges), even if doing so violates the triangulation criterion.

NOTE 3 All breaklines are located on the ground surface or on any of the artificial structures built on it.

PERC

Pan-European Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Reserves (PERC).

The PERC Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves sets out minimum standards, recommendations and guidelines for Public Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves in the United Kingdom, Ireland and Europe. The Code has been adopted by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3), the Geological Society of London (GSL), the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) and the Institute of Geologists of Ireland (IGI), and is therefore binding on their individual members.

RF

Russian reserve guidelines.

Russian reserve guidelines are in a state of transition from the system utilized within Soviet state companies to a new system more closely aligned with the needs of private industry.

SPE/WPC/AAPG(PRMS)

Petroleum Resources Management System.

In 2000, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) jointly with the World Petroleum Council (WPC) and the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) published a Reserve and Resource Classification to address the requirement for an international standard. The underlying Reserves Definitions were unchanged from those published by the SPE/WPC in 1997. Additionally, in 2001 the SPE/WPC/AAPG jointly published Guidelines for the Evaluation of Petroleum Reserves and Resources as clarifications for the application of the 2001 and 1997 documents. Further clarification was provided in the Glossary of 2005, in particular by the definition of the term commercial, and thereby reserves.

UNFC1997

EnvironmentalManagementFacility

Title:

environmental management facility

Definition:

A physical structure designed, built or installed to serve specific functions in relation to environmental material flows, such as waste or waste water flows, or a delimitable area of land or water used to serve such functions.

Description:

EXAMPLE In the context of waste management the "specific function" may be a waste recovery or disposal operation. Typically, waste management sites and waste management installations (such as incineration plants, landfills or storages) get distinguished. Multiple waste management installations may be found at the same site. Waste management installations can be a part of other waste management installations.

The functions considered for the Environmental Facilities Theme fall mainly under the NACE rev. 2 category E "Water supply; Sewerage; Waste management and remediation activities".

Spatial Object Type: GridObservation

GridObservation

Definition:

Observation representing a gridded field at a single time instant.

Description:

A GridObservation is an observation of some phenomenon (or phenomena) over a gridded field. E.g. Output from a model, or rectified, georeferenced satellite data.

The result of a GridObservation is a discrete coverage within a compound spatiotemporal CRS where the domain consists of a two- or three-dimensional grid of points, all having the same time instant temporal component.

Subtype of:

Spatial Object Type: GridSeriesObservation

GridSeriesObservation

Definition:

Observation representing an evolving gridded field at a succession of time instants.

Description:

A GridSeriesObservation is a time series of gridded fields representing the same phenomenon (or phenomena) over a series of times. E.g. Ocean model output.

The result of a GridSeriesObservation is a discrete coverage within a compound spatiotemporal CRS where the domain consists of a series of two- or three-dimensional grids of points, each at a successive time instant.

Spatial Object Type: Habitat

Habitat

Title:

habitat

Definition:

Geographical areas characterised by specific ecological conditions, processes, structure, and functions that physically support the organisms that live there.

Description:

Includes terrestrial and aquatic areas distinguished by geographical, abiotic and biotic features, whether entirely natural or semi-natural [Directive 2007/2/EC].

A Habitat area, line or point may comprise one or more HabitatTypesCoverTypes according to one or more habitat classification schemes, often depending on the data capture process or related to the scale of a map. So a habitat feature might represent a complex of different HabitatTypesCoverTypes.

NOTE Although habitats in principle are geographical areas, they may also be depicted as lines or points.

habitat type

Definition:

The identifier for a habitat class, defined and described in an international, national or local habitat classification scheme.

Description:

Habitats and biotopes may be common in some characteristics on a certain level of detail and may thus be classified as abstract types: e.g. as woodland, pastures, heathland – referring to their vegetation structure - or as running waters, limestone rocks or sand dunes - referring to abiotic features - but also as wintering areas, nesting areas or wandering corridors etc. - referring to relevant phases for the life-cycle of a certain species or ecological guild. These typological classes are usually organised in classification systems (e.g. EUNIS habitat classification).

Title:

habitat vegetation

Definition:

List of vegetation types which constitute a certain habitat.

Description:

The cover of plants may be common in some characteristics on a certain level of detail and may thus be classified by vegetation science as abstract types.

E.g. vegetation may be classified as Tundra or Mediterranean Deciduous Forests – referring to their structure and their bio-geographic formations - or as Nordic vegetation type 5141 Koeleria glauca-Typ or Ranunculetum fluitantis - referring to their floristic composition - or as chamaephytes or hemi-cryptophytes - referring to structural traits etc.

Many vegetation type classification systems exist all over Europe. Some of these systems have a deep hierarchical structure. Therefore it is recommended to register the vegetation type scheme which was used.
