INSPIRE identifier
-- Definition --
External object identifier of the spatial object.
-- Description --
An external object identifier is a unique object identifier published by the responsible body, which may be used by external applications to reference the spatial object. The identifier is an identifier of the spatial object, not an identifier of the real-world phenomenon.
-- Definition --

su-vector:tesselation
-- Definition --
The immediately lower statistical tessellation.
su-vector:upper
-- Definition --
The immediately upper statistical tessellation.
su-vector:lower
-- Name --
Vector statistical unit
-- Definition --
Statistical unit represented as a vector geometry (point, line or surface).
-- Name --
INSPIRE identifier
-- Definition --
External object identifier of the spatial object.
-- Description --
An external object identifier is a unique object identifier published by the responsible body, which may be used by external applications to reference the spatial object. The identifier is an identifier of the spatial object, not an identifier of the real-world phenomenon.
-- Name --
Thematic identifier
-- Definition --
Descriptive unique object identifier applied to spatial objects in a defined information theme.
-- Description --
Some statistical units may be assigned multiple thematic identifiers.
EXAMPLE: NUTS codes are thematic identifiers.
-- Name --
Country
-- Definition --
The code of the country the object belongs to.
technicalGuidance
-- Name --
Geographical name
-- Definition --

End lifespan version
-- Definition --
Date and time at which this version of the spatial object was superseded or retired in the spatial data set.
-- Name --
Validity period
-- Definition --
The period when the statistical unit is supposed to be preferably used and not.
-- Name --
Reference period
-- Definition --
The period when the data is supposed to give a picture of the territorial division in statistical units.
-- Name --
Geometries
-- Definition --
Geometrical representations of the vector statistical unit.
-- Definition --
All the evolutions the statistical unit has encountered.
su-vector:units
-- Name --
Vector statistical unit geometry
-- Definition --
A geometrical representation for vector statistical units.
-- Description --
Vector statistical units can have several representations depending on the context they are used for. It is adviced to produce at least one reference geometry.
EXAMPLE1: A vector statistical units may be represented both by an area and a point geometry. Such point can be the center of gravity or a label location.
EXAMPLE2: For mapping, different generalised representations of vector statistical units are required. These geometries depend on the visualisation scale.
