Delivering INSPIRE data efficiently with ATOM feeds

Ken Bragg and Dean Hintz

(Submission #296)


ATOM feeds give governments and mapping agencies a powerful way to share frequently updated data. A simpler alternative to OGC services, this type of feed can be used to comply with INSPIRE data sharing requirements in a very accessible way. Providing users with the ability to subscribe, ATOM feeds send notifications when new data is available. A number of organizations are having success with this pragmatic, efficient approach.

Through a real-world example from Geodatastyrelsen (GST), the Danish Geodata Agency, this presentation will discuss how ATOM based services can be used to deliver INSPIRE data. GST is the state owned agency responsible for surveying, mapping, and land registering Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands. The agency’s published cadastral data includes 2.4 million parcels and 45 million features, for 9033 districts, with changes in 20-100 districts per day. An ATOM feed is used to share INSPIRE datasets and notify users when updates are available for a specified area.

The following topics will be covered in this session:

- Spatial Data Infrastructure: database design and structure for INSPIRE data production

- Workflow Automation: creation of XML documents to define the ATOM service, and generation of predefined ZIP files of INSPIRE GML by the schema driven GML export

- ATOM Feed Set-up: how to build an ATOM feed

- Internal Update Processes: updates driven by changes to ATOM download datasets

Attendees will learn how ATOM based services can be used as an efficient, simple option to comply with INSPIRE data sharing requirements.
