Revision of the INSPIRE code lists and their consequences for the MIG process

Matthias Dorn

(Submission #107)


Geoscientific work with the code lists in INSPIRE is hardly possible just on the basis of the data specifi-cations alone, because the structures of the code lists can only be derived from the data specifications with difficulty. Thus, the code lists were downloaded from the EU server in JSON format, transformed and imported into mind maps, and through this measure their hierarchy and the interrelationships of the terms became apparent. The transformation process is described. An analysis of the code lists of the application schema Geology showed deficiencies. For example, these deficiencies included significant differences in the degree of structuring, faulty assignment of terms, the lack of various geoscientific sub-areas within the respective themes, as well as terms with-out parent" and subordinate "children". The deficiencies were structurally rectified through a reordering of the mind maps and fed into the MIG process moderated by the EU for this purpose. This is where they are currently being discussed. In the LBEG we map to the revised code lists, if these have only been restructured. If the code lists have been supplemented with new terms, then initially we map to the existing code lists. If the supplements should be accepted by the EU, then in the first case no additional activities would have to occur, how-ever in the second case we would have to remap.
