Streamlining PRTR data provision for INSPIRE and eReporting duties

Marco Hohmann, Thore Fechner and Simon Jirka

(Submission #171)


In recent years, we have seen a lively discussion surrounding the streamlining potential for data provision in the context of the INSPIRE directive and existing eReporting duties. In this talk, we would like to contribute to this discussion. We showcase the ideas, steps, and developments undertaken by Germany's Federal Environmental Agency (Umweltbundesamt) regarding Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (E-PRTR) data. The talk outlines the established processing pipeline and its components that are used for the INSPIRE and E-PRTR eReporting duties. Overall, the workflow is inspired by the existing OGC SOS based AQD eReporting to the EEA. By adopting the SOS pattern, the potential future automated harvesting of PRTR data to the EEA is possible. Furthermore, we can support the INSPIRE reporting duties by using the same processing pipeline that feeds the respective data models. Finally, we use the INSPIRE-ID to link between both INSPIRE and E-PRTR data models to facilitate one coherent view on the emitted pollutants and their origins. This allows us to easily visualise and analyse the reported data in (Web) GIS applications in the future.
