Eric van Capelleveen, Pieter Meijer and Sandra van Wijngaarden

(Submission #366)


The DSO-programme in The Netherlands is developing a system of ICT facilities to publish all current spatial and environmental regulations linked to the areas where they are valid.

We will introduce you to the origin of the programme, its aim to facilitate the new integral spatial legislation in the Netherlands as well as the components of the system and its requirements. We will also take you trhough the process and outcome of harmonising the way regulations are composed, integrated with vector based areas where rules apply. Four layers of government are participating in the legislation and interrelations had to modelled in de STOP-TPOD standard (XML/GML). We will address the aspect of meeting legal requirements such as INSPIRE regulations, presentation in legal and service environments, methods of annotation, modelling legal rules and applying areas and the mechanisms of processing separate changes and consolidation of rules and regulations. We will show live examples where these principles are implemented and discuss the dilemma’s encountered by applying INSPIRE themes and user requirements.
