The Luxembourgish Cadastre (Administration du Cadastre et de la Topographie – ACT) is responsible for the INSPIRE spatial data infrastructure for Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. In this presentation, we explain the lessons learned from putting in place INSPIRE coverage data and services for datasets belonging to the orthoimagery and elevation data themes. We outline our choices for coverage representations based on the options provided by the technical guidance documents, taking into account practical usage needs and the ongoing discussion on further alignment with GMLCOV / CIS1.1. We demonstrate the flexibility offered by FME for reading, processing, and writing coverage data in many different formats. We also make an analysis of options for an interoperable download service: ATOM/OpenSearch or WCS 2.0 and evaluate options such as GeoServer and MapServer for realising an INSPIRE-conform WCS. Finally, we show how we use FME to orchestrate an automated publication workflow for processing raster data, (re)configuring a conform view and download service, updating the dataset and service metadata, and testing conformity of the resulting dataset and services. This automation has largely contributed to improving the consistency and overall quality of the spatial data infrastructure.
