Call for implementation examples

Dear all,

I would like to invite those of you who have produced harmonised datasets according to the LC or LU application schemas to share your experiences, your draft GMLs or links to network services from which the harmonised data is available. No reason to wait for your implementations to be absolutely perfect before sharing them. By posting issues and draft implementations we can help you with getting your possible issues solved and this way you can also help others in understanding how to do the job!

Once shared, I will add them to the list of implementation examples.

FYI, examples already provided:

Examples of view and download services for harmonised LC and LU data

Transformation rules for Corine Land Cover (CLC) and Urban Atlas (UA) according to INSPIRE Land Cover theme. Find the project report and the CLC and UA example GMLs, Matching tables for CLC and UA and the schematron file here

    This is our Planned Land Use Map: The spatial extensión is the region "Comunidad de Madrid" in Spain. A sort explanation about it:

    This viewer contains each Plan of the approved urban plans, sometimes overlaping. This provides information about the lineage fo the planned urban use of each parcel. Besides that, we offer until 159 planned urban data of each parcel. We think that Planed Land y much more then the Use, and we have added another data planned, like building height, kind of building, legal land type, forbidden uses, etc.

    Our Planned Land Use, called Sistema de Información Territorial "SIT" combines Planned Land Use, acording to INSPIRE, and Addresses, Administrative Units, Cadastral parcels, Hydrography, flooded areas, Protected Sites, Orthoimagery, Mineral Resources and Species Distribution.

    A big thanks to all of who has provided links to INSPIRE view and download services in the LC and LU themes over the last few months. This Thematic Cluster page has now been updated.

    I'm open to add more links to the page any time, of course ;)
