Dear All,

I would like to bring up a query with regards to the harmonisation process of statistical data in order to be INSPIRE compliant.

By statistical data, I mean the statistical information that is reported in excel workbook on EIONET concerning the noise exposure data for each noise source as per Directive 2002/49/EC (END). This includes the estimated number of people exposed to Lden and Lnight noise indicators for each of the 5dB noise contour bands from the different sources for each respective strategic noise map.

I would like to hear from other countries how member states are required to produce the statistical information according to the INSPIRE Directive. Is there a way how to incorporate such data in the spatial datasets (maybe an attribute to the shapefiles?)

Any replies are greatly appreciated

Best Regards,
