GeologicHistory - relationship

  • General

    The INSPIRE Community Forum is now part of the INSPIRE helpdesk system, based on GitHub (, so please start there any new discussions.

    The current platform will remain available in read only mode in its current form and URL address until 31/01/2021, then its content will be archived and then published in a different URL which will be announced when it becomes available.


In the GeoSciML 3.2 Encoding Cookbook for Inspire WFS Services (a great help!) it is stated on page 9 that the relationship shall be encoded with a value from a vocabulary, such as the one under development by the CGI.

So far I can't find any vocabulary for this by CGI, does anyone know the status of this?

I saw that BGS was using


in one of their WFS's, which seems lika a good solution for now. We will use this instead of making up our own...
