Good practise GML example for species distribution?

  • 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.


A data provider in Finland is looking for good examples to follow for the implementation of the Species Distribution (SD) application schema. Looking into the INSPIRE Geoportal, I was happy to see that for example Denmark, Luxembourg and Austria have already provided harmonised SD datasets in GML/XML format (EPSG:3035).

I wonder: Which of these implementation examples would you recommend to follow? Or is it impossible to say as there isn't a test available for SD in the ETF Validator yet?
