Do parameter list main entries make sense for all parameter lists in DS Soil?


The data specification soil does not define many parameters and codelists with valid values for them (if necessary). Extensions to the parameter lists ProfileElementParameterNameValue, SoilDerivedObjectParameterNameValue, SoilProfileParameterNameValue and SoilSiteParameterNameValue and the codelists have to be made by the data provider.

Is the similar structure of all parameter lists with the first level entries chemicalParameter, biologicalParameter, physicalParameter reasonable also for SoilProfile and SoilSite? Are we happy with having soil colour as “soiPhysicalParameter”? Do other main categories miss here?
