CityGML & INSPIRE GML for buildings


Dear All,

I have question/suggestion connected with CityGML & INSPIRE GML:

Some countries thinks about 3D city modelling. In Europe there is some examples of using CityGML for 3D city. In the future, maybe CityGML would be good idea for the building extended 3D INSPIRE schema? There is a lot of advantages of this approach, e.g. all attributes demanded by INSPIRE can be included into CityGml using Generic Objects and Attributes or Application Domain Extensions (ADE), CityGML is  a good format for data exchange and it's continuously developed. Besides, if countries create and update buildings in CityGML, in the same time they can satisfy the conditions required by INSPIRE.
