Reference material - German Soil Map 1:200,000 ESRI Shape to INSPIRE GML with FME

  • 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.

At BGR, we tested to transform an example sheet of our ESRI shape files of the German Soil Map 1:200,000 into INSPIRE-conformant GML using FME. The zip file includes a detailed description of the workflow and our input- and output data. We provide this as reference material for others who try to transform their data.

We are looking forward to getting your  feedback! (
