    Uffe LARSEN added a new discussion topic recommended symbol for building raw materials
    Hi I am fiddling with a view service for sand and gravel deposits and I wonder which symbol to use. Do you know of any recommendations ?  In the old versions of the data specification the symbol for “Building raw materials,...

      Hi Jouni,

      Are you sure you are looking at the latest version (v3.0) of the specification? In this version there aren't any duplicated titles that I can see but section 11.3.1 'Styles for the layer MR.Mine' and section 11.3.2.10 '...building raw materials, dimension stones' both say 'To be provided'.

      Hi John!

      You rise up another question - we don't have any styles for Mines - 11.3.1 'Styles for the layer MR.Mine' - there is a text as you said 'To be provided'. These styles will be need to build up Minerals4EU services!

      What if your data isn't a point but a polygon, is the intention that the polygon has some repeated pattern of purple hexagons?

      Secondly is there any recommended RGB value for purple; is it one of the following (for example):

      Hi Jouni,

      Thank you for your quick reply.

      1.  When I read throug the DS p32, the attribute shape is GM_object and when I refer on the Statistical unit theme, we also have GM-Object and we use polygons.

      2.My question remain valid when the objects are points . Do I have to add my earthresource attributes to the 8 points representing the sand extraction areas?

      Thank you

      Hi Pierre,

      I think your sand extraction polygons are strictly MiningFeatureOccurrences and you are right to say they can be polygons as the geometry is GM_Object. The EarthResourceDimension refers to the geometry of the EarthResource that the MiningActivity is applied to, eg the extent of the sand body being worked. It is not the geometry of the pits working the sand body. So if you have eight pits working the same sand body then the EarthResourceDimension will be the same for each of them.

      Hi,

      1.I shall replace my polygons by points, so I will be able to use the symbology proposed in the portrayal chapter.

      2. From the uml scheme, I understand that my earthresource inherits an Inspire ID from the geologic feature, and this Inspire ID will be also an attribute that will be added to each mine. Is that right?

      Thank you

    Hi all, I agree, topsoil should be naturalUnconsolidatedMaterial. Otherwise I think your proposal makes sense. But it may have some implications on the Lithology style as it is represented  in the GE specification (page 110, 11.3.1).... view reply

    John LAXTON replied on the discussion topic Moved to Geology group: LithologyValue - terms with no parent
    Hi Tilman, I think that sounds a good proposal. My only reservation would be over topsoil which isn't really an anthropogenic material - this might be better with naturalUnconsolidateMaterial as a parent. John view reply

      When setting up the registry service, are you handling extensions to the Inspire code lists in this registry? Sweden would like to extend the code list SoliDerivedObjectParameterNameValue but are not clear on how this should be managed within Inspire.

      Interested to hear if you have any thoughts on this.

    • Einar EBERHARDT

      By Einar EBERHARDT

      Yes, codeists are to be handled in a regsitry (service). How this works is not competely clear to me, especially the reference from the data file to single registry entries. After some technical problems, we start our registry test end of April.

      Because extensions in the ...ParameterNameValues could produce several names for similar parameters, we possibly could gather parameters here in the forum and try to implement them in one registry only. I will try to open a new thread about this.

      According to the INSPIRE Directive and the Polish transposition of it (Spatial Information Infrastructure Act) the Polish Geological Survey is not legally responsible for implementation of the Soil Data Specification. The unit obligated by the law to provide the soil data is the Head Office of Geodesy and Cartography.

      However Polish Geological Survey hold the data that can serve as an information about soil parent material (digital lithologic and especially geological compilations in various scales) and can be useful in delineating or verifying soil types and properties. We are engaged in activities regarding soils (e.g. EGS SDTF’s works) and so we consider having current information about the state of soil data implementation in Europe to be important.

      Dear Colleges.

      To be able to use the INSPIRE/CGI code lists in an efficient way I need to implement them in our national SVN Enterprise Architect register. I have implemented the Geology core models into our Norwegian SVN-register along with the National model elements as subtypes to be able to produce revised Norwegian feature catalogues and product specifications.

      The latest UML models in the INSPIRE site, Geology.xsd, is dated 2012-09-03, and do not contain any code values in the code lists. Will the INSPIRE data specification site be updated in the near future with the new code list from the CGI work, or have any of you made a EA-implementation code lists based on the INSPIRE register?  

      Best regards

      Per
