      Dear Pieter,

      As far as I know, there isn't any place where to obtain INSPIRE SLDs. Such a repository would certainly be useful. 

      Could you please share the ELU SLD file here at the TC for others to re-use if you went about to make one yourself?

      A project that I'm involved in are producing SLDs for PLU (HILUCS, HSRCL). I'll share the files at the TC as soon as I have the green light to do so.

      Dear Pieter, all,

      I'd like to share the SLD files we've produced for the HILUCS and HSRCL code list values for the provision of the regional land use plans in Finland. The HSRCL file is relevant only for planned LU.

       SLD HILCUS file

       SLD HSRCL file

       Please re-use these and share your examples as you may need to develop these further.

      PS. It would be interesting if you could share your final HALE mappings as well Pieter.

      Dear Lena and all,

      I have uploaded our Hale project here.

      And I also uploaded an adjusted SLD that works with the output of our transformation.

      It looks like below:

      In the WFS 2.0 Specification joined queries are foreseen to handle this issue ( WFS 2.0 conformance classes "Standard Joins", "Spatial Joins", and "Temporal Joins"). I had a discussion about this topic with Thorsten Reiz last week. He mentioned that one problem is that the specification of the joined query is not fully implemented in existing webservice technologies like Deegree and Geoserver. I have no practical experience on joined queries yet but will do some testing in the next weeks especially for the DS SpeciesDistribution | Land Cover | LandUse | Biotop and Habitat.

      There is a helpful discussion about the implementation of joined queries available in the degree github: https://github.com/deegree/deegree3/issues/666
      For Geoserver see: https://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/132229/cql-filter-that-joins-two-feature-types-in-wfs

      The second problem we discuss for a long time with the domain experts on LC is, that the relation between the Dataset and the Dataunit is modelled in different ways. In most of the DS (Species Distribution | Habitat and Biotops | Land Use) the relation is established using an association which is traversable in both directions and encoded byReference (xlink:href). For Land Cover the relation is modelled as an aggregation – which ends in a different encoding (inline) and lead to a different handling of the WFS requests. Requesting a LandCoverDataset will response with one large LandCoverDataset instance in which all according LandCoverUnits are nested. I think this is not really a practicable approach. It is like downloading a predefined dataset from an AtomFeed – and that’s not the intention of providing data via WFS. A change request is submitted (i think was submitted by spain) to change the relation to an association and harmonise the DS.

      My pracitcal understanding to request WFS providing DS with a Dataset | Dataunit relation is that I first request all available Datasets. In a second request I select all DatasetUnits from the dataset of interest (for example article reporting 2013) using a filter on the association role referencing the specific dataset. To illustrate this approach and test results according the joined query to provide both feature types in one request I will come back as soon as testing is finished.

      Hi Peter.

      I do hope that what you spotted will not take ages to be fixed with new legislation (and meanwhile interoperability can be lost), rather it could suggest the adoption of an agile procedure (agreed by the community of implementers and endorsed by MIG) enabling the (properly documented) schemas updating in almost real time!

    • Michael LUTZ

      Dear Peter, all,

      I just checked the IRs, and the error is indeed also present there. So to be fully consistent, we would need to even change the legal act. But maybe this can be done as part of the currently planned amendment/corrigendum of the data interoprability IRs. If agreed by the community (and subsequently) the MIG, we can probably start making the changes in the model, TG and schemas, even before the legal process has been completed.

      But, before proceeding with such a change to the schema, since it would not be backwards-compatible (i.e. would break existing implementations)  I would also like to know the impact, i.e. how many implementations already exist in MS using the current schema (with the typo). LU seems  to be very "popular" (judging from the number of data sets in the geoportal), but I am not sure how many of these are already using the INSPIRE schema.

      Dear Peter, all,

      Thank you for reporting this error. I hope that this apparent error in the schema can be fixed asap, even though fixing the error in the IR and the TG will take more time.

      FYI: I have looked and asked for PLU schema implementations, but I haven't come across any so far. I plan to continue looking during the INSPIRE Conference. 

      However, I cannot 100% confirm that implementations don't already exist. To be really sure about the implications I guess we'd need to ask the INSPIRE contact points to ask data providers in the LU theme.
