    Hi all, Today I realized that there is not available a XSD file for the LandCoverExtension schema. This schema was designed in LC specifications to provide bio-physical parameters describing LCUntis. Maybe was it considered much...

      Hi Julian,

      Only the data models that are included in the Implementation Rules have been endorsed. See here

      The LandCoverExtension schema - being included in the Technical Guidance - should be found here: 

      http://inspire.ec.europa.eu/draft-schemas/

      Strangely enough, it seems to be missing from the draft schema repository too. Can anyone help me and Julian on this one?

      Best regards,

      Lena

    Out of interest why did you choose deegree to do the WFS and GeoServer to do the WMS?  Why not GeoServer for WFS and WMS or deegree for WMS and WFS?  view reply

      Hi James,

      I was involved in the setup of test View and Download services for a Land Cover dataset coming from transformation of CLC 2006 data. Please find links to WFS and WMS serving this LC GML dataset I uploaded on the TC.

      Both WFS and WMS are created by means of deegree software.

      In my case I didn't have to struggle with WMS, conversely I had to edit the SQL feature store configuration file automatically created by deegree (i.e. manually add many missing pieces sad)  to get conformity of WFS served features to LC DS (i.e. to get GML dataset served by the WFS successfully pass schema as well as schematron validation in the eENVplus Validation Service).

      Don't know if this is related to the inability to get your WMS, but I noticed that your WFS dataset does not pass validation - not even against LC schema. For example mandatory elements beginLifespanVersion and mosaic are missing (maybe you have the elements in your DB but they’re empty? I experienced that in this case deegree may not include them in WFS response)

      I also tried Geoserver to setup WMS and WFS, but I was not able to create a WFS serving gml:surface/patches/polygonPatches geometries (in accordance to LC constraint on geometries). Conversely a service could be created changing geometry encoding to MultiSurface (solution not conformant to IR).

      Hope this helps

      Hi Stefania,

      Don't know if this is related to the inability to get your WMS, but I noticed that your WFS dataset does not pass validation - not even against LC schema.

      My comments about experiences of  suitability of software for providing complex feature WFS  were more general. Neither my WFS mentioned are to do with LC, so that's probably why they aren't schema valid.

      My comment about deegree was not so much about schema validity, but with the ability to query the service, I mean, there's no point in being able to create a schema valid service, if people can't then query the service to return meaningful results.

      Hi, I have not been involved with implementation of LC in the Netherlands, but would like to add some general comments. For a topic as land cover to serve it as WMS may be a challenge for Quality of Service (capacity and responsiveness, common practice to resolve this is to put safe scaledenominators, which is a bad practice from usability). In stead I would recommend to use WMTS. There are several products available that can serve WMTS (on top of any WMS backend). For example Mapcache, GeoWebCache and Mapproxy. Mapproxy has an interesting additional feature, it can serve WMS from a WMTS backend by stitching tiles on the fly.
