    Johanna Ott added a new discussion topic TN-Air: Should AerodromeNode be a TransportNode or a TransportPoint
    When validating TN-Air data containing AerodromeNodes, the ETF validator detects an error mentioning that they should be connected to a TransportLink. This is correct as an AerodromeNode is a TransportNode and is therefore not allowed to exist as...

    Dominique LAURENT added a new discussion topic Railway Transport Network: what about velo-rail?
    In IGN, we have data about RailwayLinks used for "velo-rail" or "bicycle-rail" in English., i.e. railway links used for leisure . There is no value in any of the  INSPIRE codelists to document this type of...

      The question is: Do we miss those requirements while reading the document mentioned above or do they exist somewhere else?

      And what do you recommend, if not?

    Dear Dominique, We have implemented the first version at BKG (single geometry and multiple values of the attribute). We don’t think that it would be wise to provide the geometry up to 6 times. The data is already big enough. Furthermore, we... view reply

    Dominique LAURENT added a new discussion topic nationalLevel of administrative boundaries

      Dear Dominique,

      We have implemented the first version at BKG (single geometry and multiple values of the attribute). We don’t think that it would be wise to provide the geometry up to 6 times. The data is already big enough. Furthermore, we would have to find a procedure to create new (additional) inspireId, because our national data source is single geometry. So, our INSPIRE data wouldn’t have an easy link to the original data.

      Concerning user-friendliness, after all it’s INSPIRE – and INSPIRE is always complex (also the second option).

      Best regards,

      Marcus Brühl (BKG)

      Dear Dominique and all,

      I was a member of the expert group for the theme administrative units. And I can only confirm what Marcus said.

      In the first version of the data specification there was only option one. Option two came in because there were countries that had multiple geometries in their existing national data and did not feel able to provide the data according to option one. But in this case it is a lot more difficult to keep the geometries of the different layers consistent - you must make shure that you have identical geometries up to 6 times!  I would have liked to have only option one.

      Best regards

      Ulrich
