    Environmental reporting is one of the main use cases behind the design of INSPIRE Directive and the INSPIRE data specifications take into account several reporting requirements. In the framework of a modernization and streamlining of...

      INSPIRE-based eReporting in Italy: CDDA 2018 delivery

      By Dirk HINTERLANG

      I have some serious objections to establish the parallel data provision in terms of a "Linked Approach" within or connected to the theme Protected Sites.

      The DS for PS had foreseen an extension for the delivery of CDDA data using the "full profile", therefore the INSPIRE-community should urgently claim for the re-establishment of a data model extension to serve this use case.
      The same is true of a Natura2000-extension, clipped out of an early version of the DS, and yet waiting to be replaced by a revised extension.

      Parallel data provision via a "linked approach" leads us away from INSPIRE and thus lacks any legal obligation for the Member States.

      Agreed!

      Somehow sad that while half the information (basic protected sites) will be made generally available via INSPIRE, the details (CDDA) remain locked within European silos

      Not how I'd hoped INSPIRE would turn out :)

    Dear Enrico, it is a good encoding to provide codelist extension. Thank you for providing. So in your case an  extended value for the 'zoneType' field would be encoded as e.g.... view reply

    Is this a good solution for expanding codelists? For example http://daten-hamburg.de/inspire/codelist/ZoneTypeCode_Extension.xml. I got the idea from https://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/xml/codelists/.

    Hi all, Indeed the second example provided is fine, just that it has a major problem, usability: With what software it is possible to view such data ? Second problem is that the service indicated is not providing data based on an... view reply

    Hi Iurie, I choose the the first example, because it uses RectifiedGridCoverage, which you mentioned. There are other FMI services with other coverage types with inlined rangeSet, such as... view reply

    Hi , From the example provided by Ilkka, the rangeSet (the actual data of the grid) is provided trough a file reference. Therefore the rectifiedGridCoverage data is not served by the... view reply

    Hi Iurie, As Kathi already mentioned, providing INSPIRE coverage data is possible via WFS, such services have been in existence for years. Now that the INSPIRE WCS Download Service guidelines are in place, this is however probably no... view reply

    The solution to serve the grid in a WCS and the rest of the element in a WFS does not allow a user to download the dataset. I'm not sure where that suggestion comes from though,  In a WCS  the GetCoverage response is multi-part so... view reply

    Not so good, but at least some elements can be encoded in the rangeType element. I am not sure how to use swe:Category and not to sure how to declare a swe:CodeSpace in order to be clear that the value 1 represent that the species is... view reply

    I suppose it depends on what you mean by consume, certainly there are clients that can consume WCS 2.0 services, but if you want to query the services, especially the GeoSciML then you are looking at writing your own, that's what we did as... view reply

    Hi Iurie, first off, as gml coverages are also gml featureTypes, one could provide them via WFS. However, as the offering concept is not available from a WFS, it would be hard for a data user to know what coverage featureTypes are available (only... view reply
