    SDMX data DSD files need to be enhanced to comply with INSPIRE requirements. For the CENCUS2021 grid the DSD files as currently defined can be obtained in two ways: Human way: https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/sdmxregistry/ + CENSUS_GRID_2021 in the... view reply

    Hi! I have a question regarding the PD technical guidelines. In StatisticalDistribution there is measurementUnit, that is type UnitOfMeasure. The package UnitOfMeasure is refering to ISO 19103, but I don't find this UnitOfMeasure (see...

    Regarding the PD:StatisticalDistribution: this is actually the only featureType in the model but according to the model, its geometry is the geometry of the whole distribution. This means that if you supply data for the whole country, the outer... view reply

    Mirosław MIGACZ replied on the discussion topic Layer names in view services for Population distribution?
    Hello Jerker! My guess would be that the lack of a layer name for PD is the result of the PD theme not carrying geometry itself but deriving it from the SU (statistical units) theme. Therefore a valid geographical reference for PD data would be a... view reply

    Hello, we are trying to configure INSPIRE compliant view services for population distribution (population in 1 x 1 km grids) and we are struggeling to understand the naming conventions to be used for the layers in the service. When we validate our...

      Hi!

      we also use our own layer naming, imitating the naming of the other themes: PD.StatisticalDistribution 

      We have also asked our national contact person (validator/JRC) to give feedback to the JRC (errors in validator when layer naming not defined)

      For the health theme we use the HH.HealthStatisticalData layer.

      Regarding the PD:StatisticalDistribution: this is actually the only featureType in the model but according to the model, its geometry is the geometry of the whole distribution. This means that if you supply data for the whole country, the outer country boundary should be the only geometry provided for the StatisticalDistribution featureType, regardless of the number of values distributed.

      It's the biggest cognitive problem with the PD model since the very beginning and JRC is aware of it (it has been repeatedly reported), however no solution has been produced to date.

      Following up on Pieter's comment, I think it's a good idea to use your own naming convention for PD. As mentioned before - PD initially has been designed as a theme without geometry, so this might be the reason for not having an official layer name.

    Hi Kathi, Anders Anders, I guess you are correct in thinking about two possible options. And I can imagine that both pass the validator, cause when we had our GMLs made for us, we were told that the IDs have to be URLs. That's probably what... view reply
