Examples of INSPIRE Download Services for the data themes in the Biodiversity and Management Areas Cluster: Revision

This page aims to provide examples of INSPIRE Download services for INSPIRE conformant data relevant to the themes addressed by the cluster.

It is meant to be a ‘read-only’ page, should you want to comment or to provide other implementation examples, please open a discussion topic or email the facilitator.

 

Protected Sites data theme

Example 1 (from the INSPIRE  Geoportal):

Description: Maltese WFS serving harmonised Common Database on Designated Areas (CDDA) Protected Sites

WFS GetFeature example:

https://msdi.data.gov.mt/deegree/services/ps_CDDArea?request=GetFeature&Language=eng&service=WFS&version=2.0.0&count=10&typeNames=ps:ProtectedSite

Example 2:

Description: Finnish Protected Site according to the INSPIRE Protected Sites application schema.

WFS + Atom feed available. Both are still BETA versions.

Software tool: GeoServer

WFS GetCapabilities:
