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:

Description: Romanian Protected Sites

This download service successfully passes the EC tests at the INSPIRE Geoportal and served dataset validates both against PS application schema requirements and PS schematron rules using the eENVplus Validation Service.

Software tool: SnowFlake GoPublisher

WFS endpoint:

http://inspire.biodiversity.ro/WFS/RO_ENV_PS/wfs?

WFS GetFeature example:

http://inspire.biodiversity.ro/WFS/RO_ENV_PS/wfs?service=WFS&version=2.0.0&request=GetFeature&typename=ps:ProtectedSite&count=10

WFS stored query example:

http://inspire.biodiversity.ro/WFS/RO_ENV_PS/wfs?service=wfs&version=2.0.0&request=GetFeature&typename=ps:ProtectedSite&featureid=RO_ENV_PADS_psPSRef_RONPA0351

 

Bio-geographical regions data theme

Example 1:

Description:

Find below two different examples of Download Services for the same Bio-geographical regions pan-european dataset respectively created using deegree and GeoServer software .

They were developed in the framework of a feasibility study commissioned by the European Environment Agency aiming to assess to what extent the most used software tools were able to provide and consume INSPIRE conformant data through View and Download services. Focus was given on validation and usability of served data in GIS environment more than on validation of services. These download services are meant for test purposes, no relevant metadata has been created and therefore has not been tested with EC tests at the INSPIRE Geoportal . The served datasets validate both against BR application schema and GML Specification requirements.

deegree_WFS

 Software tool: deegree (v.3.3.18)

WFS endpoint: http://cloud.epsilon-italia.it:8085/deegree-webservices-3.3.18/services/EEA_BR_WFS?

WFS GetFeature example:

http://cloud.epsilon-italia.it:8085/deegree-webservices-3.3.18/services/EEA_BR_WFS?service=WFS&version=2.0.0&request=GetFeature&typeNames=br:Bio-geographicalRegion

 

GeoServer_WFS

Software tool: GeoServer (v.2.8)

WFS endpoint: http://cloud.epsilon-italia.it:8083/geoserver/ows?

WFS GetFeature example:

http://cloud.epsilon-italia.it:8083/geoserver/ows?service=WFS&version=2.0.0&request=GetFeature&typeNames=br:Bio-geographicalRegion
