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

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.

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.
