              Hi Leonor,

              first off, any reason why you're working with the 3.0 version of the EF schema instead of the 4.0? I forget which errors were fixed between these versions, but I know some were, so 4.0 will serve you better (structure is the same, just errors that were made in the conversion from UML to XSD sorted)

              I tried to validate some EF data, seems to work. Maybe you want to take a look at the example set I've put out on my GitHub, I did a simple consistent set of air quality stations (but not using the AQD extension so as not to confuse folks), together with a description, available at:

              https://github.com/DataCoveEU/INSPIRE_EF

              Hi Leonor,

              did you put the gml application schema in the <xsi:schemaLocation>?  The ETF is not able to 'see' the gml application schema unless you explicitly mention it in the <xsi:schemaLocation> and therefore is not able to find the declaration of element 'gml:FeatureCollection' .

              Add the following value pair to the <xsi:schemaLocation> and the error should disappear :

              "http://www.opengis.net/gml/3.2 http://schemas.opengis.net/gml/3.2.1/gml.xsd"

              Hope this helps,

              Stefania

              Hello Stefania,

               

              Thank you for your help.

              We did what you recomended but if we introduce the pair inside  the writer FME the GML passes in INSPIRE Validator, but doesn't write/generates  the points of the geometry.

              What do you recommend?

               

              Best regards,

              Leonor Queiroz.

              Hi Leonor,

              I'd keep it simple.

              First off : I would produce the GML file without introducing the gml namespace /schema pair inside the FME writer

              Then, operate on the so-produced file.

              Two options:

              option 1: you could edit the file with an XML editor (e.g. Notepad ++) and add the required string in the <xsi:schemaLocation>

              option 2:  you could modify the FME workflow. For example: Read the GML file already produced with a text reader, use a StringReplacer to modify the  <xsi:schemaLocation> , send the output to a text file (saving it with .gml extension) .

              Of course there could be other ways, but the above should work fine.

              Hope this helps,

              Stefania

              Hi Kieran,

              cool idea!

              Some counter questions:

              • What service are you using to serve the data? Especially as you're dealing with SensorStuff, you may wanna look at the OGC SensorThings API (STA). We've mostly sorted the INSPIRE alignment issues, for details, see: https://github.com/DataCoveEU/SensorThings
              • Observation Type: good question! I get utilizing a coverage model to nicely pull in all lanes, but would almost recommend doing a separate specialization for this as in the profile observation the FoI is constrained to the vertical. This also leads to a further question:
              • What is your FeatureOfInterest (FoI)? I'd be assuming that at some level, the FoI should be at least linked to a TN dataset. I'm not familiar enough with the road specialization of TN, are the lanes modeled? 

              While I haven't come across this level of data within INSPIRE yet (but does make total sense for EF :) ), I do know that the City of Hamburg is working in this direction, and will be utilizing STA, so maybe you could cooperate with them?

              :)

              Hi Kathi,

              Yes, for the road example the 'profile' would be in horizontal plane, rather than the vertical.  On this topic, do the Technical Guidelines insist the profile shall be vertical?

              The FoI would be a section of road across all lanes of the road.  The sensor (e.g. a camera) would capture an image of this FoI and processing algorithms count unique vehicles.  This is an example, there are other ways this could be done - including humans with a clipboard!

              Discussing this topic with the UK transport data community, whilst they are very familiar with core transport data standards such as NeTEx, DATEXII and SIRI, there seems to be a lack of awareness of generic O&M standards.  When the effects of transport (e.g. air quality, noise) are being monitored alongside the transport itself, it makes sense that common patterns for observations are used.  In particular not trying to load all the observation information into a metadata record.

            • Katharina SCHLEIDT

              By Katharina SCHLEIDT

              Hi Nathalie,

              pertaining to the scope, to my feeling the GNSS stations are in scope. I've copied in Article 4 § 1 for your reference below.

              As for the correct INSPIRE Theme, while I'd need a bit more information on what exactly is being monitored by the GNSS stations, I'm fairly sure that Environmental Monitoring Facilities is the correct theme.

              :)
