    domainExtent vs gml:boundedBy in the group Elevation, Ortho & Grids

    Given that the purpose (within the INSPIRE specification) of the ISO 19123 domainExtent attribute is to describe the spatial extent of the domain, why not implement it with gml:boundedBy? As it stands, the feature should have both a gml:boundedBy (from GML good practice) and an inspire/ISO domain...

    GML attributes "owns" in the group Topo & Cadastre, Reference Data

    It seems that in GML files, when an attribute is voidable in the conceptual UML schema, it creates in the physical GML schema, in addition to the nilReason, an element called "owns" that is a boolean. We don't understand what is the interest of this element and how it should be fill...

    gml:id, gml:identifier and the InspireID – Clarifications and Best Practices in the group Topo & Cadastre, Reference Data

    Many of us who create INSPIRE GML, hit some common challenges around identifying features. In part, these come from technical requirements of XML/GML, and in part they come from INSPIRE requirements. An INSPIRE feature will generally have three properties that identify objects, each with a dif...
