Call for participation for the INSPIRE MIG temporary sub-group on registers and registries

Details

A call for participation for the INSPIRE MIG temporary sub-group on registers and registries (addressing MIWP-6 of the maintenance and implementation work programme) is now open.

 

The sub-group should have the following tasks:

  • Provide requirements and set priorities for the development of INSPIRE registry and underlying Re3gistry software
  • Test new releases of the central INSPIRE registry service and the underlying software and provide feedback
  • Develop Technical Guidelines and Best Practices for both registries and registers, including registry federations connecting the central INSPIRE registry and national registries. These guidelines shall at least address the following issues
  • architecture for a registry federation
  • operational procedures for exchanging information between the central and the national registers
  • exchange formats
  • APIs
  • Metadata for registries and registers
  • Participate in a test-bed for connecting national registries to the central INSPIRE registry
  • Participate in technical discussions on implementation issues
  • Define procedures and decision-making rules for a control body for the INSPIRE Registry (with the possibility to form a separate sub-group if needed)

The main outputs of the sub-group will be:

  • a roadmap for INSPIRE Registry development
  • updated versions of the central INSPIRE registry
  • Technical Guidelines on how to set up registries and registers for INSPIRE (including connecting to the central INSPIRE registry), covering topics such as versioning, http URIs (while interacting with groups working on this topic elsewhere in the MIF)
  • a test-bed for connecting national registries to the central INSPIRE registry including test instances of national INSPIRE registries deployed in different participants' organisations
Experts who would like to support the work of these sub-groups should reply to the recently published call for participation  and/or contact their national MIG-T representative.
