INSPIRE Registry: Externally defined code list values available for testing


Around 30 INSPIRE code lists are defined by referring to vocabularies defined or governed by external entities (e.g. from the European Environment Agency, Eurostat).

Some of these are managed in registries and provide access to individual values through HTTP URIs.The INSPIRE registry now also supports references to such externally defined values.

For testing this feature, the externally defined code list values of the following code lists have been added in the INSPIRE registry’s sandbox instance:

  • Article 17 Counting Unit
  • Climate and Forecast Standard Names
  • Natura 2000 And Emerald Bio-geographical Region Classification

Further externally defined code list values will be added in the following months.
