Metadata and Data Validation for INSPIRE
This self-learning module provides examples of metadata and data validation against the requirements of the applicable Implementing Rules and Technical Guidelines of INSPIRE.
Using different tools, examples are given on how to validate existing metadata and/or create compliant metadata according to INSPIRE Implementing Rules for Metadata (Commission Regulation (EC) No 1205/2008).
Examples are also given on integrating the six additional metadata elements for interoperability required by INSPIRE Implementing Rules for interoperability of spatial data sets and services (Commission Regulation (EU) No 1089/2010) and relevant amendments.
This module shows how to assess the degree of conformity to the requirements specified by Commission Regulation (EU) No 1089/2010 relevant to a GML dataset belonging to INSPIRE Annex II/III data themes.
Conformity is assessed through an Executable Test Suite (ETS), i.e. physical implementation of the Abstract Test Suite (ATS) defined in the Annex A of the INSPIRE Data Specifications.
The module consists of three units as follows:
- "Discovery Metadata" validation
- "Metadata for interoperability" validation
- Data validation: from ATS to ETS
- Q&A about an online Executable Test Suite for INSPIRE dataset validation
- Video tutorial
- Video tutorial introducing to the use of the eENVplus Validation service, an on-line Executable Test Suite (ETS) for INSPIRE datasets
After completion of the module, the learner will be able to validate existing metadata, create and validate INSPIRE compliant metadata, assess the conformity of an INSPIRE GML dataset.
The module targets GIS and ICT professionals aiming to validate their metadata and datasets against INSPIRE requirements.
Basic knowledge of INSPIRE.
Training module “Procedures for Data and Metadata Harmonisation”.
