ANALYSIS AND IMPLEMENTATION OF APPLICATION SCHEMAS FOR THE INSPIRE BUILDINGS THEME

Michal Med, Petr Souček

Abstract


Implementing the INSPIRE directive involves transforming various data themes into the structure and content given by Data Specifications published by the Joint Research Center of the European Commission. The data is to be published in the GML format, which is the standard for the Open Geospatial Consortium. The validity of the data structure is ensured by validation against XML schemas. These schemas are usually also provided by JRC, though not necessarily for all application schemas. Six application schemas are defined for the currently implemented Buildings theme, but XML schemas are available for only three of them. All application schemas have been analyzed, and it has been found that the most suitable data model corresponds most closely to the BuildingsExtended2D application schema. No XML schema has been provided by JRC in the current version. The BuildingsExtendedBase abstract XML schema was also needed when using the previous schemas. There is now a need to create these missing XML schemas.
