|De-briefing MIG meeting #9 and INSPIRE Committee #15|
2016.4 Theme-specific issues / Thematic Clusters
|See de-briefing MIG meeting #9.|
|2016.5 Priority data sets / Thematic Viewer||The progress of making priority data sets available is significant for several MS and some are clearly frontrunners (ES, PT, LU) whilst some still have not started (5 MS). A new technical solution will be discussed (new action 2019.2) which should improve the finding of the datasets when harvesting the national geoportals. Many poor performing MS were very grateful for this initiative. The Commission also made it clear that it will not wait forever until all MS deliver on these minimum requirements which result from obligations which have already expired some years ago. The new Thematic Viewer of the JRC Geoportal was very much appreciated and will allow easy and real-time monitoring of progress. Finally, the work of the EEA work on linking INSPIRE closer to reporting (action 2016.5. and Reportnet 3.0) is widely supported and seems to have resolved a year-long dispute in this area. Overall, there is widespread appreciation and support for the environmentally-focussed activities set up since 2016.|
|2017.1 Master Guidance||This action is on hold and will be picked up in 2019.|
|2017.2 Alternative Encodings||The contractors for 2017.2 and 2017.3 (a consortium of WeTransform and Epsilon Italia) have started work on this issue. First drafts of the Good Practice documents to be prepared by the action will be discussed in the face-to-face meeting on 17-18 December.|
|2017.3 Better client support for INSPIRE data||The contractors for 2017.2 and 2017.3 have started work on this issue.|
|2017.4 Validation & conformity testing||The sub-group has started more regular meetings and has started providing feedback on improvement proposals for the ETF validator in the new Community space on Github.|
|2018.1 Monitoring & reporting 2019||The sub-group will meet on 4-5 December to discuss practical details of implementing the new M&R Decision.|
|Register and registries||No news were reported.|
There has been great interest in the workshop with contact points of national discovery services / catalogues in January in Ispra, which will be attended by all and almost all EFTA countries.
The JRC has sent out a questionnaire to participants to prepare for the workshop. It is particular important to document any deviations from the current approach used by the geoportal to establish links between data sets and services.
