Non-Official Spatial Data Services Consolidated Regulations

August 25, 2015 by Marc Leobet   Comments (1)

Working with Spatial data services (SDS) regulations is a nightmare as they change the Network services 's and the data specifications's regulations in multiple places.
So I created a non-official mashup of Regulation 1312/2014 and 1089/2010 to get a full  Regulation 1089-2010 consolidated with SDS
And a mashup of Regulation 1311/2014 and 976/2009 to get a full Regulation 976-2009 network services consolidated with SDS
Hope it helps.

INSPIRE Metadata for Dummies, the French guidelines for metadata are in English

June 13, 2014 by Marc Leobet   Comments (2)

, ,

I was surprised, last year, by the success of our "INSPIRE for Dummies". So I decided to translate the new version of our Technical Guidelines for Metadata, edited in December 2013, in English. It was updated after the feedbacks from the Regional SDI, and, I hope, clearer and simpler to use.
I add a "Warning from the translator : this is a rough translation from a document established by the French national coordination structure. I am not Kenneth White1, and I have choosen to share fast... Read full post

Compatibility of GI Data Licenses.

seis, gmes, inspire, geoss

We've recognised an important problem with geospatial (open) data licencing. There exist different licences and it is not easy to combine data from various sources with different licences, especially then in the open data domain when data can be reused. As an example, how to handle licences of a combination of OpenStreetMap and Corine CLC data? Both licences are open, however, there are some differences. And what if there will be another input from other ten open data sources? We've... Read full post
