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.

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

French Technical Guidelines on Metadata of spatial data sets

January 19, 2012 by Marc Leobet   Comments (0)

As I said in the previous note, we have worked on French recommandations about datasets's Metadata. The first issue was the gap between INSPIRE's rules and ISO 19115. Working under the French INSPIRE structure of coordination's umbrella (ie. the CNIG),  with users from various public authorities and some very sharp experts (one was strongly involve in EC Technical guidelines), we tried build a bridge linking legal bank and standard's one.
We have produced recommandations towards software... Read full post

Consultation on the draft of French technical guideline for metadata

October 5, 2011 by Marc Leobet   Comments (0)

During a presentation in Edimburgh, I said that we were producing recommandations for spatial data managers to escape from traps of misunderstanding and I exposed  a regret : it would be better to work with other State members but time is lacking.At least we will try to share it with the others stake holders, specially French speaking ones. So I am happy to announce the launch of a consultation on the draft of our national technical guideline for metadata.

Formulas for calculating financial penalties

June 28, 2010 by Marc Leobet   Comments (3)



Les formules de calcul des pénalités financières que la Commission peut demander pour la France sont les suivantes :

Somme forfaitaire : Sf = Fbsf x Cg x n x jr
Sf : somme forfaitaire - Fbsf : forfait de base « somme forfaitaire » = 200 € - Cg : coefficient de gravité = de 1 à 20 - n : facteur prenant en compte la capacité de payer de l’Etat membre incriminé (effet dissuasif) = 21,83 - jr : nombre de jours de persistance de l’infraction.

Astreinte Journalière : AJ = Fba x Cg x Cd x... Read full post
