Dear all

During the INSPIRE implementation of a web service for a Land Cover dataset characterised for more than one nomenclature we have a problem to give name for layers, because the specifications establishes only one layer per FeatureType and when there are more than one nomenclatures it is impossible assign a correct name for layers in the same web service. E.g.: with a unique dataset CLC2006 can be classified according portrayal for level 1 and level 3, so 2 different layers will appear in the web service, but both of then, following the specifications, should be named as ‘LC.LandCoverSurfaces’. How to deal with this issue ensuring the specifications compliance?

Best regards
