Trouble validating GML Application schemas

Hi All,

Today I downloaded the GML application schemas from the data specifications site. One of the first things I tried was testing whether these were valid xml schemas. Validation (with oXygen) fails because there are somehow duplicate <annotation> fields in the schema (with exactly the same text). After removing the duplicates schema validation goes fine. Anyone any idea what is happening here?

Thanks in advance, Wilko Quak

I found the same issue in all v3.0 schemas. Looks like an export issue with ShapeChange through which the schemas seem to have been generated. I removed all double annotations by hand but definitely this needs to be reported/fixed at the source. Maybe someone on this list knows the channels to report this to the INSPIRE schema authors ?

best, Just van den Broecke

included <annotation> elements twice which causes errors in

This has been fixed (thanks to Clemens Portele). We will publish a new version of the GML application schemas once the changes made during the Inter-service consultation on the Implementing Rule have been incorporated into the common UML repository (hopefully before Christmas).
