Het onderstaande is goed nieuws voor degene die met INSPIRE en DCAT te
maken hebben.

Dear colleagues,

I would like to provide an update on the GeoDCAT-AP XSLT published on Stash:


The XSLT has been regularly updated, following the decisions taken so
far, and this will be done also in the following weeks. The idea is to
release version 1.0 for the public review period, and to provide it
along with the GeoDCAT-AP specification as a way to test its
implementation. This might help identify issues that are not so
visible at the conceptual level.

The current version of the XSLT is also accompanied by some
documentation (still work in progress), explaining how to use it, how
the GeoDCAT-AP mappings are implemented, and also "where" in ISO 19139
records the XSLT expects to find HTTP URIs. You can find it here:


This documentation is also meant to offer a quick reference for
GeoDCAT-AP. The current version of the specification is around 90
pages long, and it has been prepared to be as much exhaustive as
possible. However, due to its size, I thought it would have been good
to have a more lightweight documentation. The mapping overview
accompanying the XSLT was prepared with this objective:


The document includes a mapping table, and then details for those
metadata elements having complex mappings.

I am keen to know what you think of it, and if you have any comments
and suggestions for improvement.

Finally, about the document on HTTP URIs:


This document reflects recommendations of the INSPIRE Technical
Guidelines (where, e.g., it is recommended the use of HTTP URIs for
coordinate reference systems) and common practices I identified by
analysing a sample of CSWs across Europe.

As such, that document is not meant to be normative, but rather a
working draft to be consolidated based on existing best practices. For
this reason, I kindly ask you to have a look at it, and to provide
your feedback, if any.

Thanks a lot!
