Could you please add a bit of details to this activity.

Is the dataset(s) / the method(s) for accessing it going to be registered in the infrastructure? What is the INSPIRE database referred here?

What is the relationship between this activity an WP10 tasks?

#3 Updated by Panagiota Koltsida about 3 years ago

Dear @leonardo.candela@isti.cnr.it currently I'm checking the available datasets from this portal: http://inspire-geoportal.ec.europa.eu/discovery/
I'm trying to identify the potential datasets that fit our scenario for WP6.
We have not decided yet where we are going to store them.

#4 Updated by Leonardo Candela about 3 years ago

If you manage to discover what is the technology/standards this portal is based on we can understand whether the SDI facilities we have make it possible to programmatically harvest datasets from this portal.

E.g. if there is support for CWS we might systematically collect datasets.

#5 Updated by Panagiota Koltsida about 3 years ago

I have not found an automatic way to retrieve the datasets yet. For the moment I'm making a list with possible datasets to use, which will be "manually" inserted into the system.
I will publish the list the following days

  • % Done changed from 30 to 90

I have created a dedicated wiki page with potential datasets of interest

The page will be updated whenever new datasets are discovered

#8 Updated by Pasquale Pagano about 3 years ago

Can we plan to register those dataset in the geospatial infrastructure catalogue? GP could you provide hints on how to do it.

#9 Updated by Panagiota Koltsida about 3 years ago

@gianpaolo.coro@isti.cnr.it Any hint on how to automatic access these datasets?

#10 Updated by Gianpaolo Coro about 3 years ago

I guess this task could be similar to what we solved here #3563
In this case, we applied a script developed by @paolo.fabriani@eng.it

The approach indeed depends on the kind of data we want to upload. Paolo's script works for both GRID-NetCDF files (in this case also internal maps are indexed on the infra GeoNetwork catalogue) and for other kinds of raster files (for which maps are not produced), whose payload must be ported on the infrastructure.

As for externally hosted layers, in the case of both raster and vector data, you can simply use this library


and follow the examples you find here, in order to index them on the infrastructure GeoNetwork:


The script requires indicating WMS/WFS/WCS links and some other basic metadata.
