INSPIRE data, metadata and services for a (quasi) pan-European data set of Marine Reporting Units

Started by Stefania MORRONE

During the 7th meeting of Marine Strategy Technical Group on Data and IT (3-4 December 2018 – Copenhagen) there were presented the results from an exercise commissioned by EEA in order to create INSPIRE data, metadata and services for a quasi pan-European data set of Marine Reporting Units under the AM data theme.

As we can read in the data set metadata lineage, the MRUs data set “is a compilation of the updated layers submitted by Member States to CDR by September 2018 in the frame of the 2018 reporting exercise (update of Articles 8, 9 and 10) in shapefile format. It has been transformed according to INSPIRE AM data specifications and is provided as INSPIRE GML data set. It will be completed with regional, sub-regional and WFD units, whenever used by Member States and reported under the 4geo.xml schema. The final dataset will also include the MRUs used in previous reporting rounds (1st implementation cycle 2012-2018).”

Should you like to send a request to the WFS, please always specify a “count” because asking for the entire data in some cases can run into ‘Out of Memory’ issues.
