      I am just wondering about the choice of section size, 60 by 100 km. Any particular reason for this? Thought it might be easier with 100 by 100 when programming.

      We wanted to determine sectors feasible for both SU and PD (PD GML example will be uploaded today). We have done some testing and I believe the 100 x 100 km sector size was too large for the GML files to be processed efficiently. That's why we reduced one of the dimensions.

      Dear Francisco,

      you can try our (Epsilon Italia) Validation Service, developed in the frame of eENVplus project!

      Dear Francisco,

      We decided to publish NUTS ourselves as a part of Polish NTS nomenclature, because we publish yearly population datasets that are related to NTS via the NTS identifier. This brings me to the answer to another question: why "1.3"? NTS provides a nomenclature for identifiers which is different than NUTS and comprises also LAU1 and LAU2. The first digit is the level:

      1 - NTS1 (= NUTS1),
      2 - NTS2 (= NUTS2),
      3 - NTS3 (= NUTS3),
      4 - NTS4 (= LAU1),
      5 - NTS5 (= LAU2).

      So, hence the "1".

      The following digits are identifiers of following NTS levels. So "1.3" means region number 3.

      A full breakdown nicely put together by our Polish wikipedia:

      NTS TERYT NUTS
      1.3 – region wschodni PL3 – Region Wschodni
      2.3.18 – województwo podkarpackie 18 – województwo podkarpackie PL32 – Podkarpackie
      3.3.18.34 – podregion przemyski PL324 – Przemyski
      4.3.18.34.09 – powiat lubaczowski 1809 – powiat lubaczowski
      5.3.18.34.09.03.2 – gmina Horyniec-Zdrój 1809032 – gmina Horyniec-Zdrój

      As to validations, I'm not sure yet. We outsourced the GML creation but a tool for us is developed to allowed automated GML creation using GeoServer. The tool is still under configuration, so I'm not familiar with all the details.

      Cheers,

      Mirosław

      Dear Miroslaw and Fabio,

      Thanks both of you for the reply.

      For validation,  I tested  eENVplus project, for small gml files works fine, for big gml files web enviroment doesn't work that well.

      I used the validation tool of Hale as well with good results.

      For those big files I used Oxygen XML Edifor, wich enabled me to validate againts the schematron.
