Welcome to the Statistical Units [SU] subgroup!
The group has been created to support implementation of the INSPIRE Statistical Units [SU] data theme. This is the place to share knowledge, participate in discussions and ask questions related to this theme.

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.
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:
|1.3 – region wschodni||–||PL3 – Region Wschodni|
|2.3.18 – województwo podkarpackie||18 – województwo podkarpackie||PL32 – Podkarpackie|
|18.104.22.168 – podregion przemyski||–||PL324 – Przemyski|
|22.214.171.124.09 – powiat lubaczowski||1809 – powiat lubaczowski||–|
|126.96.36.199.09.03.2 – 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.
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.
