    Dear colleagues,

    Thank you for all your examples and tools!

    We at LBEG (State Authority for Mining, Energy and Geology, Lower Saxony, Germany) have compiled numerous change requests to codelists (mostly hierarchy) and will present them here starting following monday.

    Best regards,

    Hi all,

    I've gone through the various coverage models available in gml, my current conclusion is that the GeneralGridCoverage as defined in CIS 1.1 would serve our purposed nicely. Have yet to try Sylvain's GeologyLogCoverage example, but do have a first shot at a simple marine ProfileObservation utilizing GeneralGridCoverage - thoughts?

    Totally agree Jordi. Anyway, a clear rules to transform national data to EVRF2000 should be written somewhere.

    Contour regeneration would not be a problem as far as can be obtained from DTM but the collateral efects are still not known. In the Spanish case, an offset of 49cm must be applied to have EVRS ellevations.

    Then, yes. The richness of true 3D vector data of national agencies is lost in order to be consistent with elevation models and that models could have two different transformations: a) the rigorous tilted plane as published in or b) a simple elevation offset in case the differences along the country were neglectables
