The rules defining harmonized names and titles of layers are difficult to implement. Examples of difficulties include:
  • layers corresponding to generic UML concepts such as EF.EnvironmentMonitoringFacilities
  • layers corresponding to different versions in time of a data set
  • layers corresponding to different scales of representation
  • layers produced in different organizational contexts

Proposed change or action:

In France, several proposals have already been developed to solve these difficulties. For example, the name of the layers could start by the proposed harmonized name but the rest of the name could be free.

Common solution to these difficulties should be developed.

Organisational set-up:

Establish a MIG sub-group to address the issue.
