Proposed change or action:


It has been proposed to establish a dedicated MIG sub-group to propose to the MIG appropriate updates to use of Controlled Vocabularies (COV) in the framework of INSPIRE. The objective of the proposal is to increase the discoverability of datasets and services through a the more efficient and effective use of keywords. This includes also the governance and discoverability of keywords within COV as such.

The draft Terms of reference (ToR) for this sub-group are attached. Please add your comments to the ToR as comments to this issue.

There are no issues that I have identified.

Dear Christian,

we have only a few comments and questions on the draft ToR:
  • We miss the proposed action in the work programme "Explore options how COV can contribute to INSPIRE semantic interoperability (metadata or data specifications)" as a task in the ToR. Is there any reason for excluding that topic from the ToR? The same applies to the proposed action "Explore business cases for COV within INSPIRE beyond metadata".
  • The timeline for submitting the project plan (31 August) seems to be very ambitious. Otherwise the timeframe for Task 1 (4 months) seems to be very long.
  • By the way... it would be nice to transform the draft into the new template available at #2164.

Best regards
Markus and Daniela

Thank you all for the comments! We will update the ToR after the endorsement of the MIG work-program by the MIG-P.
