Description

This is a call for participation in the MIG temporary sub-group on registers and registries.

In the INSPIRE registry and registers workshop on 22-23/1/2014 in Ispra it was proposed to create a MIG sub-group to deal with registry and register-related issues. The sub-group should have the following tasks:

  • Provide requirements and set priorities for the development of INSPIRE registry and underlying Re3gistry software
  • Test new releases of the central INSPIRE registry service and the underlying software and provide feedback
  • Develop Technical Guidelines and Best Practices for both registries and registers, including registry federations connecting the central INSPIRE registry and national registries. These guidelines shall at least address the following issues
    • architecture for a registry federation
    • operational procedures for exchanging information between the central and the national registers
    • exchange formats
    • APIs
  • Metadata for registries and registers
  • Participate in a test-bed for connecting national registries to the central INSPIRE registry
  • Participate in technical discussions on implementation issues
  • Define procedures and decision-making rules for a control body for the INSPIRE Registry (with the possibility to form a separate sub-group if needed)

The main outputs of the sub-group will be:

  • a roadmap for INSPIRE Registry development
  • updated versions of the central INSPIRE registry
  • Technical Guidelines on how to set up registries and registers for INSPIRE (including connecting to the central INSPIRE registry), covering topics such as versioning, http URIs (while interacting with groups working on this topic elsewhere in the MIF)
  • a test-bed for connecting national registries to the central INSPIRE registry including test instances of national INSPIRE registries deployed in different participants’ organisations

A detailed description of the scope, tasks and deliverables of the sub-group are available in the attached Terms of Reference.

Nominations by MIG representatives and applications from the pool of experts should be posted as comments to this issue, specifying the following information:

Contributions: [what can the expert contribute to the goals of this sub-group?]

The initial deadline for nominations and applications is 2014-11-14.

The virtual kick-off meeting will take place on 15 December 2014 from 14:30-16:30 CET (GMT+1).

Dear Michael,

As you know, BRGM is in charge of the French Geocatalogue, and we will embed in early 2016 the national register for INSPIRE codelist management. So, we propose to contribute to the interoperability testbeds.

Agreed with Clément Jaquemet, from now I will join the MIWP-6 work group. 

Best regards,

Etienne Taffoureau, BRGM
