Corrigendum #2593

Wrong value type of Geometry attribute in StatisticalGridCell [SU]

Added by Miroslaw Migacz almost 5 years ago.

Target version:-
Corrigendum:Change value type for Geometry of StatisticalGridCell from GM_Polygon to GM_Surface. (note: in the implementing rules the type is correct - GM_Surface, so only the TG need a correction) INSPIRE document/system:TG SU [Data specification on Statistical units]
Submitting Organisation: Discussion (link):



The StatisticalGridCell featureType in the grid package of the Statisical Units (SU) model contains a wrong value type for the Geometry attribute. Using this value type unables WFS to generate geometries for features.

Detailed description:

In the Statistical Units data model the geometry attribute of StatisticalGridCell is defined asGM_Polygon. See:

However according to ISO 19107 GM_Polygon is a specialization of the GM_SurfacePatch abstract type. ISO definitions state the following:

"A GM_Polygon is a surface patch that is defined by a set of boundary curves and an underlying
surface to which these curves adhere."

"GM_SurfacePatch defines a homogeneous portion of a GM_Surface"


Since GM_Polygon is not an independent type it cannot be used as value type for geometry of StatisticalGridCell. Therefore WFS using the current SU schema does not generate geometry for features.
