Description

Dear Christina,

I was having a look the results in the Thematic Viewer, Priority Datasets, Nature & Biodiversity datasets for Sweden.

I see 6 metadata records, but no Download Service Dataset can be identified by the INSPIRE Geoportal:

 

So, as an example, I inspected this entry (in red, in the picture above):

Naturtyper och biotoper: Natura naturtypskarta (Naturvårdsverket)

Unique Resource Identifier
Code: D8144FB6-BD00-4873-ABFA-E9FA3BE86F7B

I have identified that this is the Atom-based Download Service that is intended to serve that dataset:

Naturvårdsverkets nedladdningstjänst (ATOM-flöde) för data som ingår i INSPIRE 

http://gis-services.metria.se/nvfeed/atom/NV_TopAtomFeed.xml

If I inspect that feed, I see this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom http://inspire-geoportal.ec.europa.eu/schemas/inspire/atom/1.0/atom.xsd" xml:lang="en">
	<title>Naturvårdsverkets nedladdningstjänst för geografiska data</title>
...
	<entry xmlns:georss="http://www.georss.org/georss">
...
		<link rel="describedby" href="http://www.geodata.se/geonetwork/srv/en/csw?request=GetRecordById&amp;service=CSW&amp;version=2.0.2&amp;elementSetName=full&amp;id=D8144FB6-BD00-4873-ABFA-E9FA3BE86F7B&amp;outputSchema=csw:IsoRecord" type="application/xml" hreflang="swe" title="Metadata"/>
...
		<georss:polygon>1 1 1</georss:polygon>
	</entry>

The link to the dataset metadata does not return any metadata:

http://www.geodata.se/geonetwork/srv/en/csw?request=GetRecordById&service=CSW&version=2.0.2&elementSetName=full&id=D8144FB6-BD00-4873-ABFA-E9FA3BE86F7B&outputSchema=csw:IsoRecord

 

The harvesting reports of the INSPIRE Geoportal tell you about this problem in a very explicit way.

It is also very easy find the reports using the Resource Browser where you can search, in this case, by the resource locator of the service:

It is impossible for us to chase every single Member State for every single resource.

I think it is reasonable for us to expect Member States to review the harvesting reports.

This Helpdesk is always available  should you need any additional clarification.

Best regards,
Angelo

#4 Updated by Angelo Quaglia about 2 years ago

Dear Christina,

The reason why I previously asked you if anybody is regularly checking the harvesting reports is that I keep seeing that Sweden has 353 (out of 455) metadata documents that are failing that basic validation against the XML schema.

http://inspire-geoportal.ec.europa.eu/GeoportalProxyWebServices/resources/INSPIREResource/INSPIRE-adae82ae-5364-11e8-bd03-52540023a883_20180618-061855/services/1/PullResults/

 

 

Sweden is among the countries with the highest percentage (78%) of XML invalid metadata.

Best regards,

Angelo
