Subject: INSPIRE Geoportal Harvesting Checker
Hi – I am managing a project on behalf of Ordnance Survey Ireland to look at options to implement a new INSPIRE portal for Ireland. We are trying to determine the EU harvesting requirements for metadata.
Is a CSW the only format that can be used to make a selection of metadata available for harvest by the EU or can it also be provided in other formats, for example in a Web Accessible Folder?

Even though there isn't a strict legal requirement to use an OGC CSW 2.0.2 ISO AP 1.0, all the countries that are part of INSPIRE have agreed to use that for exchanging ISO 19139 metadata.
The INSPIRE Geoportal only harvests endpoints that have been registered by the INSPIRE National Contact Point.
Ireland already has, since long, a registered CSW 2.0.2 Discovery Service:
Resource Provider: Irish Spatial Data Infrastructure project, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find more details here:

- Is the agreement to use an OGC CSW 2.0.2 ISO AP 1.0 for harvesting only or is it also the agreed format to meet the Discovery requirements as well? Are these used by every member state?
- Given that this is not a legal requirement, is there realistically any scope for Ireland to move to a different technology either for the Discovery Service or for the Harvesting endpoint? For example:
- CSW 3.0
- Web Accessible folder for harvesting combined with ArcGIS Portal or Open Data technology for the Discovery component

please use the Geoportal issue tracker for further discussing this issue.
OGC CSW 2.0.2 ISO AP 1.0 is the standard recommended in the INSPIRE Technical Guidelines (TG). While the TG is not legally binding, it explains how the requirements for discovery services stated in the INSPIRE Network Service Implementing Rules (IRs, the legal text) can be implemented using this standard. This is why the harvesting of MS discovery services is based on this agreed TG.
You are free to choose another base standard, but you would have to document how these meet the requirements in the IRs.
We can then discuss with the policy master (DG Environment) whether/how to support your technical solution as an additional solution for the INSPIRE geoportal.
