THIS SPECIFICATION HAS BEEN SUPERSEDED BY GeoDCAT-AP

The INSPIRE+DCAT-AP suite of specifications has been contributed to GeoDCAT-AP, the geospatial extension of DCAT-AP, developed in the framework of the EU ISA Programme.

INSPIRE+DCAT-AP is superseded by GeoDCAT-AP, and it is no longer maintained.

WORKING DRAFT

How to use this document

This document is part of a suite of specifications concerning the alignment of INSPIRE metadata with the DCAT Application Profile for Data Portals in Europe (DCAT-AP).

The INSPIRE+DCAT-AP suite currently includes the following specifications:


Introduction

This document defines the extended version of the INSPIRE metadata profile of DCAT-AP (INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Extended), which is meant to define alignments for all the INSPIRE metadata elements using DCAT-AP and other Semantic Web vocabularies (whenever DCAT-AP does not offer suitable candidates), without breaking conformance with DCAT-AP.

More precisely, INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Extended is a superset of the core version of the INSPIRE profile of DCAT-AP (INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core), which defines alignments only for the subset of INSPIRE metadata elements that can be mapped to the ones included in DCAT-AP. INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Extended re-uses such alignments, and in addition defines those concerning the INSPIRE metadata elements not considered in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core.

The specification of INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core is available in a separate document:

INSPIRE profile of DCAT-AP - Core version

INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Extended: Characteristics

INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Extended includes all the alignments defined in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core and, in addition, defines alignments for the following three classes of INSPIRE metadata elements

  1. INSPIRE metadata elements not supported in DCAT-AP, and therefore excluded from INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core:
    • Metadata point of contact
    • Metadata date
    • Metadata language
    • Spatial resolution
    • Limitations on public access
    • Topic category
    • Lineage
    • Coordinate reference system
    • Temporal reference system
    • Character encoding
    • Spatial representation type
    • Data quality - logical consistency - topological consistency
    • Spatial data service type
    • Spatial data service category
  2. INSPIRE metadata elements available in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core, but for which only a partial mapping is supported in DCAT-AP:
    • Conformity (only degree of conformity conformant is supported)
    • Responsible organisation (only responsible party roles publisher and point of contact are supported)
  3. INSPIRE metadata elements available in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core, but for which only a many-to-one mapping is supported in DCAT-AP:
    • Resource types (the DCAT notion of dataset models both the INSPIRE notions of data set and data series; the DCAT notion of data catalogue models all the types of INSPIRE spatial data services)

For the elements in classes (2) and (3), the alignments defined in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Extended shall not be considered as a replacement to those defined in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core. Rather, for these elements, the two core and extended versions of the INSPIRE profile of DCAT-AP define alternative and not conflicting representations that can co-exist without breaking conformance with DCAT-AP.

Reference code lists for metadata elements

For a number of INSPIRE metadata elements, this document proposes the use of URI code list registers. These registers include:

  • Code lists defined in the INSPIRE Metadata Regulation [INSPIRE-MD-REG], and made available through the URI registers operated by the INSPIRE Registry [INSPIRE-REGISTRY].
  • URI registers operated by the Publications Office of the EU, whose use is recommended in DCAT-AP.

In the following table, column “Reference” specifies the part and section of the Annex to [INSPIRE-MD-REG] where such elements are defined. The two only exceptions concern metadata elements “Keyword denoting one of the INSPIRE spatial data themes” and “Encoding”, which are defined in [INSPIRE-D&S-REG].

Mapping summary

The mappings reported here do not include those already defined in INSPIRE+DCAT-AP Core, and they are limited to the RDF properties INSPIRE metadata elements correspond to, plus the domain and range of these properties.

Details on the mappings of individual INSPIRE metadata elements are provided in a separate document:

Elements and mappings common to INSPIRE metadata for data sets, data set series, and services

As a rule, the domain of the proposed mappings is either dcat:Dataset (when the element is used for datasets and series) or dcat:Catalog (when the element is used for services). However, “starred” elements – i.e., elements whose name is preceded by an asterisk (“*”) – are those having as domain either dcat:Distribution (when the element is used for datasets and series) or dcat:Catalog (when the element is used for services).

Elements and mapping specific to INSPIRE metadata for data sets and data set series

As a rule, the domain of the proposed mappings is dcat:Dataset. However, “starred” elements – i.e., elements whose name is preceded by an asterisk (“*”) – are those having as domain dcat:Distribution.
