Those of you involved with using and publishing spatial data probably have an idea of how complex Geography Markup Language (GML) documents can be sometimes. In principle GML encodings are supposed to be readable by people as well as by computer programs. However, ingesting complex GML documents can simply be too much for both us humans and GIS software to take, resulting in barriers for data use.
In this webinar, Ilkka will explain when and why the complexity of the current INSPIRE data models and encodings becomes a problem, and what is already being done to solve the situation.
✔ Understanding a complex world requires complex data models in general, but in particular cases less can be much more.
✔ Usable simplification requires re-design: what’s most important? The observation data case (O&M Simple Features).
✔ On-going work for INSPIRE GeoJSON encodings for INSPIRE—a trailblazer for others to come (MIF Action 2017.2)
This webinar will be presented by Ilkka Rinne, Spatineo’s Head of Customer Experience and Interoperability – Who has extensive experience in geospatial standards and making geodata more accessible to audiences.
