Implementing INSPIRE data model for Flood directive: the French experience
In 2011-2012, the French ministry in charge of Environment have defined data models for the implementation of the directive 2007/60/CE (Flood Directive). In October 2010, the French authorities had decided with European Commission the importance to use INSPIRE models for Flood reporting to avoid duplication of costs.
The draft regulation for interoperability of data sets and services, part ?Natural risk zones? was used as a reference for flood and exposure data models. A robot was developed to test data conformity.
After the reporting, at autumn 2014, the directorate in charge of Risk policies warned us about difficulties encountered by State services in regions for data production.
We have enquired them. The proposed presentation will expose which difficulties have occurred in implementing complex data models, with high-density of associations. It will stress how it could be damageable for European thematic reporting, and will address the cost/benefice of such models.
The link with the Maintenance and Implementation Framework, led by the European commission, will be made, specially MIWP-5 about validation and conformity, MIWP-14 Exchange of implementation experiences in thematic domains and MIWP-11 Simplification and clarification of GML encoding for spatial data.
