The Directive INSPIRE (Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) requires Member States to carry out an annual monitoring of the implementation and use of their infrastructures for spatial information and to provide a triennial report on the implementation of this Directive. The Natural Data Bank (NDB) through the Spanish Inventory of Natural Heritage and Biodiversity (IEPNB) of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment (MAGRAMA) has made an effort to define the spatial data sets corresponding to each theme Directive and has been active in 2011 in the testing on the specifications of Annexes II and III with the following topics: Land Cover, Habitats and Biotops and Species Distribution, and is currently participating in the testing testing related to the EEA project “Common Database on Designated Areas (CDDA) in conformity with the INSPIRE data specifications". From Tragsatec has developed a methodology for the treatment and tailoring information to the INSPIRE data specifications that establish the technical characteristics necessary for creating data sets, metadata and harmonized services. This methodology consists of three phases: 1) Study INSPIRE data specifications; 2) Relationship between the source data and Inspire data. Creating matching table; 3) Generation of UML diagram from source data; 4) Download an d analysis of XSD templates; 5) Transformation and obtaining GML file.
