Report: Study on RDF & PIDs for INSPIRE: State-of-Play

Published on: 13/08/2015

This report is a deliverable of ISA Action 1.17, A Reusable INSPIRE Reference Platform (ARE3NA), that supports the implementation and reuse of the INSPIRE Directive, including how components of INSPIRE such as data models can be reused to aid cross-border and cross-sector interoperability in public administrations across Europea.

The report outlines a study examining the different issues that need to be considered for the creation of INSPIRE data in the linked data format of the W3C's Resource Decription Framework (RDF) and for the governance of Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) related to location information and the INSPIRE Directive, in particular.

This report presents an initial literature review and exploration of how INSPIRE RDF and PIDs could be tackled and sets out the methodology for addressing these issues (as reported in other deliverables)
