INSPIRE Registry: RDF representation now supported

29 Sep 2014
Groups audience: 

(Apologies for cross-posting)
Dear colleagues,
The INSPIRE Registry is a service giving access to INSPIRE semantic
assets (e.g., application schemas, meta/data codelists, themes), and
assigning to each of them a persistent URI. As such, this service can
be considered also as a metadata directory/catalogue for INSPIRE, as
well as a registry for the INSPIRE "terminology".
Starting from June 2013, when the INSPIRE Registry was first
published, a number of version have been released, implementing new
features based on the community's feedback.
Now, recently, a new version of the INSPIRE Registry (v4) has been
published, which, among other features, makes available its content
also in RDF/XML:
http://inspire.ec.europa.eu/registry/
The RDF representation currently adopted is documented at:
https://ies-svn.jrc.ec.europa.eu/projects/registry-development/wiki/RDF_...
The plan is to revise and or extend it based on feedback. Comments can
be submitted directly from the INSPIRE Registry pages, by using the
feedback tool (it can be activated by clicking on the "balloon" tab on
the right side of the page).
Future work includes:
- Support to other RDF serialisations (in particular, Turtle and JSON-LD)
- Deployment of a SPARQL endpoint
Looking forward to receiving your inputs,
Best,
Andrea
