This is a draft RDF vocabulary for representing spatial data sets in INSPIRE as RDF. This vocabulary has been created using the “Guidelines for the RDF encoding of spatial data”.

The use of RDF is optional and does not supersede or replace the requirements regarding encoding specified in Clause 9 of the INSPIRE Data Specifications. This optional encoding is intended to support the e-government and open data community in Europe, which is increasingly looking at RDF to represent data.

This is a draft version. It has limitations and is expected to contain errors. Please report any issues or concerns in GitHub.

This ontology contains classes and properties that have been derived from the INSPIRE Hydro - Base application schema.

During the derivation, the following mappings, alignments, and omissions have been applied:

  • Mappings: none

  • Alignments (through subsumption):

    • Properties of spatial object types with value type GeographicalName are aligned to property locn:geographicName.
  • Omissions: none
