Harmonising Dutch National Geodata Conform To INSPIRE Using Combined Transformation

Ebrahim Hemmatnia, Just Van den Broecke, Ko Van Raamsdonk


This paper addresses schema and coordinate transformations together with INSPIRE-compliant data delivery of Dutch national geodata using Combined Transformation (CT). This transformation approach, originating from the ESDIN Best Practices project (Lehto et al., 2009), combines both offline and on-the-fly transformation. Dutch national data sets for addresses and cadastral parcels were successfully transformed into INSPIRE data models. A Web Feature Service (WFS) and a Web Mapping Service (WMS) were developed as data delivery services. This research was performed using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) within the Netherlands Cadastre, Land Registry and Mapping Agency.
