Developing Feature Types and Related Catalogues for the Marine Community - Lessons from the MOTIIVE project

Abstract

MOTIIVE (Marine Overlays on Topography for annex II Valuation and Exploitation) is a project funded as a Specific Support Action (SSA) under the European Commission Framework Programme 6 (FP6) Aeronautics and Space Programme. The project started in September 2005 and finished in October 2007. The objective of MOTIIVE was to examine the methodology and cost benefit of using non-proprietary data standards for data exchange amongst and between different communities as defined by the INSPIRE data theme annexes. Specifically it embraced the harmonisation requirements between the INSPIRE Annex II data theme ‘elevation’ (terrestrial, bathymetric and coastal) and INSPIRE Annex III marine thematic data for ‘sea regions’, ‘oceanic spatial features’ and ‘coastal zone management areas’. This was examined in context of the requirements for interoperable information systems as required to realise the objectives of GMES (Global Monitoring for Environmental Security) for ‘global services’. The work draws particular conclusions on the realisation of Feature Types (ISO 19109) and Feature Type Catalogues (ISO 19110) in this respect.
