This vocabulary consists of a hierarchical set of labels with their definitions expressing the duties an implementer might need to carry out to produce any INSPIRE resources.

The list of tasks relies on the legal requirements (both from the Directive and Regulations) and INSPIRE’S technical guidance documents.

When implementers describe their implementation guides as a series of steps in a workflow, they pick relevant tasks from this common reference vocabulary. Also solution providers are invited to link the INSPIRE tasks supported by their tools so they are easily retrievable.

Create new or import, transform and update existing metadata for the download service.


This task could in principle be broken down into subtasks per group of metadata elements or even the individual metadata elements. This has not been done as typically tools will allow to edit all metadata elements covered by INSPIRE and it may even be counterproductive to create vocabulary entries for every detail. This approach may be changed based on feedback and experiences.
