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.



provide direct access download service (WFS 2.0)


Provide a direct access download service based on the INSPIRE profile of OGC WFS 2.0 and OGC Filter 2.0 (same as ISO 19142 and ISO 19143); this may be either a new service or an existing service may be updated to meet INSPIRE requirements.


This task could be broken down into subtasks for the individual requirements and actions identified in the technical guidance document. This has not been done as often tools will allow to configure such a service so that all requirements of INSPIRE met. Where generic tools are used with no specific support for INSPIRE, the details of what needs to be done will vary based on the tool. The same is true for tools that support INSPIRE requirements explicitly, it is just that the configuration should be easier with those tools. Therefore it is questionable whether additional sub-tasks based on requirements listed by INSPIRE would provide any value to this vocabulary; rather it seems more valuable to describe the detailled tool-specific actions in tool-specific workflows and implementation examples. This approach may be changed based on feedback and experiences.
