Municipal geoportal for INSPIRE-compliant services

As part of an intermunicipal cooperation (IKZ), we have implemented a municipal geoserver fo rthe district of Marburg-Biedenkopf to meet the INSPIRE directive.

Since the end of 2020, land-use planning data (development plans, land use plans and landscape plans) have been made available as WMS and WFS in compliance with INSPIRE and integrated into the Geoportal of the federal state of Hesse. The maintenance of the data takes place by employees of the municipalities, who can easily carry out updates via an administration interface.

Technically, the solution is based entirely on open source software installed on an Ubuntu server. Components are PostgreSQL / PostGIS and the GBD WebSuite. The INSPIRE-compliant provision of the basic data managed in PostgreSQL / PostGIS takes place dynamically on request.

The data are available to the municipalities in the form of various OGC and INSPIRE services. And they are integrated in the Geoportal of the federal state of Hesse and the geoportal of the district of Marburg-Biedenkopf.

The implementation of the geoservice portal for the district of Marburg-Biedenkopf includes the following functionality for the subject of construction planning:

Search service

  • Provision of an INSPIRE compliant Web Catalog Service (CSW)
  • The metadata (insert, update, remove) of the CSW can be continued by authorized users from the municipalities via the administration interface.

Display services and download services

  • INSPIRE-compliant data is generated dynamically and integrated into the WebGIS client of the Marburg-Biedenkopf geoportal as WMS 1.1.0, 1.1.1 and 1.3.0 as well as WMTS 1.0.0.
  • Dynamic provision of INSPIRE-compliant WMS 1.1.0, 1.1.1, 1.3.0 or WMTS 1.0.0 services for integration into external applications.
  • Dynamic provision of INSPIRE-compliant WFS 2.0 services for vector data for integration into external applications.
  • Dynamic provision of INSPIRE-compliant WCS 1.0.0, 2.0.1 services for raster data for integration into external applications.

Data harmonization

  • Provision of an INSPIRE-compliant transformation of raster and vector data (scheme and coordinate transformation).
  • The configuration can take place by authorized users.
  • Before the data is provided, an INSPIRE validator checks it.
