please have a look at this report:
INSPIRE Metadata Survey Results - EUR 22488
Thes report seems to be the "basis" of many assumptions in INSPIRE
Draft Implementing Rules for Discovery.
The draft IR states (7.3.5 - Summary and conclusion):
"The OGC Catalogue Service for Web specification is the MOST widely
adopted standard for INSPIRE SDICs and LMOs".
Now, let's back to 22.214.171.124 subclause (Deployment of catalogue
standards in the EU): Figure 3 shows just 39% of metadata holdings
(120 in Craglia research) already implements OGC Catalogue Service.
This does not mean "MOST widely" !!!
44% of forms collected have no answer and 6% have not sufficient information.
I'm wondering why this uncertainty brings DTs Network Services experts
telling us OGC CSW2 AP ISO is widely adopted.
Perhaps one good reason can be found in "Software For Distributed
Metadata Catalogue Services to Support The EU Portal" research .
At page 14 the report states:
"Because the Catalogue Service Broker implements CSW 2.0.0
ISO19115/19119 Application Profile (DE-Profile 1.0.1) ..."
And the Catalogue Service Broker for the EU Portal already exists, and
is provided by co terra SDI's suite.
