INSPIRE data set for the thema Geographical Names (GN)

The INSPIRE - Geographic Names data are harmonised according to INSPIRE Implementing Rules and correspond with INSPIRE xml schema in version 4.0 and ELF xml schema in version 1.0. This dataset of geographic names of the Czech Republic therefore has the unified design with other data created for this INSPIRE theme in frame of whole Europe. The features are represented by a vector (punctual) component with attributes containing wider information about names. The base of the dataset is the database of geographic names of the Czech Republic Geonames completed with names of features located in the Fundamental Base of Geographic Data of the Czech Republic (ZABAGED®) that are not part of Geonames (street and squares names, traffic nodes and protected areas). The attributes are based on the source databases contents eventually constant on the base of characteristic of source databases (e.g. all names are Czech endonyms, names originating in Geonames standard, street names are official etc.)

Abstract: The INSPIRE - Geographic Names data are harmonised according to INSPIRE Implementing Rules and correspond with INSPIRE xml schema in version 4.0 and ELF xml schema in version 1.0. This dataset of geographic names of the Czech Republic therefore has the unified design with other data created for this INSPIRE theme in frame of whole Europe. The features are represented by a vector (punctual) component with attributes containing wider information about names. The base of the dataset is the database of geographic names of the Czech Republic Geonames completed with names of features located in the Fundamental Base of Geographic Data of the Czech Republic (ZABAGED®) that are not part of Geonames (street and squares names, traffic nodes and protected areas). The attributes are based on the source databases contents eventually constant on the base of characteristic of source databases (e.g. all names are Czech endonyms, names originating in Geonames standard, street names are official etc.)
Purpose: This dataset created by harmonisation of geographical names data from the territory of the Czech Republic according to INSPIRE Implementing Rules has a unified design with other data created for this INSPIRE thema in frame of whole Europe.
