The eENVplus Validation Service provides Executable Test Suites (ETS) implementing the Abstract Test Suites (ATS) which are included in the Annex A of the INSPIRE Data Specifications and contain a set of tests to be applied on a dataset to evaluate whether it fulfils the INSPIRE requirements.
The requirements to be tested are grouped in several Conformance Classes.
Each of these classes covers a specific aspect: for example A.1 conformance class contains tests related to the requirements on the application schema, A.2 conformance class contains tests related to the requirements on the reference systems, etc …
In order to be conformant to a specific Conformance Class, a dataset has to pass all tests defined for that Conformance Class.
If a dataset is not yet conformant with all requirements of the Data Specification, conformity to individual Conformance Classes can be claimed.
In order to execute abstract tests associated to Conformance Classes, an
Executable Test Suite(ETS), containing a physical implementation of the abstract tests, has to be derived from the
For those tests that cannot be automated the ETS contains guidelines to manual execution.
A single executable test can cover different abstract tests.
Tests included in the ATS vary according to the different data themes.
Select the INSPIRE Theme from the underlying dropdown list to display the ATS included in the Annex A of the relevant INSPIRE Data Specifications and have access to the associated ETS.
