View Services allow data users to get a visual representation of location data. It is an overview of how the data looks rather than the full details.
The View Service Operational Guide v2.2 aims to set out the key details to operate an INSPIRE View Service as part of the UK Location Infrastructure.
There are a number of requirements of the INSPIRE View Service regulation that have a bearing on the setting up and running a View Service. This operational guide aims to walk through each of these requirements and make it easier for a Data Publisher to understand what is required.
The guide will be revised in the light of operational experience and feedback. You are encouraged to share your experiences with the UK Location Programme Team.
