INSPIRE and flood directive reporting: important issues to raise Manuela Pfeiffer WISE GIS/IT-Workshop 7.5./8.5.2012 Copenhagen
Scope “Natural Risk Zones” (NZ) INSPIRE Directive (2007/2/EC) defines Natural Risk Zones theme as: “Vulnerable areas characterised according to natural hazards (all atmospheric, hydrologic, seismic, volcanic and wildfire phenomena that, because of their location, severity, and frequency, have the potential to seriously affect society), e.g. floods, landslides and subsidence, avalanches, forest fires, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions.” Overall approach taken: "Natural risk zones" are zones where natural hazards areas intersect with highly populated areas and/or areas of particular environmental/ cultural/ economic value. Risk in this context is defined as: Risk = Hazard x Vulnerability x Exposure with regards to the social, environmental, cultural and economic assets in the zone respectively area of interest.
4 kinds of spatial object types that are derivated both in vectors and in coverages: Observed event Hazard area Risk zone Exposed element For each of them, the following feature types have been created: abstract feature type that contains the properties (attributes, or constraints) of the spatial object that are common both to its vector representation and to its coverage representation. vector feature type and a coverage feature type generated from the abstract feature, and with the properties that are specific to vector or coverage representation. It is therefore not required to provide data both in coverages and in vector, but either in vector or in coverages.
Merged NZ Core Model Draft proposal Vectors Coverages
Key NZ code lists: facilitate semantic interoperability; more detailed terms are extensible by MS/Data providers, (narrower concept); data provider can add specific classifications of type of hazards or exposed elements (regional, local, more detailed etc.) e.g. lists of flood types and adverse consequences
Categories of Natural hazards (1 st level) Geological/hydrogeological (FD: “Tsunami”) Meteorological/climatological (FD: all other “flood types”) Fires Biological Cosmic Categories of Exposed elements (1 st level) FD: “Types of adverse consequences” Human Health (FD: “Human Health”) Economic assets (FD: “Economic Activities”) Environmental assets (FD: “Environment”) Cultural assets (FD: “Cultural heritage”) Key NZ code lists:
Relationship between risk, hazard, vulnerability and exposure
Relevant reporting obligations : Floods Directive (2007/60/EC) – FD NZ considered FD in Annex B Use Case “Flood Risk Maps” and provides a ”Floods Model” as an example only (no premature fixation in terms of FD reporting) Demonstration of the extensibility of the core NZ model for a specific hazard (can be re-used or modified = flexibility for Data providers) Collaboration with the Floods Directive Reporting Drafting Group (joint meetings, comments on the drafts etc.) Full harmonisation for the Second Reporting cycle (after 2015, utilisation of implementing experience)
WFD-Waterbody FD – Extension FD-PFRA FD-APSFR FD-FRM FD-FHM Annex I HY object: Inundated land FD-past events scenarios “Type of consequences” – tb specified
… there are some other FD-relevant INSPIRE themes: e. g. Area Management for UoM / RBD, Hydrography(WFD-Waterbodies, man-made objects) Protected areas ….
Outlook 26 March – 20 April 2012 Preparation of Data Specifications v3.0 23 April – 11 May 2012 Preparation of draft Implementing Rule v1.0 (comments by TWG‘s 4 May until 9 May) 14 May – 8 June 2012 Review of draft Implementing Rule v1.0 by Member States 11 June 2012 – 29 June2012 Preparation of draft Implementing Rule v2.0 2 July – 27 July 2012 Interservice Consultation on draft Implementing Rule v2.0 21 September 2012 Final draft Implementing Rule v3.0 October/November 2012 (to be confirmed) INSPIRE COMMITTEE Meeting √
Thank you for your attention !
Scope AM Definition “Areas managed, regulated or used for reporting at international, European, national, regional and local levels. Includes dumping sites, restricted areas around drinking water sources, nitrate-vulnerable zones, regulated fairways at sea or large inland waters, areas for the dumping of waste, noise restriction zones, prospecting and mining permit areas, river basin districts, relevant reporting units and coastal zone management areas.” Broad scope encompassing wide range of zone types that are established or used for: Management Restriction/regulation Reporting covered by “Area Management Restriction and Regulation Zones” application schema covered by requirements on reporting data
