more user-friendly approach for starting tests and navigating/filtering the test reports
Managed by the European Commission Joint Research Centre B6 Unit, the INSPIRE Reference Validator helps data providers, solution providers and national coordinators to check whether data sets, network services and metadata meet the requirements defined in the INSPIRE Technical Guidelines. It allows you to verify that the resources you provide meet the INSPIRE Directive requirements.
The Validator provides detailed test reports to help implementers understand how well their data, services, metadata or software solutions are doing (or where improvements may be needed).
