The LPIS QA Web Application (https://lpis.jrc.ec.europa.eu/lq/index.php) has been developped to support MS with exchange of non-spatial and spatial data with the EC. Its main functionalities are:

  • creation and download of sample pre-selection (JRC-to-MS),
  • upload of LPIS QA XML and GML data (MS-to-JRC),
  • approval of MTS/ETS reporting packages (MS).

Use case: Uploading MTS Reporting Package

1. Select your implementation version for which you want to upload a MTS package
2. Select items to be uploaded from a drop-down menu and upload a selected file. All mandatory items will be listed with asterisk
3. Wait for the confirmation message for each item. You can navigate to the same page in order to edit or deactivate the file
4. Approve the MTS reporting package by clicking “approve button”. If there are missing elements they will be indicated in the appropriate table.

Use case: Creating a sample pre-selection

1. Select a reporting year from a drop-down menu
2. Select an LPIS lot from a drop-down menu
3. Select items to be uploaded from a drop-down menu. All mandatory items will be listed with asterisk.
4. Upload a selected file (GML***). All the files will be validated against the appropriate schemas and an e-mail notification will be sent with the validation results.
5. Approve the reporting package by clicking “approve button”. If there are missing elements, they will be indicated in the appropriate table. Please note that the package could be reopened, if one of the file turns to be invalid. If so, correct the file and re-upload it.
6. The web application will generate a downloadable sample pre-selection list (MS will be notified by an e-mail). Preparation of the sample pre-selection list is under the JRC control.

Use case: Downloading a sample pre-selection

1. Download the sample pre-selection file after you have received an e-mail notification.
  • Read an e-mail notification
  • Login to the Web Application
  • Select a reporting year from a drop-down menu

  • Download the xml file(s) with sample pre-selection available for you

Use case: Uploading an ETS reporting package

2. Select an LPIS lot from a drop-down menu.
3. Select ETS reporting package items to be uploaded from a drop-down menu.
4. Upload a selected file (GML***). All the files will be validated against the appropriate schemas and an e-mail notification will be sent with the validation results.
5. Approve the reporting package by clicking “approve button”. If there are missing elements, they will be indicated in the appropriate table. Please note that the package could be reopened, if one of the file turns to be invalid. If so, correct the file and reupload it.

Use case: Verifying a dashboard

Verify the status of the uploaded files for your packages: pending and approved files will be indicated in yellow or green respectively.


For GML files:

If you are using a standard EPSG code, click on the appropriate choice button.
The only valid EPSG definitions should be, those available on: http://www.epsg-registry.org/

If you don’t use a standard EPSG code, first upload a projection file through a projection menu. Then connect an uploaded projection file with your GML file by clicking on a drop-down menu.


IMPORTANT NOTE:

  1. When a GML file with specific SRS is uploaded (using .PRJ file), the ESRI-style description of the PRJ (assumed correct by default) might be incompatible with the syntax required by the conversion engine (OGR2OGR) of the web application.
  2. OGR2OGR works with SRS having well known definition (ie. EPSG:4326) or described in a file with a WKT (Well-Know Text) definition. Furthermore the SRS in question should be supported by PROJ.4 (http://trac.osgeo.org/proj/)
