AAA® Base DLM in Shape format
The Standards-Based Data Exchange Interface (NAS) is the data exchange interface based on international standards for the AFIS® ALKIS® ATKIS® data model (AAA®) agreed by the Working Committee of the Surveying Authorities of the States of the Federal Republic of Germany (AdV). Core of the NAS is the Geography Markup Language (GML).

Since GML and NAS are only gradually implemented in many user systems AAA data of the Base DLM shall be offered for its instantaneous usability also in the established industry standard Shape.

A structuring of the data in layers as regards content and a consistent direct connection of attributive information to object geometries are connected with that what according to experience makes the work with the model for the user predominantly easier.

The product "AAA Base DLM (Shape)&quout; designed at the BKG therefore offers besides the "AAA Base DLM (NAS)" (documentation) an alternative data format for the AAA Base DLM without wanting to show the full scope of performance of the NAS. It adapts the main features of the product „Base DLM Layers“ that was already very successful in the past and can in principle be transferred to other data exchange formats as regards the layer generation.

Test data in the format NAS and Shape you find in our download area.

The migration of the Base DLM to the AAA data model shall be completed by the Federal States in 2009/2010.

Test data ATKIS Base DLM in the AAA® specification for download
With the standards-based AFIS®-ALKIS®-ATKIS®-data model (AAA®) agreed by the Working Committee of the Surveying Authorities of the States of the Federal Republic of Germany (AdV) for the data user result essential changes. With the provision of test data we want to support users to test the new data model and to adjust own developments to it.

The test data are available in the data exchange format NAS (Standards-Based Data Exchange Interface) that replaces the previous EDBS (Uniform Database Interface). A detailed documentation of the new data model including the NAS and the respective feature catalogues you find in the publications of the AAA Project (GeoInfoDok) under http://www.adv-online.de.

The provided test data comprise an area of 6 km x 6 km in North Rhine-Westphalia, region Bonn. The download contains the data in two NAS versions, in the version complying with GeoInfoDok 5.1.1 (partly also named V5.1.1-K2) and in the reference version GeoInfoDok 6.0. The first uses the GML specification in the version 3.0.0, the second the GML specification in the version 3.2.1.

Besides the annual update of the objects with capital importance a complete new collec-tion of the contours - taking into account the features of the water bodies - could be ac-complished. The contours have been automatically derived from the digital terrain model (DGM-D). In addition a compacting and a further approach to the acquisition criteria of the ATKIS feature type catalog 1:250.000 (ATKIS-OK250) were achieved.

The ATKIS-DLM250 presently includes 55 out of 66 feature types of the ATKIS-OK250

First data of the ATKIS Base DLM in the AAA data model
The ambitious AFIS ALKIS ATKIS Project (AAA®-Project) of the official German surveying is the basis for a modeling of the spatial base data of Germany which is from now on uniform and based on international standards. You find a detailed documentation under www.adv-online.de.

In the field of ATKIS the federal states want to perform the migration of the data of the Base DLM predominantly in 2009 and complete it at the latest in 2010.

At the end of 2008 North Rhine-Westphalia delivered as first federal state the ATKIS Base DLM in the AAA data model to the BKG. The data were delivered in the defined „Normbasierten Austauschschnittstelle (Norm-Based Exchange Interface, NAS)“ as NBA initial equipment. In constructive cooperation with North Rhine-Westphalia start-up problems were solved quickly and the import of the data into the database of the GeoDataCentre could now successfully be completed.

Until the Germany-wide AAA migration the Base DLM is further delivered Germany-wide by the GeoDataCentre in the old data model. The federal states support this by parallel provision of identical data in the old and new data model at the time of the respective conversion whereas after that only the AAA data model will be updated. After the Germany-wide migration the distribution in the old data model will be stopped.

The sub datasets already available in the AAA model will be ready for distribution probably from the middle of 2009 on parallel to the old data model in the sales department of the GeoDataCentre. Current test data for the Base DLM in the AAA data model will soon be available in the download area.

INSPIRE-Conformity of the AdV Meta Information System
In the scope of the INSPIRE initiative for establishing a European infrastructure for spatial information the implementation rules for metadata were published on 4 December 2008 in the Amtsblatt der EU. This regulation is binding in its entirety and directly applicable in all Member States and entered into force on 24 December 2008. The time for establishing metadata for the spatial data sets of the themes listed in Annexes I and II ends on 3 December 2010.

The ISO-conform Meta Information System of the AdV is prepared for collecting and providing INSPIRE conform metadata. Therefor the AdV metadata profile is extended by the ISO classes DQ_ConformanceResult and MD_SecurityConstraints. The obligatory entries for metadata elements and metadata sets are examined and the compliance with the required conditions is checked.

For data metadata sets the selection of at least one keyword from the multilingual thesaurus GEMET with reference to the annex themes I to III is required. For service metadata sets the selection of keywords from the Implementing Rules Liste Part D4 and the INSPIRE service type according to Implementing Rules Liste Part D3 is ensured.

For realizing the Technical Guidance Document for INSPIRE Discovery Services the Catalogue Service of the AdV Meta Information System was extended by the INSPIRE search attributes and the obligatory service operations Manager.Transaction and Manager.Harvest, respectively.

Geoid heights online computation
As of now, for the quasigeoid of the Federal Republic of Germany GCG05 an online computation for single points is available. For coordinates of a point in the ETRS89 in latitude, longitude and ellipsoidal height the geoid height and the normal height in the DHHN92 are computed. You find this under www.bkg.bund.de/goto/geoid .

An extension by entries in further coordinate systems, e.g. ETRS89_UTM is in progress.

Supported data formats for vector data
The diversity of data formats offered as standard by the GeoData Centre undergoes an up-to-date adaptation in 2008.

The EDBS format is only supported until midyear 2008 and is then replaced by the GML-based NAS format (see portal of the AdV under Publications). The ESRI-specific ArcINFO formats Coverage, Export/E00 and Generate are also not offered then as standard any longer. The most important delivery format for vector data remains presently the industry standard SHAPE. To alternatively support the delivery of simple data sets that can be represented in table form text files in CSV structure (exchange format of spreadsheet programs, separator semicolon, character coding UTF-8) are used. Changes resulting from this in the format spectrum can also successively be gathered from the updated product documentations.
13.12.2007

Definition of UTM32s, UTM33s, ...
The georeferencings UTM32s and UTM33s (see georeferencings) are now formally referred to Ellipsoid GRS80 / Datum ETRS89 as adaptation to the internationally common standard. Concretely this can be seen in provided projection data if the respective data format comprises them. For cartographic data and tasks in the medium- and small-scale range GRS80/ERTS89 is identical with WGS84. With the formal reference to GRS80/ETRS89 the EPSG Codes 25832 and 25833 that are important for web services can be exactly assigned to these georeferencings. These georeferencings do not include zonal numbers in the beginning of the Easting. To support the interpretation of UTM coordinates with zonal number in the beginning of the Easting, which is widely common in Germany, the georeferencings UTM32w and UTM33w (reference WGS84) as well as UTM32e and UTM33e (reference GRS80/ETRS89) are available.

UTM with and without strip indicator in the Easting
When using the cartographical projection UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) we up to now used a variant in which the zonal number appears in the Easting in the beginning. With the abbreviations of the GDZ this applies to the georeferencings UTM32w and UTM33w. This interpretation of UTM coordinates has a certain application range in Germany.

But internationally an application of UTM coordinates without zonal number in the beginning of the Easting is common. For this, the GDZ offers from now on the basic geodata also with the georeferencings UTM32s and UTM33s.
05.07.2005

New Digital Terrain Model for Germany(DGM-D) available
As a first important step on the way to a high-resolution digital terrain model for Germany the DGM-D with a grid width of 50 m and a height accuracy of +/- 1 - 8 m is available now. In future the height accuracy shall be improved to 1 - 3 m throughout Germany. Besides the grid width of 50 m also a variant with 25 m point distance shall be computed.

The state survey offices collected the height data by various methods: laser scanning, photogrammetry and digitizing of contours. By the BKG the state data were taken over, converted, extensively checked and finally integrated into a homogeneous data stock.

New definition of the ECK files for raster data
In the interest of a consistent proceeding of Federal Government and Federal States for the indication of the georeferencing of Digital Topographic Maps the GDZ has changed the order of corner points in the so-called ECK files (file extension .eck). The indication of points is still made clockwise, but it now starts bottom left and no longer top left. Moreover, the point of origin of the pixel system was placed into the center of the left lower pixel (until now: left bottom edge of the pixel) and thus was also unified and determined suitable for the "World file" (extension .tfw).
01.05.2004

Pixel-accurate orientation of all raster data
As of now, all tiles match pixel-accurately with Digital Topographic Maps. Unfortunately, there were deviations in the subpixel range so far due to technological reasons. These deviations are removed now everywhere, wherewith an important precondition for direct storage in many databank-based systems is fulfilled
