The The centre of Semantic Interoperability (ICSE) the instrument is defined in National Interoperability (ENI) to publish the data model of the elements of interoperability to exchange information between public administrations and between them and the citizenry. Is available to any public administration and any profile work on the environment of interoperability.
A data model is the set of definitions (conceptual level), interrelationships (logical level), and rules and conventions (physical level) to describe the data for exchange, which constitutes the foundation of the dimension of the semantic interoperability. Documents are composed of semantic assets , i.e. reusable parts, which enables the standardization of concepts.
According to the ENI, main objectives ICSE of are:
- Identify the data model that are of common
- Provide a repository of data models of exchange of information to gather, publish, classifying, locate and disseminated
- Facilitate the interoperability of the public sector to publish the data model for its services for the exchange of information through XML schemata (XSD), as well as their encodings and associated documentation.
The XML schemata (XSD) allow the definition of semantic assets in a structured set of simple and complex, and provides that the information exchanged may be subject to automatically by any application.
- To facilitate the information exchanged may be subject to automatically by applications that did not intervene in creation.
