Geographic information - Simple feature access - Part 1: Common architecture (ISO 19125-1:2004)
This part of ISO 19125 establishes a common architecture and defines terms to use within the architecture.
This part of ISO 19125 does not attempt to standardize and does not depend upon any part of the mechanism by which Types are added and maintained, including the following:
a) syntax and functionality provided for defining types;
b) syntax and functionality provided for defining functions;
c) physical storage of type instances in the database;
d) specific terminology used to refer to User Defined Types, for example UDT.
This part of ISO 19125 does standardize names and geometric definitions for Types for Geometry.
This part of ISO 19125 does not place any requirements on how to define the Geometry Types in the internal schema nor does it place any requirements on when or how or who defines the Geometry Types.
