3 Scope of ISO/TC 211workStandardization in the field of digital geographic information.This work aims to establish a structured set of standards known as the ISO series of geographic information standards.This work shall link to appropriate standards for information technology and data where possible, and provide a framework for the development of sector-specific applications using geographic data.
4 The goal of ISO/TC 211... …a family of international standards that support understanding and usage of geographic informationincrease the availability, access, integration, and sharing of geographic informationenable interoperability of geospatially enabled computer systemscontribute to a unified approach to addressing global issuesease the establishment of SDIs on local, regional, and global levels

14 Standards of InterestISO/DIS Geographic information — Rules for application schemaISO Geographic information — Schema for coverage geometry and functionsISO 19115:2003 Geographic information — Metadata
15 Presents General Feature Model for defining geographic features Standards of Interest: ISO/DIS Geographic information — Rules for application schemaPresents General Feature Model for defining geographic featuresProvides rules for defining an application schema in Unified Modeling Language (UML)Provides rules for integrating schemas from other ISO/TC 211 standards into an application schema for a complete data structurePending registration as Final Draft International Standard (FDIS); targeted for publication as an International Standard (IS) in May 2004.ISO 19115: 2003, Geographic information — Metadata (including data quality reporting)ISO 19108:2002, Geographic information — Temporal schemaISO 19107:2003, Geographic information — Spatial schema.ISO defines both geometric and topological objects. In the definition of an application schema, ISO uses structures and definitions from ISO 19111:2003, Geographic information – Spatial Referencing by Coordinates, for geodetic and other coordinate reference systems.ISO/DIS 19110, Geographic information — Feature Cataloguing MethodologyISO 19112:2003, Geographic information — Spatial referencing by geographic identifiers
16 Standards of Interest: ISO/DIS 19109 Geographic information — Rules for application schema 3 property types: operation, attribute, association rolesOther concepts: feature associations, inheritance relationships, and constraints6 attribute types; 5 defined by other standards in the ISO series of geographic information standardsExtract of General Feature Model
17 Standards of Interest: ISO 19123 Geographic information — Schema for coverage geometry and functions Defines coverage as a “feature that acts as a function to return values from its range for any direct position within its spatiotemporal domain.”Data sets that can be represented as coverages include digital orthoimages, gridded elevation data sets, and thematic classification maps such as soils maps.Representation of geographic phenomena as discrete features or coverages is not mutually exclusive. A discrete feature or a coverage could represent the same phenomenon.Pending registration as a Draft International Standard (DIS); targeted for publication as IS in May 2005.Put another way, A coverage is a feature that associates positions within a bounded space (its spatiotemporal domain) to feature attribute values (its range).
18 Standards of Interest: ISO 19115:2003 Geographic information — Metadata The main package in ISO is Metadata entity set information. It is an aggregate of other packages:Identification information – information to uniquely identify a resource or resourcesConstraint information – restrictions on access and use of a resource or metadataData quality information – scope, lineage (information about events or source data used to construct the data), and data quality element information.Maintenance information - scope and frequency of updating data.Spatial representation information - information concerning the mechanisms (grid or vector) used to represent spatial information in a dataset.Reference system information - description of spatial and temporal reference system(s)Completeness, Logical Consistency, Positional Accuracy, Thematic Accuracy and Temporal Accuracy, as identified by ISO 19113, Geographic information – Data quality principles
19 Standards of Interest: ISO 19115:2003 Geographic information — Metadata (continued) Content information – information about the feature catalogue used and/or information describing the content of a coverage datasetPortrayal catalogue information - information identifying the portrayal catalogue used.Distribution information - information about the distributor of and options for obtaining a resource.Metadata extension information - information about user specified metadata extensions.Application schema information - information about the application schema used to build a dataset.Extent information – metadata elements that describe the spatial and temporal extent of the referring entity.Citation and responsible party information - data types for citing a resource (dataset, feature, source, publication, etc.) and information about the party responsible for a resource.

21 Roles of Consensus Organizations ISO provides a framework for the development of sector-specific applicationsIndustry Consortia provide technical implementation specificationsOpenGIS Consortium has adopted standards developed by ISO/TC 211 as abstract specifications and has submitted its specs as New Work Item Proposals (NWIP)Regional and national groups adopt international standards and standardize data and services using international standardsTopic 1 - Feature Geometry (Topic 1) same as ISO 19107, Spatial Schema (defines geometric and topological objects)Topic 12 - The OpenGIS Service Architecture (Topic 12) same as ISO 19119, ServicesISO replaces Topics 9 and 11, Metadata
