Application ISO 19107 provides conceptual schemas for describing and manipulating spatial characteristics of geographic features. The associated set of operators is also described.
Conformance classes Geometric primitives
Geometric complexes
Topological complexes
Topological complexes with geometric realisations
Boolean operators
Implementation benefits ISO 19107 describes the geometry and topology of vector features, as well as threedimensional features. The geometry described in ISO 19107 provides a means of quantitative description of features, for example, using coordinates or mathematical functions. The taxonomy of operators includes a formal definition and thus allows for harmonious implementations.
Products The concepts from ISO 19107 are implemented in applications such as Esri ArcGIS and QuantumGIS. ISO 19107 is also the basis for GML (refer to Table 10.16).
