Implementation benefits A conceptual schema for temporal characteristics of geographic features allows the development and use of geographic information in applications, such as predictive modelling. ISO 19108 provides the basis for defining the temporal feature attributes, feature operations, and feature associations, and for defining the temporal aspects of metadata about geographic information.
Products ISO 19108 is implemented in numerous applications, mainly for metadata purposes or for handling time-aware data. Libraries such as GeoTools, implement ISO 19108 to handle all temporal events.
