Type of standard ISO International Standard and OpenGIS Implementation Specification,Application level.
Application GML is an Extensible Markup Language (XML) encoding for transport and storage of geographic information.It is typically used for vector geometry with associated attribute data, such as, a road network or cadastral data. GML is specifically powerful for web processing of geo-spatial data.
Implementation benefits GML is a human readable and machine ‘processable’ encoding which makes it ideal for web data dissemination. GML is based on XML, which brings a number of advantages, such as, XML providing a method for verifying data integrity; the XML structure allowing easy integration of GML data with non-spatial data; and XML transformations. GML allows topology to be encoded in the schema.
