Application ISO 19137 defines a set of profiles of the spatial schema to provide a minimal set of geometric elements necessary for an efficient creation of application schemata. These profiles include components from ISO 19107, ISO 19108, ISO 19109 and ISO 19118.
Conformance classes Data types for 0-dimensional geometry
Data types for 1-dimensional geometry
Data types for 2-dimensional geometry
Implementation benefits The intent of ISO 19137 is to provide a smaller subset of the numerous classes available in ISO 19107 in order to simplify some applications of spatial schemas. ISO 19137 supports many of the spatial data formats and description languages already developed and in broad use within several nations or liaison organisations. ISO 19137 also clarifies the corresponding encoding rules in ISO 19118.
Products The concepts from ISO 19137 drive the development of applications, such as Esri ArcGIS and Quantum GIS.
