Application ISO 19162 defines the structure and content of a text string implementation of the abstract model for coordinate reference systems as described in ISO 19111:2007 Geographic information - Spatial referencing by coordinates. Well Known Text (WKT) is commonly used in database implementations to store and transport geo-spatial data.
Implementation benefits WKT offers a compact machine- and human-readable representation of geometric objects. This standard extends earlier WKT to allow for the description of coordinate operations.
