Type of standard ISO International Standard
Application level
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. 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.
