Package org.opengis.referencing.gazetteer

Mapping between geographic identifiers and locations, either as descriptions or coordinates. This package deals only with spatial referencing by geographic identifiers, as specified in the ISO 19112 standard. Spatial referencing by coordinates (ISO 19111) is the subject of another package, namely org.opengis.referencing.crs.

Geographic identifiers are location descriptors such as country name, postal code or grid indexes. Gazetteers provide linking mechanism between referencing using geographic identifiers (this package) and referencing using coordinates (org.opengis.referencing.crs package).
