Package org.opengis.metadata.spatial

package org.opengis.metadata.spatial
Spatial representation information (includes grid and vector representation). The following is adapted from OpenGIS® Metadata (Topic 11) specification.

This package contains information concerning the mechanisms used to represent spatial information in a dataset. The spatial representation entity is optional and can be specified as grid spatial representation and vector spatial representation. Each of the specified entities contains mandatory and optional metadata elements. When further description is necessary, vector spatial representation may be specified as georectified. and/or georeferenceable entity.

  • Class
    Code indicating whether grid data is point or area.
    Axis properties.
    Name of the dimension.
    Information on ground control point.
    Information about a control point collection.
    Information used to determine geographic location corresponding to image location.
    Number of objects, listed by geometric object type, used in the dataset.
    Name of point and vector spatial objects used to locate zero-, one-, and twodimensional spatial locations in the dataset.
    Grid whose cells are regularly spaced in a geographic (i.e., lat / long) or map coordinate system defined in the Spatial Referencing System (SRS) so that any cell in the grid can be geolocated given its grid coordinate and the grid origin, cell spacing, and orientation indication of whether or not geographic.
    Grid with cells irregularly spaced in any given geographic/map projection coordinate system, whose individual cells can be geolocated using geolocation information supplied with the data but cannot be geolocated from the grid properties alone.
    Basic information required to uniquely identify a resource or resources.
    Point in a pixel corresponding to the Earth location of the pixel.
    Digital mechanism used to represent spatial information.
    Method used to represent geographic information in the dataset.
    Degree of complexity of the spatial relationships.
    Information about the vector spatial objects in the dataset.
