Enum Class Specification

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<Specification>, Constable

public enum Specification extends Enum<Specification>
ISO/OGC specifications from which an interface, method, enumeration or code list was derived. Some specifications are available both at OGC and ISO.

Specification versions

Each specification has a default version number, which identifies more accurately the specification used by most non-deprecated GeoAPI elements:
  • For OGC specifications, the version number is the OGC revision number.
  • For ISO specifications, the version number is the publication year (ignoring corrigendum, which are implicit). For example if the specification is ISO_19115, then version 2003 stands for ISO 19115:2003/Cor.1:2006.
The version numbers are documented in Specification enumeration constants. Versions other than the default version may be declared in the UML.version() annotation of some GeoAPI elements, usually (but not only) for deprecated elements.
