@Classifier(ABSTRACT) @UML(identifier="CS_CoordinateSystem", specification=ISO_19111) public interface CoordinateSystem extends IdentifiedObject
The set of coordinate system axes that spans a given coordinate space. A coordinate system (CS) is derived from a set of (mathematical) rules for specifying how coordinates in a given space are to be assigned to points. The coordinate values in a coordinate tuple shall be recorded in the order in which the coordinate system axes associations are recorded, whenever those coordinates use a coordinate reference system that uses this coordinate system.
