Feature Catalog Common (FCC) Version: 1.0



FCC 1.0 is an XML Schema implementation derived from ISO 19110, Geographic information — Methodology for feature cataloguing. It includes abstract classes shared by multiple namespaces and is required in order to enable modularization of the XML implementation. The XML schema was encoded using the rules described in ISO/TS 19139:2007, Clause 8 and implementation approach from ISO/TS19115-3, Clause 8.

XML Schema for fcc 1.0

fcc.xsd is the XML Schema document to be referenced by XML documents containing XML elements in the fcc 1.0 namespace or by XML Schema documents importing the fcc 1.0 namespace. This XML schema includes (indirectly) all the implemented concepts of the fcc namespace, but it does not contain the declaration of any types.

The XML Schema for fcc 1.0 are available here. A zip archive including all the XML Schema Implementations defined in ISO/TS 19115-3 and related standards is also available.

abstract.xsd implements the UML conceptual schema defined in ISO 19110, Geographic information — Methodology for feature cataloguing. It was created using the encoding rules defined in ISO 19118, ISO 19139, and the implementation approach described in ISO 19115-3 and contains the following classes (codeLists are bold): Abstract_FeatureCatalogue, and Abstract_FeatureType

The fcc 1.0 namespace imports these other namespaces:
