Deliverables: Standard Vocabularies 2.3.5 of the GLD WG Charter addresses the use of standard vocabularies for handling geographic concepts and geospatial data.

This may include:

  • Geographic terminologies
    • Political Boundaries
    • Hydrography
    • and other terminologies, e.g. along lines of efforts by UK Ordinance Survey and US FGDC A-16 Framework Data Themes
  • Geospatial Features
    • Simple Features, e.g. WGS84 lat/long
    • Complex Geodata, e.g. polygonal data
    • Spatial reference systems, e.g. EPSG and other designators for spatial reference systems
