Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (ENERGYINTEROP-334) KML or GML?GML Standard Profile would be consistent with CIM grid locations andEmergency Management

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/ENERGYINTEROP-334?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=24837#action_24837 ] 

Bruce Bartell commented on ENERGYINTEROP-334:

There is an EMIX JIRA thread on this. It seems from Carl's comments that he is recommending GML. It would seem that if he is willing to make a specific recommendation, he would be the SME involved.

Bruce -


GML (Geography Markup Language) is an OGC standard that is also an ISO standard. GML is an XML grammar based for the modeling and interchange of geospatial content (or content with a geospatial property). KML, also an OGC standard, is designed for visualization of geospatial content in earth browser systems. KML was not designed as an content interchange mechanism - although folks do so. One issue to be aware of is that KML has no concept of  "feature". GML does.


A good summary is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_Markup_Language

> See also EMIX-310. Comments may be here or in EMIX-310. Should be consistent.
> Emergency Management is using an approved but not yet published profile of GML; EMIX and Energy Interop are using KML, both from Open GeoSpatial Consortium,
> CIM appears to use GML for grid locations.
> For consistency, it would be better to go with the flow provided the GML profile does what we need.
