ItemAn initial formal model for a Spatial Data InfrastructureHjelmager, Jan ; Moellering, Harold ; Delgado, Tatiana ; COOPER, ANTONY ; RAJABIFARD, ABBAS ; Rapant, Petr ; Danko, David ; Huet, Michel ; Laurent, Dominique ; Aalders, Henri ; Iwaniak, Adam ; Abad, Paloma ; Duren, Ulrich ; Martynenko, Alexander ( 2008)The Commission on Spatial Data Standards of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) is working on defining formal models and technical characteristics of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI). To date, this work has been restricted to the Enterprise and Information Viewpoints from the ISO Reference Model for Open Distributed Processing (RM-ODP) standard. The Commission has developed models for these two viewpoints. These models describe how the different parts of an SDI fit together in the viewpoints in question. These models should be seen as a contribution towards the overall model of the SDI and its technical characteristics. During the model development process, the roles of the different Actors in an SDI in the Enterprise and Information Viewpoints have also been identified in Use Case diagrams of an SDI. All the models have been developed using the Unified Modeling Language(UML).
