GML Application Schemas and Profiles

Geography Markup Language provides the basis for domain- or community-specific "Application Schemas", which in turn support data interoperability within a community of interest. Application schemas are normally designed using ISO 19103 conformant UML, and then the GML Application created by following the rules given in Annex E of ISO DIS 19136.A discussion of the differences between an application schema and a profile can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geography_Markup_Language#Application_schema.

This section of OGC Network provides information and resource links to a variety of existing and emerging GML Application Schemas and Profiles.
