The Coverage Implementation Schema version 1.1 is the backwards compatible successor of the “GML 3.2.1 Application Schema – Coverages” version 1.0 (abbreviated as “GMLCOV”). The CIS candidate Standard has been renamed to reflect the breadth of available data encodings beyond GML and reduce market confusion. While incorporating all features of GMLCOV 1.0, CIS 1.1 adds important new modeling capabilities, such as coverage partitioning, interpolation, geometry/value pairs, SensorML support, and point clouds. Further, a general model for all combinations of non-regular grids is supported which includes GML 3.3 coverage types as special cases.
