Geoph Object - Abstract - Spatial object type

Definition: A generic class for geophysical objects.

Description: GeophObject models single geophysical entities that are used for spatial sampling either by means of data acquisition or data processing.

INSPIRE Data Theme: Geology - [INSPIRE Data Theme Geology]

INSPIRE Application schema: Geophysics - [INSPIRE Application schema Geophysics]

Supertype of: Geoph Measurement


Definition: External object identifier of the measurement.

Description: NOTE An external object identifier is a unique object identifier published by the responsible body, which may be used by external applications to reference the spatial object. The identifier is an identifier of the spatial object, not an identifier of the real-world phenomenon.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: Identifier

Definition: Citation of geophysical documentation

Description: Used for title, date of related documentation and URL for online access. At the minimum a short name (title) shall be given.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: DocumentCitation

Definition: 2D projection of the feature to the ground surface (as a representative point, curve or bounding polygon) to be used by an INSPIRE view service to display the spatial object location on a map.

Description: When measurement setup is 3 dimensional, it is necessary to define a 2D geometry for displaying purposes. It shall be the 2D projection of the spatial object on the ground surface. Allowed types: point, track and outline. Examples: projected geometry of a borehole logging measurement is a point coincident with the borehole collar location. Projected geometry of a 3D multielectrode DC measurement is a polygon

Valuetype: GM_Object

Definition: Vertical extent of the range of interest.

Description: This parameter serves discovery purposes. It may refer both to the vertical extent of the measurement setup (p.e. borehole logging) or the extent of the range where processed data is spatially referenced to (Vertical Electric Sounding). The aim is to give an idea to the user about the estimated depth of investigation.

Definition: Distribution metadata

Description: Data providers may use external services to provide information on a geophysical measurement. Links to the access points, description of ordering procedures or external services can be added in distributionInfo, that is an ISO MD_Distributor record.

Valuetype: MD_Distributor

Definition: Identifier of a larger work dataset, typically a campaign or project

Description: Measurements are usually made in campaigns. The largerWork identifier points to the parent Campaign or Project
