Mapped Interval - Spatial object type

Definition: A special kind of mapped feature whose shape is a 1-D interval and which uses the SRS of the containing borehole.

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

INSPIRE Application schema: Geology - [INSPIRE Application schema Geology]

Subtype of: Mapped Feature


Attributes

Definition: The geometry of the mapped feature.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: GM_Object

Definition: The surface on which the mapped feature is projected.

Description: EXAMPLE: Topographic surface, Bedrock surface, Base of Permian

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: MappingFrameValue


Associated objects - Mandatory

Definition: A conceptual geological feature that is hypothesized to exist coherently in the world.

Description: This corresponds with a "legend item" from a traditional geologic map. While the bounding coordinates of a Geologic Feature may be described, its shape is not.The implemented Geologic Feature instance acts as the "description package"

Multiplicity: 1

Name of the association: specification

Association definition: A description association that links a mapped feature to a notional geologic feature.

Supertype of: GeologicStructure GeologicUnit GeomorphologicFeature EarthResource


Attributes

Definition: External object identifier of the spatial object.

Multiplicity: 1

Valuetype: Identifier

Definition: The name of the geologic feature.

Description: EXAMPLE: a lithostratigraphic unit, mineral occurrence, or major fault. Not all GeologicFeatures will have names, for example minor faults.

Multiplicity: 1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: CharacterString


Associated objects - Mandatory

Definition: An identifiable event during which one or more geological processes act to modify geological entities.

Description: A GeologicEvent should have a specified geologic age and process, and may have a specified environment. An example might be a cratonic uplift event during which erosion, sedimentation, and volcanism all take place. A GeologicEvent age can represent an instant in time or an interval of time.

Multiplicity: 1..*

Name of the association: geologic History

Association definition: An association that relates one or more geologic events to a geologic feature to describe their age or geologic history.

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

INSPIRE Application schema: Geology - [INSPIRE Application schema Geology]


Attributes

Definition: The name of the Geologic Event.

Description: Only major Geologic Events, such as orogenies, are likely to have names.

Multiplicity: 1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: CharacterString

Definition: The physical setting within which the geologic event takes place.

Description: GeologicEnvironment is construed broadly to include physical settings on the Earth surface specified by climate, tectonics, physiography or geography, and settings in the Earth’s interior specified by pressure, temperature, chemical environment, or tectonics.

Multiplicity: 1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: EventEnvironmentValue

Definition: The process or processes that occurred during the geologic event.

Description: EXAMPLE: deposition, extrusion, intrusion, cooling.

Multiplicity: 1...*

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: EventProcessValue

Definition: Older boundary of the age of the event.

Description: This is expressed using a geochronologic era defined in a vocabulary of recognised units, such as those of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) Stratigraphic Chart.

Multiplicity: 1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: GeochronologicEraValue

Definition: Younger boundary of the age of the event.

Description: This is expressed using a geochronologic era defined in a vocabulary of recognised units, such as those of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) Stratigraphic Chart.

Multiplicity: 1

Stereotypes: voidable

Valuetype: GeochronologicEraValue
