Supported ISO/TC 211 International Standards

ISO/TC 211 Geographic Information Standards Esri's Implementation
ISO 19106:2004—ProfilesEsri is using the concepts in this standard to produce user-community profiles of metadata and the Simple Features (SF) GML.
ISO 19106:2004—ProfilesEsri has used the concepts in this standard to produce user-community profiles of metadata and the Simple Features GML.
ISO 19107:2003—Spatial SchemaEsri has used the concepts in this standard in the development of ISO 19125 and ISO 19115; basic concepts defined in this standard are implemented in ArcGIS and in the design of geodatabases. This is the foundation for Simple Features GML.
ISO 19108:2003—Temporal SchemaEsri has implemented the concepts in this standard in metadata and handling time-aware data in ArcGIS.
ISO 19109:2005—Rules for Application SchemaUsing the concepts described in this standard, Esri defines application schemas using a conceptual schema language (e.g., UML). The ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension applies the concepts of mapping from one application schema to another for data transfer as defined in the standard. Esri also uses the same concepts as the general feature model (GFM) as defined in the standard.
ISO 19110:2005—Methodology for Feature CatalogingEsri is participating in several standards organizations to develop an encoding for feature catalogs based on the concepts in this standard. Encoded catalogs can be used as additional metadata. Esri is also participating in the development of a North American Profile of ISO 19110.
ISO 19111:2003—Spatial Referencing by CoordinatesEsri implements the basic concepts defined in this standard through GML and in coordinate reference system libraries in ArcGIS.
ISO 19112:2003—Spatial Referencing by Geographic IdentifiersEsri uses the concepts defined in this standard in the implementation of gazetteers as well as wherever spatial referencing by geographic identifiers is used.
ISO 19113:2002—Quality Principles;
ISO 19114:2003—Quality Evaluation Procedures
Esri implements the concepts in these standards in its Mapping and Charting solution products and in its database production services.
ISO 19115:2003—MetadataEsri implements this standard with the ArcGIS for Server Geoportal extension and in ArcGIS for Desktop. Esri products implement several major profiles of this standard: North American Profile, Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe (INSPIRE), and the complete ISO 19115. Esri played a lead role in supporting the development of this standard and is leading the new revision project.
ISO 19118:2005—EncodingEsri used the concepts defined in this standard while leading the development of SF-GML and ISO 19139.
ISO 19119:2005—ServicesEsri is using the concepts defined in this standard in its implementation of the OGC W*S specifications.
ISO 19123:2005—Schema for Coverage GeometryEsri uses the concepts defined in this standard for exchanging and interfacing with several raster, matrix, and TIN structures.
ISO 19125:2004—Simple Feature Access—Parts 1-2Esri implements this standard with ArcSDE technology and ArcGIS for Desktop. Esri played a lead role in supporting the development of this standard.
ISO 19128:2005—Web Map Server InterfaceEsri supports this standard in both its server and client implementations. From an implementation perspective, this is equivalent to the OGC WMS 1.3 specification.
ISO 19136:2007—Geography Markup LanguageEsri implements this standard in ArcGIS and in using the Data Interoperability extension. This is equivalent to OGC GML 3.2.1.
ISO 19139:2007—Metadata: XML Schema ImplementationEsri implements this standard with the ArcGIS for Server Geoportal extension, and ArcGIS for Desktop supports the import, export, and validation of metadata according to this standard.
