Hi Bruce

Just cleaning up the last little bits on the model so we can generate a new set of schemas.  I noticed this outstanding GeoSciML Trac job (#2) of yours....

For ShearDisplacementStructures?<https://projects.arcs.org.au/trac/geosciml/wiki/ShearDisplacementStructures> the UML has: SeparationValue:separation = reported apparent offset of planar feature, report as vector.

However separation in the Geology Glossary (Bates & Jackson) has:
"The distance between any two parts of an index plane disrupted by a fault (also horizontal separation; vertical separation; vertical separation)". This is not really a CGI_Vector datatype, but a magnitude with (apparent) separation type.

I suggest for GeoSciML version RC3.0 we replace the SeparationValue:separation property with SeparationValue:magnitude (data type CGI_NumericRange) and add a property SeparationValue:separationType with a data type SeparationTypeCode?<https://projects.arcs.org.au/trac/geosciml/wiki/SeparationTypeCode> with a CodeList?<https://projects.arcs.org.au/trac/geosciml/wiki/CodeList> of:
'horizontal separation',
'dextral horizontal separation',
'sinistral horizontal separation',
'vertical separation'
'reverse separation',
'normal separation',
'stratigraphic separation'
No problems to change the CGI_Vector to a magnitude.

Question:  Is the MovementSense attribute on the parent DisplacementValue class not already sufficient to describe your proposed SeparationType?
