[GeoSciML] Borehole-Portrayal [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

having uom as a field is a real pain for users.  Every filter or SLD must take this into account because it implies there can be mixed uom.

this is annoying:

(boreholeLength > 10 AND boreholeLength_uom = 'm')
(boreholeLength > 32.42 AND boreholeLength_uom = 'ft.')

it gets even worse when you need to combine with other uom because it becomes a n x m problem.

I know, provider will stick to a single unit. But if it does, why this field ? just document what uom is used somewhere else (like how you documented inclinationType) and keep them consistent (positionalAccuracy must be in meter if depth and elevation are in meter)

my two cents...

Hi all,

Geoscience Australia would like to try and formalize a Borehole simple feature WFS and WMS standard, similar to GeologicUnitView, ContactView, and ShearDisplacementStructureView in GeoSciML-Portrayal v2.

I have attached a proposed structure, based on the existing  xxxView classes and work done in the AuScope project and at ESRI earlier this year.

Comments please.
