ISO/TS 19163-1:2016 classifies imagery and regularly spaced gridded thematic data into types based on attribute property, sensor type and spatial property, and defines an encoding-neutral content model for the required components for each type of data. It also specifies logical data structures and the rules for encoding the content components in the structures.
The binding between the content and a specific encoding format will be defined in the subsequent parts of ISO 19163.
ISO/TS 19163-1:2016 does not address LiDAR, SONAR data and ungeoreferenced gridded data.
The logical data structures and the rules for encoding the content components will be addressed in the subsequent parts of ISO 19163.
