Annotation
In some applications of geographic information — such as geology and archaeology — relative position in time is known more precisely than absolute time or duration. The order of events in time can be well established, but the magnitude of the intervals between them cannot be accurately determined; in such cases, the use of an ordinal temporal reference system is appropriate. An ordinal temporal reference system is composed of a sequence of named coterminous eras, which may in turn be composed of sequences of member eras at a finer scale, giving the whole a hierarchical structure of eras of verying resolution. An ordinal temporal reference system whose component eras are not further subdivided is effectively a temporal topological complex constrained to be a linear graph. An ordinal temporal reference system some or all of whose component eras are subdivided is effectively a temporal topological complex with the constraint that parallel branches may only be constructed in pairs where one is a single temporal ordinal era and the other is a sequence of temporal ordinal eras that are called "members" of the "group". This constraint means that within a single temporal ordinal reference system, the relative position of all temporal ordinal eras is unambiguous. The positions of the beginning and end of a given era may calibrate the relative time scale. gml:TimeOrdinalReferenceSystem adds one or more gml:component properties to the generic temporal reference system model.

This XML schema documentation has been generated with DocFlex/XML 1.11 using DocFlex/XML XSDDoc 2.8.3 template set.
DocFlex/XML is a tool for programming and running highly sophisticated documentation and reports generators by the data obtained from any kind of XML files. The actual doc-generators are implemented in the form of special templates that are designed visually using a high-quality Template Designer GUI basing on the XML schema (or DTD) files describing the data source XML.
DocFlex/XML XSDDoc is a commercial template application of DocFlex/XML that implements a high-quality XML Schema documentation generator with simultaneous support of framed multi-file HTML, single-file HTML and RTF output formats. (More formats are planned in the future).
A commercial license for "DocFlex/XML XSDDoc" will allow you:
  • To configure the generated documentation so much as you want. Thanks to our template technology, it was possible to support > 400 template parameters, which work the same as "options" of ordinary doc-generators. The parameters are organized in nested groups, which form a parameter tree. Most of them have their default values calculated dynamically from a few primary parameters. So, you'll never need to specify all of them. That will give you swift and effective control over the generated content!
  • To use certain features disabled in the free mode (such as the full documenting of substitution groups).
  • To select only the initial, imported, included, redefined XML schemas to be documented or only those directly specified by name.
  • To include only XML schema components specified by name.
  • To document local element components both globally and locally (similar to attributes).
  • To allow/suppress unification of local elements by type.
  • To enable/disable reproducing of namespace prefixes.
  • To use PlainDoc.tpl main template to generate all the XML schema documentation in a signle-file form as both HTML and incredible quality RTF output.
  • To format your annotations with XHTML tags and reproduce that formatting both in HTML and RTF output.
  • To insert images in your annotations using XHTML <img> tags (supported both in HTML and RTF output).
  • To remove this very advertisement text!
Once having only such a license, you will be able to run the fully-featured XML schema documentation generator both with DocFlex/XML (Full Edition) and with DocFlex/XML RE, which is a reduced free edition containing only the template interpretor / output generator. No other licenses will be required!
But this is not all. In addition to it, a commercial license for "DocFlex/XML SDK" will allow you to modify the XSDDoc templates themselves as much as you want. You will be able to achieve whatever was impossible to do with the template parameters only. And, of course, you could develop any template applications by your own!
Please note that by purchasing a license for this software, you not only acquire a useful tool, you will also make an important investment in its future development, the results of which you could enjoy later by yourself. Every single your purchase matters and makes a difference for us!
