@UML(identifier="SC_GeographicCRS", specification=ISO_19111) public interface GeographicCRS extends GeodeticCRS
A Geographic CRS is not suitable for mapmaking on a planar surface, because it describes geometry on a curved surface. It is impossible to represent such geometry in a Euclidean plane without introducing distortions. The need to control these distortions has given rise to the development of the science of map projections.
