- All Known Implementing Classes:
public interface TemporalReferenceSystem extends ReferenceSystemProvides information about a temporal reference system.
This interface is similar to ReferenceSytem and may be deprecated in the future. It is made available currently in order to *exactly* match this ISO 19108 specification with a "domain of validity" association to an Extent.

All Methods Instance Methods Abstract Methods Modifier and Type Method Description
getDomainOfValidity()Identifies the space and time within which the reference system is applicable.
getName()Provides a name that uniquely identifies the temporal referece system.
ReferenceIdentifier getName()Provides a name that uniquely identifies the temporal referece system.
Currently returns MD_Identifier, which is defined in ISO 19115, while ISO 19108 requires that RS_Identifier (defined in ISO 19111 and http://www.opengis.org/docs/03-073r1.zip) is returned. From the looks of it, org.geotools.api.referencing.ReferenceSystem could also fit the bill.
Extent getDomainOfValidity()Identifies the space and time within which the reference system is applicable. The return type allows for describing both spatial and temporal extent. This attribute shall be used whenever an application schema includes
TemporalPositions referenced to a reference system which has a valid extent that is less than the extent of a data set containing such values.
Please note this is very similar to ReferenceSystem.getValidArea() from ISO 19115.
