  1. 1. CRS and SVG Satoru Takagi , SVGWG
  2. 2. I am a engineer who have been developing Geographic Information Systems and Web Mapping Systems which used SVG for about fifteen years. Self-introduction And I am taking charge of the standardization in SVGWG mainly concerning Mapping. Moreover, I was involved also with de-jure standardization of GML in Japan, and a development of the RDF vocabulary for geospatial information. http://svg2.mbsrv.net/devinfo/devkddi/lvl0.1/
  3. 3. My interest is fusion of graphics on web and geographic information. In particular, it is a map contents as a graphics. It is because a lot of map contents are on the web. This document will search for the gap between such a graphics and geographic information. The aim of this slide
  4. 4. Graphics A Graphics B User Coordinate System A User Coordinate System B Unrelated Graphic Contents On mere graphics contents, each contents are usually unrelated. Therefore, these coordinate systems are also individual and unrelated. In SVG, such coordinate systems are called User Coordinate System.
  5. 5. Coordinate Reference System : EPSG:3857 Geographic Information System A Geographic Information System B Geographic Information System C Geographic Information Systems for instance Geographic information systems has CRS. Since common well known CRS is shared by multiple GIS, we can make these cooperate, such as layering. (CRS)
  6. 6. Coordinate Reference System : EPSG:3857 Geographic Information Systems for instance Even if different CRS are used among GIS, we can still cooperate by CRS transformation. EPSG:3995 EPSG:4326 EPSG:326xx CRS Transformation
  7. 7. Unrelated User Coordinate System A User Coordinate System B User Coordinate System B Map content A Map content B Map content C Map Contents On the other hand, there is no concept of CRS on mere map contents. Since it is a kind of graphics contents eventually. Therefore, we cannot make these cooperate. The map contents by SVG are also in the same situation basically.
  8. 8. Geographic Coordinate Systems Section on SVG1.1 http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/coords.html#GeographicCoordinates Meanwhile, there is specification concerning CRS in SVG1.1. It is the specification for embedding geospatial coordinate system information as metadata into map contents. Accordingly, it allows to regard map contents also as geographic information. It could be called one of the styles of Spatial Data on the Web.
  9. 9. User Coordinate System A User Coordinate System B User Coordinate System C Map content A Map content B Map content C svg:transform svg:transform svg:transform Coordinate Reference System : EPSG:3857 Geographic coordinate Systems Metadata on SVG1.1 for instance That metadata is constituted by CRS of the source geographic information used on the map generation process, and its coordinate transformation factor to User Coordinate System of the map content.

  11. 11. ISSUE • It is too flexible and complicated by RDF/XML. • Browsers provides no functions which used it, since it is mere metadata. • It is still future that SVG is widely used for map contents. Nobody is using it. That specification will be removed in SVG2. And it is under re-examination. The person in charge is me. https://svgwg.org/svg2-draft/ https://svgwg.org/specs/transform/
  12. 12. Our Directivity of re-examination In order to promote SVG map contents with CRS, • Markup should be simpler. • Browsers should have certain convenient native functions using CRS. In order to promote Browser implementations, • The concept of CRS should be generalized. • Such functions using CRS should be general-purpose not only for spatial information and mapping. Because standardization of multiuse functions is welcomed for web browsers. http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/2014/new-charter See also SVGWG’s charter
  13. 13. Generalized CRS concept? My thought: Generalized CRS is the concept of a certain coordinate system which multiple contents or systems share. There may be a variety of shared coordinate systems. Therefore, it intends that it is declared on a content or a system so that it may be known by the others what coordinate system is used. The coordinate transformation among different CRS is a extended concept according to a case such as geo- graphical. Is it acceptable for geo guys? Should another name for this concept be attached?
  14. 14. General-purpose functions by CRS
  15. 15. Layering Gemini2DIllustration Caption Layer Marker Layer Sketch Layer CRS = “Gemini2DIllustration” CRS = “Gemini2DIllustration” CRS = “Gemini2DIllustration” CRS = “Gemini2DIllustration” Layering shares a common coordinate system among layers.
  16. 16. CRS = “ZoomableWireFrameIllustration” CRS = “ZoomableWireFrameIllustration” CRS = “ZoomableWireFrameIllustration” CRS = “ZoomableWireFrameIllustration” Hi Res. Content Low Res. Content Medium Res. Content The level of detail function shares a common coordinate system among contents of each resolution. Level of Detail
  17. 17. Tiling (High resolution Graphics) See also: Microsoft’s Zoomable High-resolution Photos http://www.microsoft.com/web/solutions/zoomit.aspx Tile1-1 Tile2-1 Tile3-1 Tile4-1 Tile1-2 Tile2-2 Tile3-2 Tile4-2 Tile1-3 Tile2-3 Tile3-3 Tile4-3 Tile1-4 Tile2-4 Tile3-4 Tile4-4 On tiling, each tile graphics share a common coordinate system.
  18. 18. These functions are important also for GIS and Web Mapping. Are there any other general-purpose functions which used CRS?
