A SpatialEntity is part of a soil description. <br /></p><p>It provides a link between a notional feature (description package) and one spatial representation of it, or part of it.

Notes: Spatial representation (geometry)
Public SpatialObservationMethodTerm
  observationMethod
Details:
inlineOrByReference=byReference
isMetadata=false
sequenceNumber=1
Notes: SpatialEntity observationMethod is a metadata snippet indicating how the spatial extent of the mapped feature was determined. ObservationMethod is a convenience property that provides a quick and dirty approach to observation metadata when data are reported using a feature view (as opposed to observation view). This property corresponds (loosely) to ISO19115 Lineage.  (eg: digitised, Global Positioning System, published map, field observation,  aerial photography, field survey
Public DQ_PositionalAccuracy
  positionalAccuracy
Details:
inlineOrByReference=inline
isMetadata=false
sequenceNumber=3
Notes: Quantitative values define the radius of an uncertainty buffer around a mappedFeature (eg: a positionAccuracy of 100 m for a line feature defines a buffer polygon of total width 200 m centred on the line). Corresponds to ISO19115 DQ_PositionalAccuracy.
Public MD_RepresentativeFraction
  resolutionScale
Details:
inlineOrByReference=inline
isMetadata=false
sequenceNumber=4
Notes: Reciprocal of equivalent scale of resolution for delineation of a feature's geometry. This is in contrast to positionalAccuracy which is a measure of how well a feature is located relative to other features in the geographic reference system.
