   GPSml first public version posted.

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi all: 

I decided to post an early release of the GPSml XMLSchema for GPS (Global 
Position System) information to allow some feedback. 

GPSml V0.5 is now available at http://www.chaeron.com/gps 

The design goals for GPSml are: 

- Be an XML format for all GPS-generated data, both real-time position related 
data and collections (such as waypoints, tracks, routes) 

- Be easy to generate in software, even apps without XML understanding. 

- Be easy for modern XML parsers to parse and feed in to applications. 

- Let a single file contain real-time position information and arbitrary collections 
(such as waypoints, tracks, routes) 

- Scale gracefully to handle both simple and complex requirements 

- Be flexible and extensible since the GPS arena is evolving rapidly 

- Follow current XMLSchema best practices (where known) 

The distribution contains a detailed readme file, XMLSpy generated 
documentation and the full GPSml schema. It also contains sample instance 
documents that were generated by the open-source Chaeron Java-based 
GPS Access Library demo program (also at http://www.chaeron.com/gps )

Keep in mind that this is a very early draft and so is a bit rough around the 
edges and not complete yet. 

Any/all feedback is much appreciated......I'ld like to know if I am going down 
the right path with the design....
