  1. The notion of an observation as used in O&M comes originally from Geography Markup Language which introduced an Observation as the ”act of observing”. O&M clarified these notions further and provided specific sub-types for Observation Results.

    • Thanks for the background info about the relationship of GML and O&M observations. I knew that GML also has a model for observations, but i think it’s not used that much. Maybe that’s because, as you said, O&M has a more detailed data model for this purpose.
