labels, after spaces and forbiddden characters are removed. When the srsName attribute is included, this attribute is
optional.
When the srsName attribute is omitted, this attribute shall also be omitted.
This attribute is included for backward compatibility with GML 2 and is deprecated with GML 3.
This identifer is superceded by "gml:id" inherited from AbstractGMLType. The attribute "gid" should not be used
anymore and may be deleted in future versions of GML without further notice.
Database handle for the object. It is of XML type ID, so is constrained to be unique in the XML document within which it
occurs. An external identifier for the object in the form of a URI may be constructed using standard XML and XPointer methods.
This is done by concatenating the URI for the document, a fragment separator, and the value of the id attribute.
The "srsDimension" is the length of coordinate sequence (the number of entries in the list). This dimension is
specified by the coordinate reference system. When the srsName attribute is omitted, this attribute shall be omitted.
In general this reference points to a CRS instance of gml:CoordinateReferenceSystemType
(see coordinateReferenceSystems.xsd). For well known references it is not required that the CRS description exists at
the
location the URI points to. If no srsName attribute is given, the CRS must be specified as part of the larger context

Annotations
The "_CurveSegment" element is the abstract head of the substituition group for all curve segment elements, i.e. continuous
segments of the same interpolation mechanism.
The attribute "numDerivativesInterior" specifies the type of continuity that is guaranteed interior to the curve. The default
value of "0" means simple continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0
" in mathematical texts. A value of 1 means that the function and its first derivative are continuous at the appropriate end
point: "C 1 " continuity. A value of "n" for any integer means the function and its first n derivatives are continuous: "C
n " continuity.
NOTE: Use of these values is only appropriate when the basic curve definition is an underdetermined system. For example, line
string segments cannot support continuity above C 0 , since there is no spare control parameter to adjust the incoming angle
at the end points of the segment. Spline functions on the other hand often have extra degrees of freedom on end segments that
allow them to adjust the values of the derivatives to support C 1 or higher continuity.
The attribute "numDerivativesAtEnd" specifies the type of continuity between this curve segment and its successor. If this
is the last curve segment in the curve, one of these values, as appropriate, is ignored. The default value of "0" means simple
continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0 " in mathematical texts. A
value of 1 means that the function and its first derivative are continuous at the appropriate end point: "C 1 " continuity.
A value of "n" for any integer means the function and its first n derivatives are continuous: "C n " continuity.
NOTE: Use of these values is only appropriate when the basic curve definition is an underdetermined system. For example, line
string segments cannot support continuity above C 0 , since there is no spare control parameter to adjust the incoming angle

The attribute "numDerivativesAtStart" specifies the type of continuity between this curve segment and its predecessor. If
this is the first curve segment in the curve, one of these values, as appropriate, is ignored. The default value of "0" means
simple continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0 " in mathematical texts.

The bulge controls the offset of each arc's midpoint. The "bulge" is the real number multiplier for the normal that determines
the offset direction of the midpoint of each arc. The length of the bulge sequence is exactly 1 less than the length of the
control point array, since a bulge is needed for each pair of adjacent points in the control point array. The bulge is not
given by a distance, since it is simply a multiplier for the normal.
The midpoint of the resulting arc is given by: midPoint = ((startPoint + endPoint)/2.0) + bulge*normal

The attribute "normal" is a vector normal (perpendicular) to the chord of the arc, the line joining the first and last
point of the arc. In a 2D coordinate system, there are only two possible directions for the normal, and it is often given
as a signed real, indicating its length, with a positive sign indicating a left turn angle from the chord line, and a negative
sign indicating a right turn from the chord. In 3D, the normal determines the plane of the arc, along with the start and endPoint
of the arc.
The normal is usually a unit vector, but this is not absolutely necessary. If the normal is a zero vector, the geometric object
becomes equivalent to the straight line between the two end points. The length of the normal sequence is exactly the same
as for the bulge sequence, 1 less than the control point sequence length.

continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0 " in mathematical texts. A
value of 1 means that the function and its first derivative are continuous at the appropriate end point: "C 1 " continuity.
A value of "n" for any integer means the function and its first n derivatives are continuous: "C n " continuity.
NOTE: Use of these values is only appropriate when the basic curve definition is an underdetermined system. For example, line
string segments cannot support continuity above C 0 , since there is no spare control parameter to adjust the incoming angle
at the end points of the segment. Spline functions on the other hand often have extra degrees of freedom on end segments that
allow them to adjust the values of the derivatives to support C 1 or higher continuity.
The attribute "numDerivativesAtStart" specifies the type of continuity between this curve segment and its predecessor. If
this is the first curve segment in the curve, one of these values, as appropriate, is ignored. The default value of "0" means
simple continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0 " in mathematical texts.
A value of 1 means that the function and its first derivative are continuous at the appropriate end point: "C 1 " continuity.

The bulge controls the offset of each arc's midpoint. The "bulge" is the real number multiplier for the normal that determines
the offset direction of the midpoint of each arc. The length of the bulge sequence is exactly 1 less than the length of the
control point array, since a bulge is needed for each pair of adjacent points in the control point array. The bulge is not
given by a distance, since it is simply a multiplier for the normal.
The midpoint of the resulting arc is given by: midPoint = ((startPoint + endPoint)/2.0) + bulge*normal

The attribute "normal" is a vector normal (perpendicular) to the chord of the arc, the line joining the first and last
point of the arc. In a 2D coordinate system, there are only two possible directions for the normal, and it is often given
as a signed real, indicating its length, with a positive sign indicating a left turn angle from the chord line, and a negative
sign indicating a right turn from the chord. In 3D, the normal determines the plane of the arc, along with the start and endPoint
of the arc.
The normal is usually a unit vector, but this is not absolutely necessary. If the normal is a zero vector, the geometric object
becomes equivalent to the straight line between the two end points. The length of the normal sequence is exactly the same
as for the bulge sequence, 1 less than the control point sequence length.

value of "0" means simple continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0
" in mathematical texts. A value of 1 means that the function and its first derivative are continuous at the appropriate end
point: "C 1 " continuity. A value of "n" for any integer means the function and its first n derivatives are continuous: "C
n " continuity.
NOTE: Use of these values is only appropriate when the basic curve definition is an underdetermined system. For example, line
string segments cannot support continuity above C 0 , since there is no spare control parameter to adjust the incoming angle
at the end points of the segment. Spline functions on the other hand often have extra degrees of freedom on end segments that
allow them to adjust the values of the derivatives to support C 1 or higher continuity.
The attribute "numDerivativesAtEnd" specifies the type of continuity between this curve segment and its successor. If this
is the last curve segment in the curve, one of these values, as appropriate, is ignored. The default value of "0" means simple
continuity, which is a mandatory minimum level of continuity. This level is referred to as "C 0 " in mathematical texts. A
value of 1 means that the function and its first derivative are continuous at the appropriate end point: "C 1 " continuity.
A value of "n" for any integer means the function and its first n derivatives are continuous: "C n " continuity.
