ISO 19144-2:2012 specifies a Land Cover Meta Language (LCML) expressed as a UML metamodel that allows different land cover classification systems to be described based on the physiognomic aspects. ISO 19144-2:2012 also specifies the detailed structure of a register for the extension of LCML but does not specify the maintenance of the register. ISO 19144-2:2012 recognizes that there exist a number of land cover classification systems. It provides a common reference structure for the comparison and integration of data for any generic land cover classification system, but does not intend to replace those classification systems.
