Hopefully this diagram will make explicit some of the CRS considerations that MapML is trying to address:


Sorry its not a responsive image!

There are other changes to the spec, certainly not all of which are implemented yet, but you should have a look and please let me know if you see errors or have comments.


Of particular note is that I think the input@type=xmin,ymin,xmax,ymax and projection are no longer needed, so I've marked them as deprecated.  The bounds related inputs can be
accomplished with input@type=location + related attribute values and input@type=projection can be accomplished with input@type=hidden.

Anyway there's lots worth discussion there.  Open an issue or discuss here.

Cheers, and thanks,
