Abstract

This paper introduces G-XML, which is a format for exchanging geographic information using XML. In the process of developing G-XML, the idea of using SVG as background maps for mostly mobile devices was suggested. That idea led us to produce the specification of G-XML over SVG, which is known as GoSVG. The newest version of G-XML includes the specification of GoSVG. This paper is related to GoSVG.
