|Definitionskos:definition||This Engineering Report discusses the approach of Map Markup Language (MapML) and Map for HyperText Markup Language (Map4HTML) described in: https://github.com/Maps4HTML and supported by the community in https://www.w3.org/community/maps4html/. The objective of MapML is to define a hypermedia type for geospatial maps on the web that can be embedded in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) pages. MapML is needed because while Web browsers implement HTML and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), including the element, those implementations do not meet the requirements of the broader Web mapping community. The semantics of the HTML map element are incomplete or insufficient relative to modern Web maps and mapping in general. Currently, robust web maps are implemented by a variety of non-standard technologies. Web maps do not work without script support, making their creation a job beyond the realm of beginners' skill sets. In order to improve collaboration and integration of the mapping and Web communities, it is desirable to enhance or augment the functionality of the element in HTML to include the accessible user interface functions of modern web maps (e.g. panning, zooming, searching for, and zooming to, styling, identifying features properties, etc.), while maintaining a simple, declarative, accessible interface for HTML authors.The objective of this Engineering Report is to explore how MapML can be harmonized with the OGC standards mainstream and contribute to the progress of the specification avoiding unnecessary duplication. In particular, the ER proposes Web Map Service (WMS) or Web Map Tile Service (WMTS) as services that can be used to deliver MapML documents with small modifications.Another consideration on the ER is the inclusion of the time dimension and directions operation in MapML.|
