In a relational database this includes constraints which determine the validity of data entered. For example, if an attempt was made to create an invoice and a unassigned customer id was used the transaction would fail (you can’t have an invoice which does not have an associated customer). This would also trigger the atomicity feature rolling back the transaction. Isolation ensures that transactions being executed in parallel would result in a final state identical to that which would be arrived at if the transactions were executed serially.

Most importantly it is specified by XML syntax. Once a database is set up using XML it can be queried using a number of languages: • XPath is designed for path expressions and is the basis for the following two languages. • XSLT is a transformation language. It was originally designed to control formatting of XML to HTML but it can be used to generate queries. • XQuery is the current proposed standard for querying XML data. It should be noted that many database management systems including Oracle are compatible with XML and can format output and receive input as XML.

Along with a representation of its shape and location you may also want to store information such as its name and even information about its construction and condition. As well as plotting this object you may want to know its location in relation to service infrastructure such as sewer lines, for example where the road crosses a major sewer or where access points to it are. Despite expecting GISs’ to be object oriented, for the most part they are relational. For example the biggest vendor in this field is ESRI which uses a proprietary relational database called ArcSDE.
