Dear all,

the railML use case working group "ETCS" that works on the "ETCS Track
Net" use case (see [1]) suggests to extend the current implementation of
<balise> in railML 3.x in order to fulfill requirements resulting from
ETCS specification.

I summarized the proposed changes in Trac ticket #366 (see [2]).

Please have a look at the proposed changes and let us know your short or
long comments.

In particular, I would like to know your opinion on the following issues:
a) Shall we implement a <balise>@countryID (integer, 0..1023) or shall
we make use of the ISO country code concept instead (see [3])?
b) Shall the location accuracy in <balise>@locationAccuracy (in meters)
be modelled as integer or float?
c) Do you suggest any pattern for storing the ETCS version in attribute

Dear all,

here is my feedback regarding the three issues:
as @countryID, I suggest using NID_C instead, see: www.era.europa.eu/sites/default/files/activities/docs/ertms_ 040001_etcs_variables_values_en.pdf
@locationAccuracy (in meters), I suggest float, because Q_SCALE can be set to 10cm, 0.010m.
@etcsVersion, do you mean M_VERSION?

Best Regards
Henrik Roslund

Dear Henrik, Christian,
reading the SUBSET-026 I noticed that the location accuracy Q_LOCACC is defined as "defines the absolute value of the accuracy of the Balise location (i.e., the value 63m identifies a location accuracy of +/- 63m)" with resolution of 1 m.
If Q_LOCACC is the right value (instead of Q_SCALE) we should probably use integer instead of float.
