A special category of feature that represents a collection of features that have common metadata and formal relationships. "A set of related features managed as a group. Feature collections can be identified at different abstraction levels, i.e. high abstraction level, e.g. "topography" and low abstraction level, e.g. "roads". The terms feature, feature collection and coverage are defined in line with OpenGIS 5."
