gco:Distance
This is a prototypical definition for a specific measure type defined as a vacuous extension (i.e. aliases) of gml:MeasureType. In this case, the content model supports the description of a length (or distance) quantity, with its units. The unit of measure referenced by uom shall be suitable for a length, such as metres or feet.
