Feature means an identifiable set of information. A feature may have attributes and may be related to other features. A digital representation of all or a part of an entity by its characteristics (attributes), its geometry, and (optionally) its relationships to other features (e.g. the digital description of a light sector specifying, amongst others, sector limits, the colour of the light, the visibility range, etc. and a link to a light tower, if any).
