Relationship to relevant (feature) models
HY_Features model has some logical connection points through the related features in the HY_SurfaceWaterBody package: E.g. HY_River, Reach etc. There is also a HY_CrossSection which provides some geometric properties (area) and the reach geometry:
If sections are included in the scope it would be possible to relate some relevant features here.
INSPIRE is similarly focussed on the network structure and topology, but does identify core featuers that are relevant. E.g. water courses, physical features and man-made features (embankments, fords, dams etc.). All these types of objects are able to carry geometries but specifics are not defined.
