  • referencePoint: describes where the spot location used to position the switch is pointing (obligatory; xs:string)
Possible values:
  • switchBegin: useful when creating schematic track plans, but exists only "virtual"
  • switchCenter: the point, where the branching starts, which is easy to determine outside in the field,

  • tangentLength: distance between switch begin and switch center; tangent length of the switch or switch crossing (obligatory; xs:decimal)
