A continuous coverage as defined in ISO 19123 is a coverage that can return different values for the same feature attribute at different direct positions within a single spatiotemporal object in its spatiotemporal domain. The base type for continuous coverages is AbstractContinuousCoverageType.
The coverageFunction element describes the mapping function. 
The abstract element gml:AbstractContinuousCoverage serves as the head of a substitution group which may contain any continuous coverage whose type is derived from gml:AbstractContinuousCoverageType.
