Catalogs in MapForce
MapForce supports a subset of the OASIS XML catalogs mechanism. The catalog mechanism enables MapForce to retrieve commonly used schemas (as well as other files) from local user folders. This increases the overall processing speed, enables users to work offline (that is, not connected to a network), and improves the portability of documents (because URIs would then need to be changed only in the catalog files.)
The catalog mechanism in MapForce works as outlined in this section:
