13  mrc:otherProperty  0..1  gco:Record  Instance of otherAttributeType that defines attributes not explicitly included in MD_CoverageType  
14  mrc:bitsPerValue  0..1  gco:Integer  Maximum number of significant bits in the uncompressed representation for the value in each band of each pixel  
15  mrc:rangeElementDescription  0..*  mrc:MI_RangeElementDescription  
16  mrc:boundMax  0..1  gco:Real  
17  mrc:boundMin  0..1  gco:Real  
18  mrc:boundUnits  0..1  gml:UomLength  Mandatory if mrc:boundMax or mrc:boundMin is present.
