Geo co-ordinates

There are a lot of these already dotted about the existing content. There is a list of some of them in the Echelon page for example with links to Google maps. At one stage I had Google Maps properly installed and had started embedding maps in pages. Then an upgrade broke the extension and I haven't revisited it. I do know that eye-catching and potentially useful stuff is possible with co-ordinates, maps and Semantic Results formats so it is probably worth re-visiting. Probably need both coordinates and place name properties - though of course the places indicated by place names will all have precise coordinates too - Hmmm --Peter P (talk) 20:21, 4 January 2014 (GMT)

More than one Property?

I think we need to have separate properties, one for coordinates, one or two of type page. e.g.

  • event hasLocation place
  • place SubUnitOf place
  • place hasCoords coords

Like the rest of SMW, this may seem fiddly to describe, but if the underlying model is clear, once it's automated, it should work seamlessly. Robin (talk) 01:02, 5 January 2014 (GMT)
