Hi Michael,

Thank you for using a lower-case "n".  My first thought was "Oh {expletive deleted}, here we go again!", but the "n" made me click.  Around-The-Clock News (and Weather && Community Culture) are something entirely different Around-The-Clock data[1,2].  An always-on/off "user" schedule assumption works for appliances, but a cadastral map, even coarse grained, is necessary to prevent encroachment on the personal privacy of human users. A reference from the GPS on an appliance to a cadastral map renders anonymous the "location" of a human appliance user. Also known as "hide in plain sight" :o)

INSPIRE Spatial Things, Spatial Objects, and Theme=CP (Cadastral parcels
) help quite a bit.  The US Library of Congress Country URI (Spatial Things) and Geographic Area URI (Spatial Objects) help too, although a PURL[3] could be used to reconcile LOC-ID and INSPIRE URI formats.

The complete data sets, unfortunately, are very big.  An LDAP "Address Book" tool to hold map fragments off-line is a good idea.  I have US and Australian Weather Stations as a test case in an OpenOffice DB. It's a slow monstrosity and hard to move.  The extracts (with links) are a bit better, but still large files.
