Sorry, those are the only variants currently available.

I'll pass along a suggestion to the team to add others.

I believe that the concepts in FAST are all free-standing. For example, here is the FAST identifier for the concept of cemeteries:

If someone wanted to claim that a book was schema:about a more complex notion like "cemeteries in NYC", there could presumably be two choices:
- Simple/simplistic: repeat the schema:about property for each component
or
- Fussy/complicated: coin a new concept that was skos:narrower than the FAST concept and relate that to a particular place (or time or person or organization or ...) using some kind of property like (schema:location).

I realize that schema:location doesn't currently have a schema:domainIncludes that resembles Concept, but it seems like it could.

Jeff,

Is there a JSON format for the fast views ?  I only see MARC and RDF.
