I'll try to take a proper look. First question ... it mentions ISO 19109,

"NeoGeo (proposed) consists of a root property _featureproperty which 
takes as its domain any OWL/RDF class that it makes sense (after ISO 
19109) to cast as a geographic feature."

Is ISO 19109 freely available? If not, could someone summarise? The W3C 
"basic geo" vocab defined a class "spatial thing", which seems to be in 
a similar role. But we didn't go into much detail about what we 
considered that to exactly amount to. Could the domain of 
"featureproperty" be basicgeo:SpatialThing, for example?

I can't currently get to http://mapbureau.com/neogeo/neogeo.owl and the 
host doesn't seem to respond to pings.

cheers,

Dan
