[dxwg] Revisiting use cases for spatial resolution (#1266)

andrea-perego has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/dxwg:

== Revisiting use cases for spatial resolution ==
DCAT2 has defined a property `dcat:spatialResolutionInMeters` that can be used to express (as the property name says) spatial resolution as distance in metres.

There are however other "types" of spatial resolution, which cannot be expressed with this property, so the question is whether (at least some of) these other types should be supported in DCAT.

One is the use case reported in https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/1263 , about the possibility of specifying spatial resolution based on, e.g., levels of administrative units (e.g., country, region, province, city).

Another one was raised in https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/84 - see discussion starting at https://github.com/w3c/dxwg/issues/84#issuecomment-467218038 -, about the support for equivalent scale (e.g., 1:1,000).

Other examples includes angular distance (expressed in degrees), horizontal ground distance, and vertical distance.
