Comments about Observations and Measurement related to:

- Section: Publishing Statistical Data
- http://www.w3.org/2011/gld/track/issues/32
- @@TODO: Are there any statements about compatibility and interoperability between O&M and Data Cube that can be made to give guidance to such organizations?

Suggest to use Observations and Measurements (OM) model.

An Observation is an event whose result is an estimate of the value of some property of a feature of interest, obtained using a specified procedure.

An Observation has essentially the following parts:

Procedure: e.g. person, sensor, observatory, model, macro.
Property: e.g. temperature, color, weight.
Feature of Interest: e.g. body, world, Washington DC, banana, specimen 123, Monterey Bay.
Result: The actual value. Includes categories and quantities results, time series, multimedia (video, audio), one single value, a file, etc.

So in the figure: "Modeling quantity, measurement, observation" we can do the following:

Add Procedure, Result, Feature of Interest and Property
Model Person as a type of Procedure
Remove Measurement
Category and Quantity are subclass of result.
Phenomenon Type is same as Property
