Hi all,

I am still working my way through all the recent activity on this group so
apologies if this issue has already been discussed. One requirement
Ordnance Survey has in its administrative geography linked data (
http://data.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/datasets/boundary-line) is to specify
different geometries. In this case we have two: a 'representative point'
and an 'extent'. So I was wondering if we should create a few subproperties
of locn:geometry for a few common geometry types, e.g. "hasCentroid" [1],
"boundary", "extent", "representativePoint", "mbr" etc.

Thoughts?

John

[1] for some value of "hasCentroid"
