there are now three different versions/properties to describe geo locations: 

1. http://dbpedia.org/page/Leipzig uses 

dbpprop:latDeg, latMin, latSec etc. 
2. http://dbpedia.org/page/Berlin uses (good old)

geo:lat, geo:long 	
3. http://dbpedia.org/page/Paris uses
dbpprop:latLong redirect to dbpedia :Paris/latLong/coord 

Our PoolParty [1] application made use of version 2.

How will the Linked Data community handle this kind of problems in the future?
If changes in already widely used schemata are made, this causes several problems.

Best wishes,
