Hi Paolo,

While I'm happy with using the geo ontology, I'm not sure that geo:location
is the right predicate to use with the Annotation, given the collapsing of
the annotation document/concept.  Is it the annotating or serializing
activity, in PROV terms, which the location is referring to?

The ontology defines geo:location as:
    "The relation between something and the point, or other geometrical
thing in space, where it is."

I'm not sure that the location of the annotator at the time they created
the annotation concept is "where it [the annotation] is."  That seems more
like the location of the storage system (annotation as document) or just
not a point in space (annotation as a concept).

Could you explain how you would see the mapping into the PROV model?
