Dear group and especially the BP editors,

In the meeting two weeks ago the question was raised if there could be a
good candidate for a best practice that might serve as a test case on how
best practices can be described in the BP document.

After some thought (and admittedly, mostly forgetting about it), I would
like to suggest *spatial resolution*. It is not a separate requirement, but
it is one of the metadata elements that is listed in the Spatial metadata
requirement
<http://w3c.github.io/sdw/UseCases/SDWUseCasesAndRequirements.html#SpatialMetadata>
.

I think that finding a best practice for spatial resolution could be a
reasonably isolated endeavour, it does not seem to rely much on other
(thorny) best practices such a geometry encoding or CRS. Moreover,
GeoDCAT-AP <https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/node/139283/> describes semantics
for spatial resolution as having no candidates in the semantic web, so if a
best practice is found it can immediately be put to use.

I should also note that an extension to the Location Core vocabulary (LOCN)
<http://www.w3.org/ns/locn> was suggested to provide semantics for spatial
resolution, so this is also an opportunity to cooperate with other
communities. For example, SDDWG could urge LOCADD
<https://www.w3.org/community/locadd/> to finalize the spatial resolution
extension to the LOCN vocabulary and validate the solution against
requirements for spatial data on the web.

Regards,
Frans
