Hi Frans,

I have just had a talk with a web developer on the best way of making the extent of a spatial data set known, in a Linked Data context. It is useful to know the spatial extent of a data set because that way a map can be zoomed in on the right patch of Earth.


I would like to throw in an example of some data and metadata used to described it which I use on a day-to-day basis.
The data is from Landsat 7s Enhanced Thematic Mapper (ETM+) instrument and is in HDF4-EOS manifestation with the XML metadata looking like the paste of XML at the end of this message.
You will see the <bounding_coordinates> node but will also note that image corner locations are defined within the <corner> nodes with referenced locations being provisioned for UL (upper left) and LR (lower right) respectively.
Im enjoying seeing the wealth of vocabulary choices being provided by the group, so I wanted to make sure that my use case is also considered.
Thanks
