Ah, I understand. Yes, starting with topological relationships could be a good idea. An ontology has to start somewhere, and if it is possible to start without touching the difficult subject of coordinate systems perhaps starting there could make a good beginning.

A good source of information on that topic seems to be [Topological Relationships and Their Use](http://pure.tudelft.nl/ws/files/9022748/TopologicalRelationshipsTheirUse.pdf), which describes 69 different relationships in 1,2 or 3 dimensions.

As for relative proximity of nodes in a network: isn't graph theory essentially non-spatial? I know graphs are used for spatial problems, but does that warrant inclusion in a spatial ontology?
