@mathib Perhaps the approach that seems to be happening in environmental science, in particular weather and climate, may be a useful model. There was a peripheral discussion in the SDW WG  involving @rob-metalinkage. In essence, the existing **data** silos  stay in their local, compact, binary, efficient formats, surrounded by their domain-specific tool ecosystems and domain experts, because no-one is going to retro-convert that enormous amount of data, at great expense and disruption into more voluminous data serializations. But, the metadata describing that data, including how it can be queried and reasoned about, should migrate into the semantic linked web world.
So I suggest an approach that does not expend effort on yet more geometry format conversion tools, or one format to rule them all, but work in the metadata/catalogue/vocabulary/ontology area to automate invocation of the existing tools correctly.
HTH, Chris
