Discussion Forum 3 - General feature types and categories - was initiated by conference paper Feature Types for Global Gazetteers (Laura Kostanski et al., Australia) submitted to the Technical Committee IV session of the 10th UNCSGN (see attachments).

The paper describes the many challenges of developing global classifications for named features and requests the WG TDFG to further discuss these issues thus feeding into the larger UN Spatial Data Infrastructure initiative (UNSDI) driven by the UN Geographic Information Working Group (UNGIWG).

The paper should provide a comprehensive introduction and basis for all discussions within this forum.

Three sub-sites have been created in order to better structure the discussions. Each sub-site has a short introduction and some initial questions/topics to be discussed. The sub-sites are:

F3.1 General discussion
F3.1-Q1: What are the biggest challenges in developing global classifications with respect to different feature aspects?
F3.1-Q2: With regard to feature identity and classification, how do named features (e.g. in gazetteers) differ from spatial objects in general (e.g. in GISs)?
F3.1-Q3: Who should be in charge of the development and hosting of a possible new global feature classification and which procedures should be followed in the development?
F3.1-Q4: Do you have general or other questions or comments to this sub-site General discussion?
F3.2 Requirements and use cases
F3.2-Q1: Can you list or describe use cases for an appropriate global classification for named features?
F3.2-Q2: What are the most important requirements for global feature classifications?
F3.2-Q3: There may be different requirements for different use cases. How should this be solved?
F3.2-Q4: Do you know good practices or have a proposal for a global feature classification that would meet (at least partly) the given requirements?
F3.2-Q5: Do you have general or other questions or comments to this sub-site Requirements and use cases?
F3.3 Reference materials and classifications


The discussions will be monitored and streamlined by two co-moderators.

The conference paper Feature Types for Global Gazetteers (Laura Kostanski et al., Australia) helps to commence investigations within the WG TDFG. The paper and translated summaries in the 6 UN languages are uploaded to this site and can be commented.
