  43. 43. 43<br />It’s Time For An Open Database Of Places<br />“Here is the problem: These efforts at creating an underlying database of places are duplicative, and any competitive advantage any single company gets from being more comprehensive than the rest will be short-lived at best. It is time for an open database of places which all companies and developers can both contribute to and borrow from. But in order for such a database to be useful, the biggest and fastest-growing Geo companies need to contribute to it.”<br />http://techcrunch.com/2010/04/17/open-database-places/<br />

  71. 71. 71<br />Location<br />“The term location is used to refer to a geographical construct, a physically fixed point, typically on the surface of the Earth (relative to WGS-84), though locations can be relative to another coordinate system. Locations can be a single point, a centroid, a minimum bounding rectangle, or a set of vectors. A location should be persistent over time and does not change.”<br />
  72. 72. 72<br />Points Of Interest<br />“Unlike the term location, the term POI is a human construct. POIs describe information about locations such as name, category, unique identifier, or civic address.”<br />
  73. 73. 73<br />Place<br />“A place is also a human construct which typically has a coarse level of spatial granularity. Places are generally larger scale administrative constructs, either informally or formally defined. Countries, states, counties, districts, neighborhoods and postal codes or telephone area codes are all places. Places are also informally or colloquially defined, such as the Home Counties in the United Kingdom and the Bay Area in the United States.<br />Places have spatial relationships; with parents, children, adjacencies and contained by semantics. Places also have the same attribute set as POIs, although with differing interpretations based on scale; for example, the address of a Place or its URI would refer to the address of the administrative or governing body of the place.<br />A place typically contains multiple POIs and can also be coterminous with a POI. In the former case, a place, such as a city or a neighborhood, will contain multiple POIs. In the latter case, a place and a POI will occupy the same position and extent, such as in the case of Yellowstone National Park, which is both a Place and a POI.”<br />
