5/5 | 6 votes

Description

The Core Location Vocabulary is a simplified, reusable and extensible data model that captures the fundamental characteristics of a location, represented as an address, a geographic name, or a geometry.

Motivation

E-Government Core Vocabularies are the starting point for developing interoperable e-Government systems as it allows mappings with existing data models. This guarantees Public Administrations to attain cross-border and cross-sector interoperability.  Please refer to the eGovernment Core Vocabularies paper on the approach and benefits of Core Concepts for further background.

Core Vocabularies Working Group

The Core Location Vocabulary is one of the three Core Vocabularies that have been developed in the context of Action 1.1 of the ISA Programme. The specification is developed by a multi disciplinary Working Group, with a total of 69 people from 22 countries, 18 EU and 4 non-EU countries (USA, South-Africa, Norway and Croatia), and several EU Institutions.
