Types of Places

The following types of places have been designed by the LDFI project led by CAPACOA.

Artsdata highly recommends using the Wikidata type URI as schema:additionalType.

Artsdata also takes advantage of the schema:placeContainedIn to create links between rooms/halls and buildings. Also between buildings and encompassing places such as city. This automatically situated event venues in a city, region, province and country. Linking increases the ability for reconciling places when only a name and postal address is available.

Proposed additions

geo property - The geo coordinates of the place.

This property is favoured over adding explicit longitude and latuitude because the property geo not only can include longitude and latitude in class GeoCoordinates but it can also be defined by the class GeoShape which gives flexibility to define parks and areas that do not have a specific starting address.

This property can satisfy the SHACL validation for Places, removing the absolute requirement of a Place to have a PostalAddress.
