FIBOFTF — Replace PhysicalLocation with PopulationCenter

  • Key: FIBOFTF-11
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: EDM Council ( Dennis Wisnosky)
  • Summary:

    UrbanCenter within PhyscialLocation is defined to represent a large and densely populated urban area. This eliminates city, town, village and hamlet. Perhaps this can be replaced with PopulationCenter, which is more generic and covers non-urban areas.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Replace PhysicalLocation with PopulationCenter

    "ISO 3166 covers countries and parts thereof not types of town - suggest GeoNames would be more appropriate for that.

    Would need to change the metadata since the definition refers to the same concept of Urban Center - so it's really a matter of whether we need a new concept for any town or city, and whether to deprecate this one."
