    ● Does not scale !

    1. to determine how spatial information can
    best be integrated with other data on the
    Web;
    2. to determine how machines and people can
    discover that different facts in different
    datasets relate to the same place,
    especially when 'place' is expressed in
    different ways and at different levels of
    granularity;
    3. to identify and assess existing methods
    and tools and then create a set of best
    practices for their use;
    4. to complete the standardization of
    informal technologies already in
    widespread use.
