Isn't the concept to allow for different spatial representations to be defined for a single feature? Or have I stated something obvious?

if voided, wouldn't it mean that the positionalAccuracy is "not known / not available" as opposed to "known but always the same" ?

What would be neat is to have some way at the beginning of a feature collection to declare default values for voided (or missing) properties.

(cafeine kicking in)..

Hi Ollie,

In the INSPIRE group there is some concern over the implications of the positionalAccuracy and resolutionScale properties of MappedFeature. At present as I understand it these are not voidable so require to be provided for every MappedFeature - which is potentially quite an overhead. In OneGeology-Europe we just hard-coded in values for particular services (so all MappedFeatures for a particular map service were given the same values), but clearly that is really just duplicating information that could be in the metadata. Could these properties be made voidable or have a (0..1) cardinality? In reality, at least where maps other than field maps are concerned, the positionalAccuracy and resolutionScale will always be the same for all MappedFeatures on a particular map.
