[GeoSciML] Vocabularies

John-sorry about the delay.

Since there is currently not even a draft vocabulary for samplingFrame for
use in GeoSciML 3.1, I think that if you have something to offer from
INSPIRE, please put it forward. 

Note that the old feature registry at

Includes URNs for EarthNaturalSurface and EarthBedrockSurface, which are
probably the most common map horizons in use for geologic map features.

I added samplingFrame to the list of vocabularies we're working on in the
CGI_GTWG_VocabulariesWork google doc spreadsheet.

Are there any other vocabularies in use that we could feed into creating a
sampling feature vocabulary for MappedFeatures?

At present we have two vocabularies that are required for OneGeology-Global
that have not been developed: GeologicRelationshipTerm and samplingFrame.
For INSPIRE we developed a simple vocabulary for the latter which could
maybe be implemented as a CGI vocabulary. Should we also aim to develop at
least some high level concepts for  GeologicRelationshipTerm?


At present we are using the GeologicUnitPartRoleTerm vocabulary for
CompositionPartRoleTerm, but I don't think the concepts in that are quite
right for CompositionPartRoleTerm (and they don't agree with the examples
given in the CompositionPart.role definition). Should we aim to develop a
new vocabulary for CompositionPartRoleTerm?
