Original text: "See http://geowanking.org/pipermail/geowanking_geowanking.org/2012-June/026179.html
Schema.org's design came via rNews from GeoRSS, and there from GML. It needs a fresh look."

This is now a meta bug for improvements to schema.org's geo(spatial) vocabulary:

Geospatial 'core' terms:

Related schema.org vocabulary for locally oriented info:

  • Physical Web e.g. via beacons such as https://github.com/google/physical-web - what kind of richer schemas are needed to support these use cases?
  • Accessibility of Places - schema.org expects to do some work to support scenarios such as 'is there a wheelchair ramp?', see #254
  • Opening Hours markup needs improving - #245

I've added a simple mechanism (a GeoCircle + geoRadius, geoMidpoint) for circular geoshapes after hearing 4 years of feedback that 'circle' is baffling and hard to use. We could do likewise for polygons, boxes etc but radius-based circle is pretty simple. There's a question of whether miles, kilometres or metres would be the best default - any views?

Answering my own question, I've added a range of Distance (schema.org's syntax that allows '5 km' etc.) and noted that it can be used; when it isn't, we default to metres.

See http://sdo-phobos.appspot.com/GeoCircle and http://sdo-phobos.appspot.com/docs/releases.html

Note that my hotel proposal also has a mechanism for indicating links between places with distance information, see

http://sdo-hotels.appspot.com/distanceInformation
and
http://sdo-hotels.appspot.com/DistanceSpecification

This allows stating that e.g. a hotel is 5 km from a particular airport or the city center or a touristic spot etc.

I just tried to use

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "Dataset",
  "url": "http://www.example.com",
  "spatial": {
    "geo": {
      "box": "50 4 52 6"
    }
  }
}
</script>

on the testing tool but it complains about the box. Is the tool not up to date or is my json wrong?

Google's testing tool sometimes gets confused if type declarations are omitted.

The following shows no errors:

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "Dataset",
  "url": "http://www.example.com",
  "spatial": {
    "geo": {
      "@type": "GeoShape",
      "box": "50 4 52 6"
    }
  }
}
</script>
