Definition: 

Coverage information for an annotated object. Includes coverage information for temporal, topical, and spatial coverage.

Explanatory Notes: 

Coverage is a container for the more specific temporal, spatial, and topical coverages to which it refers.

Example: 
A survey might have ask people about motels they stayed in (topical coverage) in the year 2015 (temporal coverage), while they were travelling in Kansas (spatial coverage). This is different than the temporal, and spatial attributes of the population studied – (international travelers to the US surveyed in 2017).
