Definition: 

A location of the specified geographic level providing information on its name, identification codes, temporal and spatial coverage as expressed by bounding and excluding polygon descriptions or references.

Property:

locationValueName
0..n
A name for the Location. May be expressed in multiple languages. Repeat the element to express names with different content, for example different names for different systems.
geographicTime
0..1
The time period for which the description (names and codes) are valid. Use a date range when start and end periods are known (or the location description is still valid). If the range is unknown indicate a single date for which you know the description is valid. This will allow others to relate it to a fuller date range if external information become available.

definingCharacteristic
Use to attach one or more characteristics which define the area. These are often useful in terms of selection. For example a U.S. Block may be classified as Urban, Rural, or Mixed. The defining characteristic supports the use of a controlled vocabulary and may provide a time period for which the characteristic is valid.

geographicBoundary
A choice of a BoundingBox and/or a set of BoundingPolygons and ExcludingPolygons that describe an area for a specific time period. Repeat the GeographicBoundary for changes in the geographic footprint of the LocationValue or when providing references to BoundingPolygons from different sources.

Aggregation
supersedesLocationValue
Provides a reference to the LocationValue or Values that the current LocationValue supersedes partially or fully. For example, if the LocationValue was the State of North Dakota as defined in 1890 it would supersede the LocationValue for Dakota Territory (1861-1889) as a description of "part" of that Territory.

precedesLocationValue
Provides a reference to the LocationValue or Values that the current LocationValue immediately precedes partially or fully. For example, if the LocationValue was the Dakota Territory (1861-1889) preceded the State of North Dakota and the State of South Dakota as defined in 1890. The Dakota Territory provided "part" of its area in the creation of each new LocationValue.
