Like in all the wiki-world, this should be guaranteed through the reference
claim, shouldn't it?
I think we should at least limit it to specified
precision (not the case
today) but maybe even more in case precision is too high. I don't think
anything beyond 1m is really useful - please provide use cases if you
I can't think of anything really useful right now... What I'm afraid of is
creating fake grids like it happened in DBpedia with too much rounding (see
, p. 44/45). Maybe with 1 m precision it won't happen today, but it
might in the future for very POI-dense areas.. (might it?)
