Dear all,

At a recent Linked Art meeting we discussed how to model “find events”, and S19 and O19 were agreed upon as the correct modeling constructs.  We also discussed why S19 is an “encounter” rather than a “find” or “discovery”, as is very well described in the scope notes for the class.

However, the properties of S19 would benefit from some attention towards consistency.  If S19 is encountering, then it seems counterproductive to have O19 as being “has found object” and O21 “has found at”, undoing all the good culturally sensitive work of explained in S19.

I would propose that O19 and 21 be relabeled to “encountered object (was object encountered by)” and “encountered at (witnessed encounter)”.

Many thanks for your consideration,

Current Proposal:

I support this!

HW from the Oct 2020 SIG to review the scope notes for O19 and O21, given the relabeling of the properties to use "encounter" rather than "found".

O19 current scope note:  

    This property associates an instance of S19 Encounter Event with an instance of E18 Physical 

    Thing that has been found. 

Proposed new scope note:

This property associates an instance of S19 Encounter Event with an instance of E18 Physical Thing that was encountered or observed as present during the event. 

O21 current scope note:

    This property associates an instance of S19 Encounter Event with an instance of E53 Place at which an encounter event found things. It identifies the narrower spatial location in which a thing was found at. This maybe known or given in absolute terms or relative to the thing found. It describes a position within the area in which the instance of the encounter event occurred and found something. 

Proposed new scope note:

This property associates an instance of S19 Encounter Event with an instance of E53 Place at which the things which were encountered were observed to be present. This may be given in absolute terms or in terms relative to the observed thing. The referenced place must be within the boundaries of the E53 Place at which the S19 Encounter Event P7 took place at, if that is given.
