subclass of (P279) -> geographic location (Q2221906) & subclass of (P279) -> geographical object (Q618123)
I find these two links to be surprising. Although most facilities happen to be on Earth, shouldn't their definition be decoupled from the concept of existing on Earth ?
As an example : the James Webb Space Telescope (Q186447).
The JWST is an instance of (P31) -> space observatory (Q148578), which is a subclass of (P279) -> observatory (Q62832), thus a facility (Q13226383), and in turn a geographic location (Q2221906), which means it's part of (P361) -> Earth's surface (Q1349417). Yet, the JWST is not even orbiting the Earth, it's orbiting the sun at L2.
- Yes, observatory (Q62832) is homonym (Q160843): 1) Earth (Q2)'s ground-based observatory 2) outer space (Q4169)'s space observatory 3) airborne observatory --Fractaler (talk) 12:11, 13 January 2017 (UTC)
- I guess I'll go ahead and move the linkage one notch higher, respectively to location (Q17334923) and physical object (Q223557), either of which could also be debated I guess, but it's probably more correct. Eledeuh (talk) 12:04, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
- "facility" is just place used by humans, not necessary studied in geography
- But always a 2D/3D place somewhere.
- E.g. "launch site" (2d/3d place where launch will happen)
- Only engineering specialties have strong interest in launching sites.
- I tried to address this in recent changes.
- If there is better option - please let me know. d1g (talk) 05:07, 28 September 2017 (UTC)
