Planned useMoving equivalent uses of narrative location (P840) to the new property
See alsonarrative location (P840)


Recently I had a look at the current use of narrative location (P840) and I noticed some uses that did not indicate a concrete location but rather significant features of the environment the narrative is set in, like church, jungle, bathroom, etc. I think this should be better expressed using an own property and narrative location (P840) should be reserved for concrete geographic locations. Please feel free to improve name and description of this property proposal. Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 14:10, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

I tend to use nature of statement (P5102) mainly (Q91013007) / rarely (Q28962310) to give weight to different locations (when using narrative location (P840)). This could also be used for <set in environment>. To give the exact chapter(s)/section(s) when a work is set in this environment one could perhaps use time index (P4895). - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 21:04, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
Sounds good, what about extending the scope to events. Like some traditional festivals are held on a beach, or a specific music festival is always held in the forest. Germartin1 (talk) 22:08, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
