One outcome of the SOCoP Workshop afternoon breakout on dynamic / 
spatiotemporal feature ontologies was interest in work which has been done on 
concepts for such features. As one of the other participants noted, Donna 
Peuquet has done a lot of work in this area, as has Mike Worboys. May Yuan and 
Kathy Hornsby are other researchers active in dynamic features work, who also 
wrote a short but useful overview:    (01)

There are some proposed ontologies in literature, but it is not yet clear how 
useful they are, since they tend to be based on rather idiosyncratic models of 
dynamic features. There is definitely room to identify a small common set of 
concepts and associated vocabulary to see how far we can get in small steps.    (03)
