Description (last modified by mpritcha) (diff)

Option 1 : web service is ignorant of geographic names, and only supports search by bounding box (or possibly other geometry e.g. polygon?). Client (portal) to support selection of geographic area from vocab server, with associated bounding box (possibly WFS-supplied geometry at later date), then use the bounding box in the spatial query. Liase with Roy Lowry to determine contents of C191 list (i.e. does this contain the bounding boxes yet?) For this option, the task is to provide example AJAX code for search portal to connect to vocab server and retrieve option list of geographic areas with associated bounding box.

The requirement to use the Vocab Server for this functionality is not in the MEDIN requirements per se. They are happy to have some pre-defined names that relate to bounding boxes - just like the EDP.

Accept the fact that this is a more elegant solution but why restrict to a bounding box - seem to remember some geo-proximity functionality here.

We can supply example code and further assistance where necessary to support querying of a gazetteer service via AJAX.
