Theme Future Status
Long Term Objectives include:
provide all officially named localities and features into the one foundation theme database. This would allow the production of specific and general gazetteer product to be created from that comprehensive data
contain points, lines and polygon data to bring a greater spatial sense to a place name where suited. i.e. A road is not a point, it is either a line or a polygon. If that road is depicted as a point without length or width you have lost or never collected useful information associated with that road. A reserve is not a point it is an area, so should be represented as a polygon
have a greater ability to allow the theme to deal with unofficial, alternative (alias) names and repetition of names across the nation.
be delivered as an openly available real-time service
