Good reasons for diversity! Coverage, granularity, focus, scholarly quality, community, …  Pelagios 3 defined an RDF profile (or »specification«) for 1. publishing links between places in different gazetteers online 2. publishing minimal place metadata online So that we search at all! So that we can make connections and cross-search.
