Add temporalCoverage to geoLocation in metadata

I am interested to get your feedback on my proposal to add temporalCoverage to the existing geoLocation in the DataCite metadata schema.

The detailed proposal is available at: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_R8sqYFalgu6iwsUwoOfD1DdFRFbRQlZdnE4ujnIAag

I am especially interested in your answers to:

  • Is this extension useful for you?
  • Do you currently use of the ‘dates’ field to provide this information?
  • Would you prefer as implementation a temporalCoverage connected to geoLocation or an additional dateType option in the dates section?
