Location Context to Knowledge
• • “Where” is so critical to knowledge Much of what happens is location sensitive
– e.g. Flooding, contaminated site, microwave communication path, etc.

Why does it happen here and not there?


What activities happened “here” in the past?
What is happening “around” here?
– i.e. neighbourhood questions
