This is being sent to the geowanking and OSGEO discuss list. I apologize
in advance if you catch it in your inbox twice, but I didn't want to
miss any potential resources.


I'm working on a GIS Data Model in which I am trying to model some
temporal data. I've done a little research online, but most of the info
is pretty ESRI specific. Although I'm somewhat curious about the use of
temporal data in a GIS in general, I'm really interested in a specific
approach to the problem.


Does anyone know if there is material available that discusses using
events to model temporal data? (Like the "events" we use in GUI


I'd really like to read some "software-neutral" principles on how events
can be used to model time in GIS if this is available. Or, if you have
tackled this challenge personally, I'd love to learn more about your
personal experience and solutions.

P.S. - I posted about the particular circumstances that led to my
interest in this topic and some existing material I found online at my
OpenJUMP blog: http://openjump.blogspot.com/
