We currently have GNIS Antarctica ID (P804) for Antarctic locations, which is the gazetteer run by the US Geological Survey, one of about twenty bodies that names sites in Antarctica. This is a database run by the NZ government. The suggested identifier is the single unique "place ID", which maps to the database. Deror avi (talk) 14:45, 1 February 2019 (UTC)


A few added thoughts on property scope:
I suspect that what this means is that these IDs are just record IDs in the database, not a "place ID" as such. Compare to GNIS Antarctica ID (P804). SCAR Composite Gazetteer place ID (P3230), or Australian Antarctic Gazetteer ID (P3626), which are all purely gazetteers, and where every record explicitly has a place (or name) ID presented.
Given this, I wonder if it would be worth rescoping this to explicitly say "it's an identifier for a general concept, not just a place". There's good content here, and I would love to see it included, but I'm not sure it's a "place ID" as such. Andrew Gray (talk) 16:06, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
