    public interface Gazetteer
    A directory of geographic identifiers describing location instances. Gazetteers contain additional information regarding the position of each location instance. It may include a coordinate reference, but it may also be purely descriptive. If it contains a coordinate reference, this will enable transformation from the spatial reference system using geographic identifiers to the coordinate reference system. If it contains a descriptive reference, this will be a spatial reference using a different spatial reference system with geographic identifiers, for example the postcode of a property. For any location type, there may be more than one gazetteer.
