  • globe – explicit (?) data value, given as stellar body that defaults to Earth "http://www.wikidata.org/entity/Q2"
  • precision - numeric precision of the coordinate
The value type for this data type is globecoordinate.

  • timezone – explicit value as a signed integer. Timezone information as an offset from UTC in minutes.
  • before – explicit integer value for how many units after the given time it could be. The unit is given by the precision.
  • after – explicit integer value for how many units before the given time it could be. The unit is given by the precision.
  • precision – explicit value encoded in a shortint. The numbers have the following meaning: 0 - billion years, 1 - hundred million years, ..., 6 - millennium, 7 - century, 8 - decade, 9 - year, 10 - month, 11 - day, 12 - hour, 13 - minute, 14 - second.
