Subject: ER: Draft minutes from the June 19 2009

Please review!
Geo-GIS Subcommittee Call
Tom, Carl, Dave, Doug, Rex
Discussion of the where "elements" for CAP. Doug described the work going on in Canada where CAP messages can be seamlessly translated into GeoRSS Simple, KML, etc. Suggests that the perhaps we need a richer geometry set for CAP as well as some guidance/best practices on how to integrate CAP content into larger workflows that "transform" from CAP to other encodings for say public alerting using GeoRSS.
Discussion of the need to differentiate between location/where elements for presentation (such as event location) as opposed to content (such as a building footprint).
Discussion on security/authentication. Discussed the results of the OGC Web Services 6.0 in terms of alerting and security/authentication. Perhaps a source of more use cases. After next week's OGC meetings, a number of presentations, videos, and engineering reports to share and provide a basis for discussion in the next meeting.
Discussion of event layer element for CAP 2.0. The issue is driving CAP from a situational awareness perspective and not just the alerting perspective.
