Subject: RE: Motion to recommend GML Simple Features profile to the TC

Dear  EM GIS Subcommittee -

Apologies for not being on the last couple of calls. Travel has been a bit 
crazy lately. Elysa provided me an excellent synopsis of the discussions 
that occurred at the last GIS SC conference call. A summary from Elysa:

<we> arrived at the fact that it seems Simple Features (along  with circle) 
is going to be the best way to go.  We followed that  with an EM-TC meeting 
the following Tues and all seemed to agree.

So, we now need an official motion from the GIS SC to the entire TC on this 
topic. In terms of the Circle element, we already have an official Change 
Request for GML Simple Features to include the Circle element.

Therefore, as GIS SC Chair, I recommend:

"That the OASIS EM TC endorse the use of GML Simple Features profile for 
encoding location elements and features in OASIS standards as appropriate."

If there is no objection to unanimous consent by the end of this week, then 
the motion passes. If there is objection, we will have to get more formal 
and do a "hand" vote.

Hopefully I am following OASIS policies correctly :-)
