Subject: RE: [emergency] Agenda: 6/17 Call

Think of HumanML categories as a means to filter and aggregate useful 
information from different data sources into a fused view of the cultures 
that inhabit a region.

Given HumanML is at this time, largely a set of categories of information, 
and Human Physical Descriptions will be a small subset, when looking into 
cultural mapping over geospatial areas, the question will be how to get 
and apply the data.  Consider an interface that takes census data and 
filters it into the HumanML framework as a means of populating a 
near-current description.  Note that near-currency will likely be 
useful in that it enables a quick asset allocation based on likely 
scenarios, for example, what languages are dominant (and therefore, 
are translators needed), are there dietary restrictions, are there 
religious beliefs that will constrain interactions, are there holidays 
that might change the distribution of the population during the event, 
and so forth.  Note that public safety agencies typically have a scenario 
based disaster response plan.   The HumanML/GeoVRML:X3D sources could 
be used to prepare these particularly in cases where scenarios may 
have to be created or modified in near real time.  These same databases 
may also benefit police systems that are required (see COPS MORE) to 
implement early interdiction strategies (pre Call For Service actions 
designed to interdict probable incidents).

Note that your utility systems also contain substantial amounts of 
useful information, but policy for access will vary; whereas, census 
data is likely to be public information.

2. Rex: you have done some excellent work cross-linking several standards
efforts. Would it be possible (sorry for the late notice), for you to
summarize your thoughts to the group in today's call? Just so we are all on
the same page? Also, I would like to propose that you set up a formal
liaison SC within the group to help us manage these communications. It is
something we have talked about before, but you clearly have a better grasp
of the other efforts out there through your own participation
