Subject: RE: [emergency] Meeting Minutes: 2003.12.09
Item No.1: When I described this comment, I was posing the question that came up in an email exchange between Jeff Kyser and Art Botterell. The situation is this: Jeff said (http://www.incident.com/pipermail/cap-interop/2003-October/000118.html) : "Then, even if I had a system based on FIPS codes or something else, there would be a means to map the location into my space, as I could come up with a lat/lon/radius for each of the FIPS (or SAME) codes I was interested in monitoring. The onus would be onme, and it wouldn't be perfect (counties not being round in general :) but the (required) data would be there for me to do it." Art replied http://www.incident.com/pipermail/cap-interop/2003-October/000119.html: "Since that would involve implementing some IF-logic anyway, would it be hard to simply treat an <area> with no geospatial or geocode elements as equivalent to no <area> at all?"
