Subject: RE: Minutes of the June 7 2005 GIS SC Teleconference

In attendance: Carl Reed, Michelle Raymond, Tom Merkle, Art Botterell, Gary Ham, Rex Brooks, Adam Hocek, Dave Ellis, Kon Wilms
Note: A Quorum was present
We had a wide ranging discussion WRT EDXL, distribution element, and TargetID. We discussed use cases as a mechanism to provide a foundation and context for domain use of EDXL/distribution elements.
. There is agreement that use cases will be very useful and are required. This is because the uses and environments of use for EDXL are incredibly diverse.
. Agreement that an overarching (executive summary) for EDXL is needed. Rex pointed out that Michael Daconta's work is an excellent place to start.
. This led to conversation about next week's Data Reference Model Public Forum and a variety of presentations and discussions at that meeting that have relevance to the ongoing EDXL work, such as the relationship between EDXL, FEA, and network centric architectures.
. This led to agreement that EDXL needs to work in network architectures, server centric architectures, combinations of both.
. There was also discussion about the use of RDF and the importance of using RDF to better express rules. Agreement that this is important.
. Action: Carl to provide information on Open Source Geospatial 2005 conference (done).
. Action: Michelle to provide some use cases when appropriate.
. Action: Others to keep an eye out for and provide use cases.
