Subject: Re: [emergency] CAP alerts as a Web Feature Service

Title: Re: [emergency] CAP alerts as a Web Feature Service
I don't have one built, but I can immediately put one to use, so I would be more than willing to help and include it in the pilot a group of small businesses are building this summer based on the the January Chlorine Tank Car Derailment Incident in Graniteville, South Carolina, The presentation for this was well received at the June 13 Data Reference Model Public Forum


Even though it is not exactly a small business, we are also working with Oracle on this, using the soon-to-be-released 10g R2 with its RDF Data Model which was also shown at the event noted above


We will, in fact probably be using components from most of the presentations from that event


as well as some of our own, especially in the realm of Sensors with heavy emphasis on building the Common Operational Environment long envisioned by our GIS/Geospatial SC.

Would you be interested in including a CAP v1.1 WFS as well?

I am building an OGC Web Feature Service (WFS) for CAP version 1.0 alerts, as I believe this is the open standard way to link CAP messages to a map. If anyone has such a thing already running, please let me know!

In making the Geographic Markup Language (GML) conversion needed for WFS, I am starting from the <http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/emergency-gis/200307/doc00000.doc>Implementors Note: CAP Alert Messages as a GML FeatureCollection at http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/emergency-gis/200307/doc00000.doc

This Implementors Note is about two years old and concerns the use of GML in the context of Common Alerting Protocol (CAP). Hopefully, the "Points of Agreement" in this Implementors Note are still valid, but the recommended XML Schema, "alerts.xsd", should be updated from CAP version 0.9 to version 1.0. Also, the schema given in the Implementors Note is based on GML version 2 and we'd like to be current with whatever is the most widely deployed version of GML.

Any help or advice on this would be greatly appreciated!
