Subject: RE: GIS SC Telecons staring again

Dear EM TC and GIS SC Members -
Time to start those GIS SC conference calls again! The topic of the calls will be to discuss and agree on approaches for change requests to CAP and EDXL (these could be best practices approaches) for extending and/or leveraging additional geo capabilities.
I have reserved an OGC teleconference line for the next 4 "meetings". The first of these will be on April 25 and then every two weeks.
In the meantime, I would like the GIS SC members to consider GeoRSS as a possible starting point in our discussions. You can go to www.georss.org to review all the materials. I suggest GeoRSS for several reasons. First, as GeoRSS is designed to geo-enable RSS feeds, the same issues of simplicity coupled with extensibility and flexibility are very similar requirements to those expressed by the EM TC. Second, GeoRSS is the result of a collaboration between OGC staff and members, the W3C, the RSS "geek" community and the map hacking community. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, even though GeoRSS is young, there is growing momentum for uptake and implementations. There are numerous implementations, including a beta version by Microsoft for Virtual Earth 3.0. Why is this important? Well, geo-enabled RSS feeds can be thought of as alerts!
