Subject: RE: Sample email to interested parties WRT geo enhancements to CAP
Hi All -
We would like to get this email out to all interested CAP parties so that we can collect requirements and move forward. I originally sent this email in September and only heard from Rex. Other feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks and regards

Subject: [emergency] RE: Sample email to interested parties WRT geo enhancements to CAP
A bit tardy :-)
First stab at a letter to interested party to collect additional requirements for geo enhancements to CAP and by extension to EDXL.
Dear < >
CAP has now been widely implemented. As a result, we are beginning to receive considerable feedback regarding implementation experience, especially in the realm of requirements for enhanced capabilities to express additional (and richer) geographic elements. Some suggestions have been to allow additional coordinate reference systems in addition to WGS-84, the ability to encode point, line, and route features, and the ability to reference the output of a plume model have been suggested.
Therefore, in order to document a consistent set of requirements for potential enhancement or extensions to CAP, we are seeking your input and experience. Please note that we are not seeking input on how to change CAP or to implement changes in CAP. We are instead seeking either use cases or new requirements for using/encoding/referencing geospatial content in a CAP message.
Thank you for your help and consideration.
