Subject: RE: [emergency] Emergency Management Vocabulary alignments?

If I remember correctly, EDXL information was entered into NIEM sometime
back.  Some of it is incorrect, but no one was able to get it changed.

Anyone else?

Subject: [emergency] Emergency Management Vocabulary alignments?

I just found out that the NIEM V2.0 has a whole domain for Emergency
Management that supports the National Incident-Based Reporting System

You can use NIEM online tools to explore these:

 http://ncsconline.org/niemwayfarer  (best)

and also


There's a whole raft of information for emergency stuff - that we have -
that is duplicative - such as vehicle, bed, etc.

I see others have already been here ahead of me.

So for example we have bed, vehicle, etc information - searching in
Wayfarer shows those. 

Bed search results:

Matching Elements	

Obviously we also have these in our schema.

Now of course the NIEM is a giant boat anchor of a XSD fur ball.

However - I could see the case for aligning to the dictionary - so that
names/definitions are equivalent - so you have published 100%
correspondence for interoperability.

This may be as simple as producing a spreadsheet with OASIS item and
then the NIEM equivalent item... have we done that already?

Of course one may want to create subset schema that include only those
definitions extracted from the NIEM xsd fur ball - and built as a
standalone xsd that is maintained independently thru OASIS.

Is that essential what we have done?


Just coming up the learning curve here!

Thanks, DW
