Subject: RE Notes from the EM TC Geo-GIS Subcommittee call
Had a good conversation last Friday on possible approaches to how CAP 2.0 might better handle richer geo-content without breaking the current model or backwards compatibility.
We spent some time considering the Canadian provincial activity on a profile of CAP for the Canadian community. Especially focused on the event location layer. This capability allows an easy extension mechanism for richer content. This is critical for uptake and adoption in Canada. Can also map from CAP to GeoRSS simple and embed in an ATOM feed. This may be a viable approach rather than enhancing the geometry elements in CAP.
So, we will continue discussion on CAP 2.0 would be good to include event location references.
The group also agreed that there should not be any presentation information in CAP. Also, need to remain transport agnostic.
Next teleconference in two weeks from last Friday.
