Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-14) support additional area shapes

    [ https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/EMERGENCY-14?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=37812#comment-37812 ] 

Eliot Christian commented on EMERGENCY-14:

It seems to me that GML is very complex and overkill for the needs of CAP. 

Perhaps in CAP 2.0 consideration should be given to adopting GeoRSS-Simple ( http://www.georss.org/simple ). This provides point, line, polygon, box, and circle. 

Looking at the GeoRSS-Simple example, though, we may need a provision that says beyond a small set of subelements  any other subelement tag or value that is not understood (e.g., "floor 2") can be safely ignored.

I also note that GeoRSS-Simple has elevation in meters. Perhaps this could help to address a long standing complaint that CAP uses feet for ceiling and altitude rather than meters?
