Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-34) Support the concept of an event in CAP

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/EMERGENCY-34?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=51658#comment-51658 ] 

Eliot Christian commented on EMERGENCY-34:

Here is a way to add a new CAP element that describes the current event location.
The cap/info/area element would be renamed cap/info/alertArea. Its sub-elements would be renamed in kind: alertAreaDesc, alertPolygon, alertCircle, alertGeocode, alertAltitude, alertCeiling. The definitions of these elements would all be adjusted to replace the words "affected area" with "alerting area".
A new element would be created, named cap/info/eventArea. It sub-elements would be named: eventAreaDesc, eventPolygon, eventCircle, eventGeocode, eventAltitude, eventCeiling. The definitions of these eventArea elements would be the same as those of the alertArea elements, except that the words  "alerting area" would be replaced with "event area".
 A picture showing the resulting Document Object Model (section 3.1 of the CAP specification) is at https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B5FiAsl5yGbZXzFmaE1rYm1hdVU

>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/EMERGENCY-34
>             Project: OASIS Emergency Management TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: CAP 
>            Reporter: Steve Hakusa
> CAP already has a number of fields describing the event for which an alert is being issued.  Two separate issues in this list wish to add more, and more structured, information about the event
> https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/EMERGENCY-17 : Add event expiration element
> https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/EMERGENCY-16 : Support CAP event location and movement
> These issues and other points of discussion may point to the need for CAP to have a more structured representation of an event and its metadata.
> This issue is meant to contain proposals for how an event could be more formally represented in CAP.
