Subject: Re: [emergency] Liaison/Coordination opportunity for OASIS EMTC and OGC

Thanks Robin,

I hope one of us can find the time to cover this, but we're very busy right now, so it might slip. It would be sad if it does slip, but there's only so many hours in a day, days in a week, etc.

FYI to TC Members

I spotted an invitation from OGC to peer organizations to participate
in a workshop on disaster preparedness and response, which should
include emergency warnings/messaging.

Since OASIS has an Organizational liaison relationship with OGC,
this workshop and ongoing study might present a new opportunity
to highlight the role of CAP and attract new players to the OASIS
TC's work in further standards development for CAP.

Details below per your possible interest.

OGC invites you to the Disasters CDS Workshop at NASA Ames

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) invites you to the
Disasters Concept Development Study Workshop on
May 17-18, 2018 at NASA Ames, Moffett Field CA. The workshop
is sponsored by USGS, FGDC and other US Government agencies.
The workshop is hosted by NASA Ames. 

The workshop marks the early stages of OGC's Disaster 
Concept Development Study, and will shape future activities
to be led by OGC regarding disaster preparedness & response,
and to inform development of potential Disaster Spatial
Data Infrastructures (SDI).

In the last 10 years, Earth has experienced more than
370 annual natural disasters, causing an average of
70,000 deaths per year. So far in 2018, the United States
alone has experienced three disaster events with losses
exceeding $1 billion each. 

Can we save more lives and reduce damages by providing 
better discovery and access to data that will improve
mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery of disasters?

The ability to effectively share, use, and re-use geospatial
information and applications across and between governments
and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) in support of
disaster response and resilience is dependent upon having a
Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI) already in-place when
disaster strikes.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is bringing together
key stakeholders in the natural hazards disaster communities
to advance the emerging Disaster SDI by conducting a study
and developing a set of pilots in the coming years. The OGC's
Disasters Interoperability Concept Development Study (CDS)
will assess the current state of data and product exchange
technologies as used in disaster planning, response, and
recovery. The information gained in the CDS will aid in 
developing a series of future pilots that will in turn
advance the state of Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDIs) 
that support disaster risk reduction across the globe.

Specifically, the purpose of this workshop is to guide 
future OGC Innovation Program Activities by:

1) Engaging different stakeholders in disasters
2) Helping participants better understand activities occuring
   at OGC and other key organizations
3) Engaging executive level participants to understand the
   most important challenges
4) Engaging operational and technical stakeholders to gather
   and share information on the current state for using
   geospatial data and services during natural disasters,
   including: Understanding what data, applications, tools
   and services stakeholders need; Understanding what data,
   applications, tools and services are available; Understanding
   the discoverability, accessibility, and usability of
   resources; Understanding interoperability challenges
   and integration opportunities; and Identifying gaps
   in data, applications, tools and services
