  3. Alignment with OGC specifications and CEOS/CWIC Best Practices


Notes[edit | edit source]

  * New technologies concept needed (Ruth)
  * OpenSearch document should become a Best Practices trunk document (Chris)
  * The ESIP OpenSearch effort should be categorized as test bed for new ideas, OpenDAP etc. Feed into other specs where appropriate.
  * The following amendments will be made to the document
     * WKT subset description as per OGC/CWIC Best Practices
     * User 'via' relation for metadata links
     * xlink element as child of atom:link to provide extra information about link properties. Like OpenDAP. Investigate the feasibility of this
  * Discovery mandate: Jump in front with a simple, demonstrable concept and gather entities in. 
  * Invite Thomas Cherry, Tyler, Mike Morahan (UMM)
  * Semantic Web coordination on schema.org markup. Maintain engagement wrt discovery.
  * Due date for proposals April 15th, next meeting April 8th. So decide what we will commit to at summer ESIP meeting.
