* Telecon Topic:
 
** [[Media:ESIP GIS Cluster WCS 1.23.2012.pptx|Hyrax 1.8 release (including a WCS service that works with Hyrax) - OPeNDAP is interested in feedback from the cluster]]
 
** Questions from OPeNDAP:
 
*** Our WCS service returns links to data that must be dereferenced to get the actual data file. Is that a problem for most clients?
 
*** The data file referenced is a netcdf3 data file. Is that a problem?
 
*** Our service returns all of its coverages in a single GetCapabilities response (i.e., one URL). Would it be better to have a separate URL for each coverage (and thus have only one coverage per GetCapabilities)?
 
** If you have answers to these questions, please respond to James Gallagher or David Fulker directly, or send an email to the ESIP-geospatial mailing list.
 
** Q&A from the group
 
*** If we install Hyrax, do we need to install Triple Store?
 
**** No. Triple Store comes with the WCS (in a jar file)
 
*** Which version of WCS are you implementing?
 
**** Version 1.1.2, which was the latest and greatest version at the time of development
 
* Goal setting - what do we want to focus on over the next 6 mos?
 
** Topic ideas for breakout sessions
 
*** Use-cases/demos
 
*** Invited speakers
 
*** Best practices
 
* Identify reps to build an SME reference
 
** Various formats
 
** OPeNDAP
 
** Open Source
 
** etc.
 
* Start thinking about the Summer Meeting in Madison, WI (July 2012)
 
** Half-day or full-day agenda? How many breakout sessions? Ideas?
 
* Conclusion and schedule for next telecon (February 2012)
 
** When is the best time regular monthly telecons(what day of week/time)?
