Topics (feel free to add your ideas):

  • ESIP participation in ontology development
    • veting and getting feedback on specific developments for the data-type ontology
      • Data Ontology (CMAPS public server: IHMC Public CMAPS (3)/ user/ESIP-Semantic Web/Data Ontology/SAM_ontology_latest_1_9_01b)
        • Address specific questions: Under StructuralRepresentationType. Should we remove DimensionalRepresentationType class since Map, Raster and Vector are also 1 or 2 dimensional in structure. Spectrum and Timeseries could be subclasses of Vector.
        • Need to add instances for specific concepts
    • discussing how it will be used in a demo
