SIF Meeting, 04-October-2013

Convened: 13:30 - 15:00 UTC

Attending: Steve Browdy (SB), David Arctur (DA), Bart De Lathouwer (BD), Espen Volden (EV, Geosec),

Recording: DA

Agenda and Discussion

  • Standards and SAs for quality (to be delivered to DSWG DDQ)
    • RDA Metadata Standards Directory
  • 2013 interoperability topics (results in whitepapers)
    • MIME types for SIR entries (update from OGC TC)
      • Background: SIF MIME Types wiki page, and notes from SIF meeting 17-May
      • DA: at OGC TC, 24 Sept 2013, OGC Naming Authority committee suggested solution for MIME type assignments for OGC web services, is to define a MIME type that identifies each standard web service getCapabilities syntax (eg, WMS, WFS, WCS, CSW, SOS). This will be much more actionable than something generic like "application/xml", and would not require compound MIME type content (xml for capabilities, something else for data payload, which would be identified anyway in capabilities doc)
      • Also, OGC NA committee will consider defining specific MIME types for each standard OGC data format, to escape ambiguity of "application/xml" and even "application/gml+xml")
      • [ ACTION ] DA to follow up with Simon Cox, Clemens Portele, Carl Reed
    • GEOLabel update
    • Legal interoperability
    • Discuss work and timeline for resource casting
      • Review draft paper regarding registration alternatives
    • Discuss work and timeline for linked data
  • SIF Request for Assistance
    • Discuss inclusion on GEOSec site vs. GEO Web Portal
  • GEOSS Tutorials
    • Review those that need attention
    • Decide on work schedule
  • Any other business
    • DA: Promoting domain-sensitive search portals in GEOSS; enabling user feedback to elevate ranking in GWP search results (DA)
    • DA: An official convention for naming OGC standards, intended to simplify and make them consistent and easier to search and cite, will be put into effect by OGC staff in the near- to mid-term. This has apparently been requested and tasked since 2007, but will now be carried out due to renewed requests from various stakeholders.

Next meeting date: 18 October 2013 (NOTE: European Summer Time ends before next meeting; will switch meeting time to 14:30 UTC)
