Hi Brian,

this looks like a valuable contribution. I also came in contact with
your colleague Stuart Williams who is working on bathing water quality
data in Cube Data RDF.

If you want to participate this group you may also try a W3C Invited
Expert Application:
http://www.w3.org/2004/08/invexp.

There should be some home for Linked Environment Data workers somewhere
anyway.
A W3C eGov project would be fine, but it may also be hosted by the EEA
or JRC.
We'll be talking about that at the Ecoinformatics meeting early December.

Best,
Thomas
