Hi GLD,

In the last call I tried to reserve some time to quickly explain what I'm 
currently involved with and the relation it has to GLD.
I always considered my part of work more on the implementation side than 
on the development side of the workgroup. 

So now that we have our FPWD out I have to come into action. There are 
several disaster communication based projects where I'm asked to give my 
opinion and to step in as domain expert.
Most of these projects are about finding ways to communicate between 
various institutions and governments in disaster situations, with a strong 
focus on cross border interoperability.
Interestingly enough they all talk about creating high level ontology's to 
exchange various rather trivial pieces of information, but never looked 
'over the hedge' I'll be spending some time / emails to point them to our 
work, that could save them considerable amounts of time and create show 
cases for our work.
In the Netherlands my work is not left unnoticed, especially the opendata 
parts of the work I do, I will try to push the recommendations from the 
GLD where ever I can in this domain.

Using the ontology's from our recommendations already generated some 
remarks and questions which I will put in a different mail.

If there is time in a future call I could elaborate a bit more on the work 
I currently do

Met Vriendelijke Groet / With Kind Regards
Bart van Leeuwen
