I also highly encourage those who are shaping these activities in W3C to 
consult and try to liaise with the existing OGC Geosemantics Domain 
Working Group


The scope of the Geosemantics DWG is any aspect of conceptual modeling 
and formal representation of geospatial knowledge which advances the the 
geospatial interoperability mission of OGC. A particular focus will be 
the adoption or development of tools and methods in support of these 

It is the mission of the Geosemantics DWG to establish an interoperable 
and actionable semantic framework for representing the geospatial 
knowledge domains of information communities as well as mediating 
between them.

Josh Lieberman, copied, is the chair.
