Hi Information Gatherers,

I thought about how to proceed with the user-interface for visualizing 
the integrated data, looking at the discussing.

It seems the effort to do the syndication is manageable, as Kingsley has 
proven by implementing the aggregation already.
We should focus on the format that we want people to make their data 
sources available in. Once the data format is settled, and Kingsleys 
integration works, we setup a website on some W3C URL related to SWEO to 
make it accessible.
And we can then encourage independent 3rd parties to aggregate the data 
and provide the interface

I asked Susie for her thoughts about this and she proposes exactly this, 
stick to information gathering.

Making a web interface that is user-friendly (especially newbie 
friendly) and is managed by W3C is tricky, because W3C is a technology 
standardization body and not an education body. We all agree that the 
data has to be under an open license and that anyone can visualize it.
So we will focus our efforts on syndication of data and providing a 
stable SPARQL endpoint for the data + download facilities (and an RSS feed).
To decide on this, I would propose now to drop the portal ideas for now. 
Anybody who wants can make a portal, if members of SWEO want to make 
one, thats a new task force. (to concentrate our energy)

(please give feedback)
