After a couple of weeks' break, time to dive into geospatial matters  
on the telephone again. We'll have a call as usual this coming Monday  
11 Dec:

Teleconference: 17h30 UTC (12h30 EST)
+1.617.761.6200, + or +44.117.370.6152;
passcode: 43694 (GEOXG)

IRC channel: irc.w3.org, port 6665, channel #geoxg

Apologies for now to Australian participants, but I'll be happy to  
chat on the IRC channel at another time, e.g. around 17h00 Sidney  
time (22h00 PST on 10 Dec). Let me know if you are interested.


Geo update:

The wiki has now been moved to a public location and I've tried to  
describe the model for the (neo) geo work at http://www.w3.org/2005/ 
Incubator/geo/Wiki/Geo_Update . We need to discuss the issues and  
schedule in getting this done and posted for review and use.


A new US federal Community of Practice for Spatial Ontologies has  
been formed and discussions held on how it might align with  and  
build on the Geo XG work ( http://vkwiki.visualknowledge.com/wiki/ 
socop ). This relates to characterizing and building the components  
of an initial (perhaps foundation) spatial ontology which a SOCoP  
pilot project might then build on for a particular domain.

Geospatial ontologies

Amit Sheth has provided references to some RDF schema and instances  
for spatial entities put together by his group ( http:// 
lsdis.cs.uga.edu/projects/semdis/spatiotemporal/ ) which may serve as  
source material for this ontology work. Again, Geo XG participants  
are needed to engage with each of these components and propose  
initial versions of them. The wiki awaits!
