RDF IG,

Following a successful RDF interest group calendar/geographical
information meeting using IRC, there will be a meeting on geo information this
Wednesday 16th April at 1500 UTC:

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?day=16&month=4&year=2003&hour=14&min=0&sec=0&p1=0

More about IRC: http://esw.w3.org/topic/InternetRelayChat

The meeting will be on irc.freenode.net channel #rdfig for about one
hour. Everyone interested in the topic is welcome to participate.

The purpose of this meeting is to explore various possible RDF
vocabularies for describing geographical information, such as latitude
and longitude, addresses, points and areas and paths between them,
using specific examples and usecases such as describing the location of
a restaurant, or descibing a journey.

http://esw.w3.org/topic/GeoInfo and nearby is being used for notes on
these topics.

Some notes about the previous calendar joint meeting are here, including
some action items which may be part of the agenda:

The agenda is in draft form here on the ESW wiki -

please feel free to add suggestions.

Previous meetings about RDF calendar and RDF query testcases have
proved a fruitful way of collaborating on fairly well-defined topics.
Mapping and location-based RDF apps seem to be an increasingly popular
work area. If you have done work on this topic, do let the rest of the 
community know, by emailing www-rdf-interest@w3.org, and by linking it
from the Wiki page above. 

cheers,

Dan Brickley (RDF Interest Group chair)
Libby Miller (RDF calendar taskforce leader)
