Transportation Ontology Coordination Committee

separate conversations, there is strong interest in having a
coordination committee for transportation ontologies.

It will be a joint task force between the soon to be rechartered
Spatial Data on the Web Interest Group (SDWIG) and the soon to be
renamed/relaunched Automotive and Transportation Business Group
(formerly Automotive Webplatform BG).

shortname (tocc?) a github repository.

Archives will be public
