Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

W3C is pleased to announce the creation of the Points of Interest Working Group:
  http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/

The mission of the Points of Interest Working Group, part of the Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity, is to develop technical specifications for the representation of "Points of Interest"  
information on the Web. Points of Interest data has many uses, including augmented reality browsers, location-based social networking games, geocaching, mapping, navigation systems, and many others. In addition, the group will explore how the AR industry could best use, influence and contribute to Web standards. The group is chartered until 31 December 2011.

This approval follows the Advisory Committee review [1] of the proposed charter:
  http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/charter/

See below for information about the disposition of comments. Andrew Braun (Sony Ericsson) is the group Chair; Matt Womer the Team Contact.

A Call for Participation will be issued separately. If you have specific questions about details of the group, please address them to Matt Womer <mdw@w3.org>.

This announcement follows section 5 of the W3C Process Document   
"Activities" [2].

For Tim Berners-Lee, Director,
Philipp Hoschka, Ubiquitous Web Domain Lead, and Matt Womer, Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity Lead; Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications

Responses to Member Input
=========================

We appreciate the responses to the proposal of 26 Aug 2010.  There were no objections.  There was a concern that the timeline was not aggressive enough, though the group will endeavor to move as fast as possible.
