Let's do that. I've heard intriguing mentions of CityGML more and
more, these last few months (years?).

I would really appreciate some pointers on getting to understand it.

I have some basics from searching and a basic idea of GML (and it's
funny cousin KML)...

http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/citygml
http://www.vector1media.com/dialogue/interviews/3251-interview-citygml-modeling-the-city-for-the-future

...but if there are particular datasets (eg. some specific city data,
publically available) or tools that we should be taking care to study,
it would be great to know. There are so many standards to keep track
of!

I'm particularly interested to learn how CityGML interfaces with other
datasets - eg. extensibility and cross-referencing mechanisms. (Actual
examples would be so much nicer than reading specs/schemas too...:)

Thanks for any advice,

Dan
