Hi all,

The minutes for last week's face to face meeting are available at:

And as text below.

It would be difficult to summarize this meeting in just a few short sentences, so I've taken an action to summarize it in a longer form.  I'll mail when that summary is available.

Thanks to Layar for hosting us, and everyone for attending!

   <matt> [19]Charter

     [19] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/charter/

   Matt: first draft called CORE it should be ready in April
   ... late april, early may it's not so bad

   <JonathanJ> W3C Process document :

     [20] http://www.w3.org/2005/10/Process-20051014/tr.html#first-wd

   Matt: how we want to go on the document?
   ... we need so cohesion
   ... a role of editor
   ... the author is the working group
   ... Editor should put on the proper format
   ... anyone want to step forward?
   ... I can put a strong effort help on this issue
   ... the editor is also the author
   ... and we can work as we want

   Alex: how we can expect people to work collaboratively without
   clashes, etc?

   Matt: the social part
   ... we can have hierarchy
   ... so far people is scared on put things on the wiki
   ... they prefer to send stuff by email, then someone adds it to the


   <JonathanJ> we can also use to tracker system -

     [21] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/track/

   Carsten: it's good put stuff on the wiki and then stop a certain
   ... to make an agreement and edit them into the document

   Fons: it should be a native speaker of doing it

   cpery: there is not so match traffic on the mailing list

   matt: we need to put more action points on the call, so it would be
   more effective

   <matt> [22]POI Tracker

     [22] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/track/

   <matt> RESOLUTION: Matt to start acting as informal editor. WG will
   bring together issues weekly for entering into wiki.

Requirements Generation

   <danbri> what do we have re requirements?


     [29] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&search=requirements&go=Go

   Dan: can we look at the requirements?

   <matt> [30]Use Cases

     [30] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Use_Cases

   matt: i start put some requirements


   matt: I collect tech requirements here
   ... maybe we should go back into primitive

     [31] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Requirements

   Alex: would say personally yes because I think we don't have
   finished the discission
   ... we need a review

   <danbri> I'm looking for stuff like: "I maintain a Web page listing
   points of interest in my city; what could/should I do to make this
   W3C POI compatible?"; "I'm building an AR app for iphone, what data
   structures should I create to hold W3C POI data?", "I'm building a
   database of POIs to back a social Web site, ... what minimum
   structure should it have to fit the W3C spec?", "I have a javascript
   library for plotting POIs on a 3D globe - [32]https://mozilla

     [32] https://mozilla/

   <danbri> demos.org/demos/globetweeter/demo.html eg - ) ....etc"

   Alex: My concerns about relevance, we need a short review on what we
   have said

   <matt> [33]Current Use Cases

     [33] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Use_Cases

   Alex: these use cases sounds to me like are almost the same


     [34] https://mozillademos.org/demos/globetweeter/demo.html

   <matt> [35]Christine's use cases

     [35] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Use_Cases#Augmented_Reality

   alex: I hope there are use case that covers all and not only one

   cperey: some agend are creating new content

   alex: people have practical thing to do in their head and these has
   effect on the UC
   ... we need to spend more time on UC, because we got away from the

   Carlsten: we need to define what is out of scope

   cperey: maybe some of the issues is that
   ... OGC are more familiar on people who are

   <danbri> no

   <danbri> (matt, sure. notes here:) ... 2 proposals to make (test
   driving Issue-based discussion and decision making), (i) POI spec
   should make explicit ability to distinguish an organization (eg. a
   school) from the building/geo it inhabits (ii) POI spec should make
   explicit ability to distinguish organizational brands (Starbucks,
   CostaCoffee). Suggest we decide this in terms of personas for
   relevant use cases, eg. webdev working at starbucks; 3rd party

   <danbri> layar developer making a 'coffee hangouts' layer or iphone

   <danbri> (if we can spend a little time to walk thru discussing
   those and making or not making issues, that'd be lovely)

   Alex: we need more people experts on different aspect we want to
   cover on POI

   danbri: 2 expample on modelling issues

   sorry too fast to me :(

   <matt> scribe: matt

   danbri: 1. Are we going to have explicit ability to distinguish
   between say an organization and it's buildings?
   ... 2. Distinctions between organizational brands, e.g. all of the
   Starbucks in Boston.
   ... I don't think we have enough use cases to cover these.
   ... I think we should have more personas, say GIS professional or AR
   ... Say, I've spent time building a layer of Amsterdam restaurants,
   how does that person relate to the spec?

   cperey: it's better to avoid meeting while there are other at the
   same time in other place
   ... that was one the problem during Atlanta's one
   ... The next one should be in ASIA

   alex: what does meaning hosting rotating?

   matt: To be fair to all participants we should try to rotate through
   the continents they are located in.

   cperey: we don't have ideal time for meeting on each continent

   <JonathanJ> we can host a meeting in seoul

   <JonathanJ> a few weeks ago, we hosted DAP WG meeting in Seoul -

     [45] http://www.w3.org/2009/dap/wiki/SeoulF2F2011

   matt: we should have one meeting in summer

   cperey: also OGC has volunteered for hosting
   ... would like to OGC members to participate
   ... OGC will pay the place/food/registrstion

   <danbri> re OpenStreetMap I find
   ver but not the final url

     [46] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/State_Of_The_Map_2011/Bid/Denver

   Alex: how we connect organization like W3C with OpenStreepMap
   ... Just a practical question

   <JonathanJ> If we can host a meeting in seoul, potential Korean
   company(LG and Samsung) and Korean AR guys could be join us.

   Resume proposal on WIKI


   <danbri> proposal maybe? "POI Core format should be capable of
   round-tripping Open StreetMap data for points, potentially using
   extension mechanisms to capture any extra info needed. A draft CR
   exit criteria?"

   <danbri> OSM data: [47]http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Planet.osm

   <matt> Scribe: matt

   cperey: There was a two day meeting after Barcelona. This group
   wasn't represented.
   ... Alex gave a presentation, Andy was planning to come but couldn't
   make it.
   ... OGC proposed to make itself the administrative platform for a
   loose community of those who care about standards.
   ... George Percival made a presentation and a pitch about it.
   ... I've had a few meetings of international standards community
   that have brought together 50-60 people. Half presentation half
   ... One proposal is that the OGC take the lead.
   ... There has been some pushback. No decision has been made.
   ... We didn't have visibility into other standards organizations.

   <danbri> (this all about AR...)

   cperey: It's informal, grassroots, people can contribute, but since
   it's informal, it doesn't get official recognition.

   danbri: Similarly WHATWG made things and made people listen.

   cperey: There's a very high quality discussion on the list. It's
   very AR focused, not focused on one specific domain.
   ... So proposal for f2f to be at the next OGC meeting, I went to
   George and said "we can't just continue to do the same formula",
   need to have concrete objectives. Can't just say we'll chat about
   position papers.

     [50] http://arstandards.org/mailman/listinfo/discussion
     [51] http://arstandards.org/pipermail/discussion/

   cperey: So the accepted proposal was that OGC set up liaison between
   OGC and other organizations and then a meeting outside the OGC,
   where others can attend who weren't members.

   <danbri> lots of discussions here

     [52] http://arstandards.org/pipermail/discussion/2011-March/date.html

   cperey: It would let multiple organizations get together.
   ... The other option is to have liaisions.
   ... To short-circuit things, we would be to create liaisons with the
   other groups that skirt at the ages of where we are.
   ... The proposal is to have a multi-SDO meeting. Maybe people are
   not part of each organization.
   ... The purpose would be to create a figure that defines what
   different organizations, be they grass roots, or more established
   organizations, that describes who is going to take care of what.
   ... So the scope is understood between one another.
   ... Figure out our constituents, and then let the other parts that
   have expertise be covered by other organizations.
   ... So if this working group could attend one day, or half a day,
   and have it's WG meeting around it, that would be one proposal.
   ... Each SDO present what they are working on.
   ... It would really accelerate the work on the AR landscape.
   ... It would in one place bring in where all these organizations
   ... I've written a chapter for a book on the subject of where we
   stand now as far as the standards organizations are concerned.
   Co-authored with Carl Reed (OGC) and Timo ?? (Fraunhoffer).
   ... and a contribution from the Khronos group.
   ... We created a diagram of which groups have which expertise. I'm
   happy to share it.

   alex: So there's a proposal on the table related to what you first
   mentioned. This invitation by OGC to go to Taiwan in June. Does this
   group want to have it's F2F there and participate in a multi-SDO

   cperey: Those that join OGC covers the participation in the TP, etc.

   carsten: From OGC there are two types of WGs, there's WGs which are
   difficult to liaise with, and then there are more general domain

   cperey: Examples? Mass Market?

   cartsten: And 3D Information Management

   danbri: And GeoSPARQL?

   carsten: That one is a standards WG, but there's also geo semantics,
   which is a domain WG.
   ... 3DIM covers an awful lot of stuff that may be relevant in an AR
   world ranging from geology to navigation of robots within buildings.

   <JonathanJ> one of OGC's activity in W3C was SSN IG -

     [53] http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ssn/

   carsten: I'm not sure there will be much 3D stuff in Taiwan, so I
   think the Boulder meeting might be more relevant.

   matt: The Boulder one also has the OSM meeting around it.

   carsten: There may also be a 3D summit in Boulder.

   [[insert matt's comments here]]

   alex: I think you're saying the liaisons are sufficent, but getting
   everyone meeting is not necessarily the solution to the problems.

   matt: I think we can get the actual work done best through liaisons.
   We can use the official W3C workshop mechanism to do the rest, or we
   can have another group do it, or a new third party.

   cperey: I think the struggle we're having on the list is a
   reflection of a larger question.
   ... I don't believe it would be healthy to have a multi-SDO meeting
   that is a mock-up of having five standards development organizations
   there, and only have 2 show up.
   ... If the WGs within the SDOs, the work item groups, the OMA
   effort, etc, decide to come and OGC is there and W3C and Khronos is
   there, if you can get 4 of 5 or 5 of 6, that tips the scales to
   looks promising.
   ... Then if those organizations have their liaisons in place and can
   make their activities more known to one another, then that would be
   beneficial to all of the work.
   ... There's a lot to be hashed out, it's not a done deal that this
   meeting will happen. It's voluntary.

   <danbri> no sweat

   alex: I hear that if we don't liaise with these other groups, then
   we fail in a sense. I think that's a real problem, I don't know if
   what you're proposing is the solution, or if there are other ways we
   can liaise and succeed.

   danbri: One of the biggest obstacles is that some of these
   organizations work in private. I think the tendency is to work fully
   in public at w3c now. It was hard. Every time you move stuff public,
   you remove the incentive to join. OGC, Khronos, ISO all have these

   <JonathanJ> +1

   danbri: Someone has to pay for making standards. What we have with
   AR and POI is a very broad, loose, hard to get your head around
   ... 3d modeling, QR codes, etc everything is in there. Because it's
   so broad, I think having a single meeting with all of the stake
   holders can be useful.
   ... We need to have as broad a group as possible to send links and
   ... Public discussions, things that have links... if we don't have
   that we have press releases from CEOs talking about working with
   other groups and nothing inside.
   ... I think we should be moving more and more public in this WG.

   alex: Do you think much happens in AR, e.g. the Layars of the world,
   are talking in public or in private about standards.

   danbri: They're busy getting started. As a market leader, it's
   difficult to rationalize standards.
   ... Some standards yes, some no.

   <JonathanJ> Another biggest obstacle is IPR problem.

   Ronald: I think the AR browsers have realized there will be a
   standard, and we can't wait for it, so we're doing our own stuff, so
   we want to be the first to make a browser for that standard too!

   cperey: Layar and Mobilizy contribute an enormous amount to this

   alex: I think I narrowed it down too much, but there's also the
   Nokia/NAVTEQ's that have interest in seeing these standards go
   forward, but I doubt they are talking to each other a lot about
   those standards.

   cperey: MetaIO came to the meeting in Barcelona and was an eye
   opener for them.

   <danbri> (absolutely no disrespect to layar intended; i just mean
   that it's expensive to put time into standards, but for market
   leader the incentives are always ambiguous for std'izing a rapidly
   evolving platform)

   alex: Yes, it's obvious that the Wikitudes and the Layars of the
   world see this as a good place to touch. The question is what
   organization do we create that is appealing to them.

   <danbri> much for nametags :)

   alex: There will be some organizations who don't see it as their
   full time job to be in standards organizations.
   ... It sounds like it's similar to OGC and W3C as it has membership,
   IP, companies have things to say in it.

   cperey: And OMA.
   ... They don't want to have membership in five organizations. They
   want to have confidence that the organizations will define the

   alex: Do we want this to be a permanent organization?

   <JonathanJ> I worry about that Giant company(Google, Apple, MS) can
   be a killer of AR standardization in future.

   cperey: Which we?

   alex: All of us at the same time.
   ... If they don't want to be in each organization than they can have
   their own group, or they can join OMA, or...

   <danbri> I can't get excited about another group to liaise
   thru/with/via, as a solution to the 'there are too many groups to
   liaise with' problem :|

   cperey: It can be counter productive to be too formal.

   alex: On one hand, we're not a bunch of hackers throwing together
   all of our AR fantasies. We're trying to be a little bit more
   "pointed". We can't have both at the same time.

   <matt> Luca: they have different membership types.

   cperey: qualcomm is active as well

   matt: we have people who are members in both organization, we have
   an agreement with OMA and OGC for data sharing

   <JonathanJ> I have asked Criminisi (Current Champion of MobileAR),
   Telecom Italia, but she said not yet decide for MobileAR meeting in

   ahill: is there any reason against it?

   matt: as our work is public, there is no real need for it

   cperey: seems like a no brainer to do a liaison
   ... having people in both groups is not a real way of knowing what
   is going on, but having an official liaison is better

   matt: we should talk and be in cooperation and point out where the
   overlap is with us and other

   cperey: do we have POI covered? We are having problems getting

   ahill: it might make other members from OMA to participate in our
   ... agreeing to liase with OMA does not influence our charter

   matt: OMA wants to write a standard for POI. we should talk to them
   and work together instead of duplicating efforts

   cperey: creating a contact surface of POI for immediate discussion
   with them. Ask them how they want to define POI

   matt: having them at the table is ok.. drafting the response has to
   be looked at by a lawyer from the W3C perspective

   luca: POI is more general than AR
   ... we have to look at how it will affect our groups work

   <JonathanJ> As you can see in Mobile AR spec -
   [61]http://db.tt/JmtFaNO , I think they are just focused on Mobile
   AR architecture.

     [61] http://db.tt/JmtFaNO

   luca: the OMA work package seems to be describing an application and
   not really a specification
   ... we don't have a special interest in AR, but have it as a use
   ... they will need us as a common way of information and we can take
   their specific use case as input for our POI definition (e.g.
   special data field requirements)

   matt: our generic POI is supposed to be extensible, so if OMA want a
   standardized client for AR they might want to add specifics to the
   data model

   cperey: the scope of OMA seems quite large, it covers the entire
   ... we have taken only a small portion of the problem and it is
   already messy.
   ... the companies involved are not the ones who are currently
   working on it in the real world

   ahill: maybe its the nature of OMA that they want to standardize
   bigger things and this is just a blanket

   matt: the m stands for mobile, so they limit their full stack to
   just mobile ar
   ... they are in a strange place compared to us

   ahill: they are not just doing it in private, but they are seeking
   liaisons. so maybe they realize they do not have all the answers

   <matt> ACTION: andy to start drafting a response to OMA liaison

   they participate in our POI and AR discussion and try to converge
   their technical specifications with ours [recorded in

   <danbri> JonathanJ, thanks for that link, I hadn't seen it. There's
   a basic taxonomy of actors in OMA-ER-MobAR-V1_0-20110311-D_20110323
   but it seems very simple (user, content provider, service

   matt: when looking at Khronos, we don't want to specify 3D specs,
   and we don't want them to deal with POIs

   ahill: not sure what Khronos would contribute to POIs, but it would
   be nice to know they are involved
   ... it will help our legitimacy
   ... maybe we should shift to a more tangible look at what the core
   draft is to summarize

Reviewing the Core draft

   <danbri> [63]http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Core/Draft

     [63] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Core/Draft

   ahill: the core draft we have is the result of our F2F in december
   ... discussions were about whether POIs were purely geo based or
   describing things
   ... a core POI is described by a location, name, some relationships,
   identifier, category, some temporal information, and any metadata,
   any extensibility
   ... the first one is location
   ... we wanted to have something flexible, not just individual points
   ... it can have one or more location primitives, for example 100ft
   from the corner of another known place
   ... or some strict WGS84 location
   ... or a description for an image capturing device, so you don't
   know the real location, but do know it when you see it
   ... if some service exists that can resolve the exact location that
   is helpful
   ... we do want to look at 3D objects for extends
   ... we did not go into detail
   ... the relationship primitive is for defining relations for example
   adjacency, franchise of a chain,

   <matt> Carsten: Silicon Valley is a "vernacular name"

   ahill: for navigation adjacency is important to have

   cperey: if you have 5 stores in a mall, how do you specify that the
   specific POI is in the mall

   ahill: here we got a bit confused. we have extensibility,
   relationships, etc... and we did not know what should fit in which
   ... the category has to be added to POI from the big POI databases

   cperey: the categorization pushes us into the direction of linked

   carsten: it is an area where the data vendor pushes their picture of
   the world

   danbri: we know we as a group cannot specify all categories, but
   leaving a giant hole in the spec is not good
   ... so we could specify our standard to let others insert categories

   <danbri> (there might also be different kinds of categories; eg.
   cultural heritage categories for historical landmarks, versus types
   of company, ...)

   carsten: in citygml we try to model the real world, so we have
   materials for building, roofs, which can be country specific.
   ... initially, we wanted to give an example in the specification and
   let people use their own

   <danbri> (another example, friend here in AMS collecting info about
   road blockages for fire dept usage ... categories range from 'big
   hole in street' to 'lighbulb needs changing')

   carsten: but if you publish the data, it is not that useful. so we
   looked into having a registry for "approved" lists
   ... trying to convince OGC staff to look at a resource to utilize,
   but still at the beginning

   <danbri> (q for Carsten, I heard a rumour OGC was moving towards
   using SKOS for 'code list' categories?)

   ahill: I am still new to the RDF world, but there are some
   standards. You would not create the registry ad hoc

   carsten: there is a bit of structure. we are currently in the
   process to put an URI on top of it to find it


     [64] http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=skos+ogc

   ahill: isn't there something in the RDF world, like a schema?

   danbri: skos is more of less a thesaurus with different levels of

   ahill: my point was that when people go to registries, it should not
   be ad hoc. we have some guidance

   matt: with RDF you can look at the namespaces and dereference

   <JonathanJ> SKOS - [65]http://www.w3.org/TR/#tr_SKOS

     [65] http://www.w3.org/TR/#tr_SKOS

   jacques: perhaps we should focus on XML first as it is simple and
   look at RDF later
   ... RDF can be powerful, but we can stay with something simple and

   ahill: if I see something from "good relations" but how do I know
   what the document contains

   danbri: you can look at the spec. It is not always writing the code
   for you
   ... it is semi-structured chaos\

   ahill: it is up to me if I see foaf to know what to do with it

   ahill: there will be a lot of data in a POI, but how do we define
   what data we want to get

   matt: jacques provided a link today

   <danbri> i'll try converting that POAP example to fit into Facebook
   OG format, as a quick demo

   <matt> Ronald: The POI information is at first limited, but you can
   view in a web view more information

   <matt> Ronald: Kept the APIs simple and deliberately chose to have a
   single API call.

   ahill: it is a big problem for anyone building mobile AR
   ... might be our of scope for this group

   matt: It is in scope to make something useable

   jacques: we have an app build on RDF, which is powerful, but we
   don't use a lot of it
   ... not sure if companies like Layar, Wikitude, Metaio would
   leverage the power of RDF

   matt: we decided last F2F to not look at the technical format, but
   primarily at the data model
   ... and have multiple options for data representations

   danbri: if we have an entity-relationship model we are pretty close
   to RDF anyway\

   jacques: when looking at openstreetmap, it is very popular because
   the XML format is very simple
   ... we now see many people converting the data to RDF format
   ... in this group it might be bettor to have a simple XML format.
   Others can map it to RDF

   <matt> [70]OSM format?

     [70] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Data_Primitives

   danbri: the data will appear in multiple places JSON for web, XML,
   ... whatever we do we will upset people\

   jacques: authoring json is more difficult than xml
   ... openstreetmap has 2 billion POIs in XML, with semantic data in
   each POI
   ... which is why I prefer XML, it is like HTML

   <matt> scribe: Matt

   Ronald: I'm not sure we should focus our efforts on the mapping, but
   rather on the datamodel.
   ... We should choose one format for our internal discussion and
   focus on that, rather than focusing on all of the mappings at once.
   Let's look at the data model and pick one format, say, XML for doing
   examples, etc. We can keep an eye on the mapping, but not try to do
   the exercise of mapping it as we go.
   ... We do everything in JSON at Layar, but I can understand why you
   wouldn't want to, for the fact that you'd invent namespaces on top
   of JSON, etc.

   Alex: I have this sneaky feeling that we're going to end up with
   linkages between location entity, or any other sort of data, be it a
   sound or a description or a 3d model. And that sounds a lot like
   Linked Data and RDF.
   ... As long as the XML that we are writing can go to RDF, that seems

   Ronald: I agree. I see a real future in this linked data stuff.

   Alex: I like the idea of describing it in XML to not overwhelm

   PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Group will work in XML, and not do the mappings
   to other formats simultaneously, but keep mappings in mind as we go.

   Alex: I'd like to talk to more people in Linked Data, and make sure
   we're not missing something.

   <danbri> proposal: The WG expect that broadly equivalent POI
   descriptions will be exchanged in the Web using at least XML, HTML5,
   JSON formats,

   <danbri> often embedded within some surrounding format or spec. For
   example, POI details might be described within HTML markup inside
   KML XML, inside

   <danbri> Atom, as part of OpenGraphProtocol RDFa in HTML, or in JSON
   and JSONP Web APIs. The value of the WG's spec's will in large part
   be related to

   <danbri> their ability to communicate POI data across such
   application boundaries, especially where extension information (eg.
   categories, relationships)

   <danbri> needs to be preserved.

   <JonathanJ> +1

   PROPOSED RESOLUTION: The WG expect that broadly equivalent POI

   canonical (at least within group's own discussions)

   <matt> RESOLUTION: The WG expect that broadly equivalent POI
   descriptions will be exchanged in the Web using at least XML, HTML5,
   JSON formats, often embedded within some surrounding format or spec.

   <danbri> (I don't mind which format so long as we've got a pluralist
   deployment story)

   <matt> RESOLUTION: The normative mapping included will be XML.

   danbri: in the end back end developers will use their own
   representation based on the abstract model
   ... they need to be able to read the spec
   ... don't assume people will have xml databases

   ahill: let's continue with the summary of the core draft
   ... the time primitive, we still did not define fully
   ... question on whether it reflects the time when the washington
   monument was created or the time when the POI was created in the
   ... a POI must have a location primitive. From geo, a POI only
   exists when it has a location. From AR, we might not know where the
   POI really is

   carsten: a location isn't necessarily a coordinate
   ... we deal a lot with postalcode information, point information for
   ... when a new postalcode is created, we don't know the exact point
   ... attribute indicating the POI is unmatched
   ... it is in this mall is a valid location

   matt: we talked about having an "unknown" location, but we can
   probably have an incredibly inaccurate location

   ahill: there is a segway to relationships
   ... we have in the spec "undetermined" for location
   ... but there are relationships that can then determine the
   location, e.g. a relation to the mall POI
   ... there is always a location primitive
   ... still need to clarify things a bit more

   <danbri> (where's zakim gone?)

   ahill: a lot of things are still to be decided

   <matt> [74]Relationship Primitive

     [74] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Core/Draft#Relationship_primitive

   ahill: maybe this is time for an issue

   screenings) by making them POIs, or by describing their relationship
   to POIs?

   carsten: do you guys think a POI is an address?
   ... are we thinking in 3D or 4D?

   numbers specifying a location

   <ahill3> what IRC server address in limechat?

   and RDF/XML

     [77] https://github.com/danbri/Pogo/tree/master/checker/testcases/poi

   we are thinking 4D it might be

   <JonathanJ> In Korea, we are developing the ARI(Augmented Reality
   Identifier) spec that it extend to IETF's URN specification.

   create "static" POIs
   ... we have the chance to boost the time aspect

   ahill: if you don't add a time element to a POI it is seen as

   matt: the temporal stuff we definitely have to address while
   crafting the core draft

   <danbri> proposal re temporal aspects: POI spec should allow for
   temporal characteristics of the description/record (publication
   date, 'coverage' / when it's true dates); and also of the payload,
   including domain specific extensions such as shop opening hours,
   movie show times, or historical periods for sites of touristic

   ahill: a POI can have contained within or contains, adjecent to
   ... they are defined between POIs
   ... must have a name primitive
   ... must have an id primitive
   ... lots of debate. Does a location have an id and are we reusing
   locations when two POIs share a location?
   ... same for categories. Does a category need an ID
   ... does a POI have a single ID, or do all the element it contains
   have IDs that can be referenced

   <danbri> proposal2: any entities of interest should be able to have
   IDs, and these should be allowed to be http:-based URIs

   ahill: must have a categorization primitive. Everything has to be
   categorized otherwise it has no value (from the Navteq perspective)
   ... open to debate, but it is in the current draft to trigger more
   discussions and not forget about it

   danbri: in RDF there is no must at all. It is a very passive
   environment and you have to deal with what you have
   ... we can have best practice notes, but I feel unconfortable having
   it in the core spec as musts
   ... The POI spec needs to have a temporal aspect on the POI data as
   well as on the payload (opening hours)

   ahill: there are 3 levels: opening hours, when did the restaurant
   open, and when was the POI created

   danbri: if we have ids on everything, we can offload the temporal
   data to others

IDs, Microformats, RDFa, Open Graph Protocol and Linked Data

   Alex: Michael recommended URIs for us to use as IDs. How do we use

   danbri: If you are pointing to things anywhere on the Web, the URI
   spec is the way. If you are looking at things within the document,
   you might just have a local ID, and then a convention for --

   alex: I hit this URI and get back XML?

   danbri: Well, broken HTML.

   alex: I mean, how does this jive with XML?
   ... I can imagine that I click on this link and it returns XML for
   the King's Speech, but is that how an ID works?
   ... I'm thinking more like an XML ID attribute.

   danbri: Within an XML document, depending on the format type, there
   are different conventions for how you find these references. XHTML,
   SVG, etc will all have their own.

   alex: What is the role of IDs?
   ... A very simple standpoint, for example in KML. You can identify
   things within the scope of your document.
   ... We had a proposal that URIs are the IDs.
   ... Are they IDs that were created by the author for internal use,
   or URIs?

   jacques: In OSM, it's unique for each node.

   Carsten: We've had that for the last ten years, we issue our own
   numbers and everyone using our data knew about them and it was
   accepted. We're not going to change this particular product any time
   soon. Geo data has national bodies in the UK.
   ... You want to use the data and mash it up with those other sets
   out there, so URIs are obvious.

   <JonathanJ> Can we maintain centralized and universal unique ID ?

   danbri: There are two parts: within an XML document, how do you
   identify things within itself and how do you point out?
   ... I can write "id='foo'" and someone can, on the Web compose a URI
   from where the URI where the document lives, plus say a hash mark
   and the ID.
   ... There's been a tendency to do it different in each spec, but XML
   ID spec gives guidance.

   <JonathanJ> XML ID spec [86]http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-id/ , XML Base
   spec: [87]http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlbase/

     [86] http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-id/
     [87] http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlbase/

   matt: We would take the URI used to fetch the XML doc itself and
   combine it with the ID specified to give a unique ID to part of a
   given POI.

   alex: I'm a bit concerned that we think URIs are good, but the
   details we don't get.

   danbri: It's a bit fiddly.
   ... The linked data people tend to get excited about using HTTP URIs
   to name things. Tim put a note out saying use http identifiers to
   identify real things. People are excited about it, but I think we
   can be agnostic about it.
   ... Tim said "we can use the hash to make it not be web pages", but
   in the linked data context they can be used to reference people,
   tables, etc.

   <JonathanJ> I think we are also need URI like ID scheme

   Alex: if I have a hash in a URI, who sees it?

   matt: It depends on the client. A web browser won't send it.

   danbri: Or you get back a bunch and then look through it to find it.

   alex: But they could take the hash part out and search for the id

   danbri: People take care to make sure that before the hash is enough
   to be able to pick out the single entity.
   ... There was a ruling about this in the TAG. They said it's okay to
   name a real world thing in a URI, but as long as it sends 303

   -> [101]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuschinski Tuschinski Wikipedia

    [101] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuschinski

   danbri: There is also a web page published by the film corporation:

   -> [102]http://www.pathe.nl/bioscoop/tuschinski Tushinksi web page

    [102] http://www.pathe.nl/bioscoop/tuschinski

   danbri: You can watch movies there.

   Carsten: Is the home page about the movie, or the building?

   Ronald: The home page is about the company in the building.

   danbri: Going to the homepage, I get an embedded map showing where
   the theater is and others from the same company.

   Carsten: Do we see the POI?

   danbri: This is a nice example of pointless information barriers.
   Getting this into a navigation system is... fiddly.

   matt: And how would we make it not fiddly?

   danbri: Markup in the page using the POI standard could make a
   machine readable description of where it is, etc.

   ahill: I like that.

   <danbri> <meta name="google-site-verification"
   content="ewxq0ABm0oKTxJXMgwFYF3zVYTAH7iFbJZeQvpqY-Qw" />

   <danbri> <meta name="keywords" content="Pathe, bioscoop, film,
   amsterdam, rotterdam, den haag, eindhoven, helmond, groningen,
   utrecht, munt, arena, schouwburgplein, utrecht, rembrandt,
   metropole, filmagenda, bioscoop agenda, filmfocus, filmtheater,
   arthouse, uitgaan, belbios, nederland bioscoop agenda, nederland
   bioscoop, recensies, films, prijsvraag" />

   matt: RDF also has a form called RDFa, where "a" is attributes. You
   could have a similar thing in POI.

   alex: How would would we do this?

   danbri: We could put it in there, or put a link in via meta links.

   <danbri> <meta name="description" content="Alles over Pathé
   Tuschinski in Amsterdam. Actuele bioscoopagenda, trailers en koop je
   tickets direct online.

   <danbri> " />

   alex: It could be something DBpedia returns with a 303?
   ... A meta tag with a URI or a bunch of URIs.

   danbri: Or all the information we need could go in the page, or have
   links to nerdy computer documents.

   jacques_: But it would be using POI as a microformat?

   danbri: It could be.

   matt: I was just throwing that out there as something we could do,
   but not that we must.

   ahill: I just want concrete examples, don't care if it is right or


    [104] http://graph.danbri.org/Pogo/checker/testcases/ogp/geo1.cache


    [105] https://github.com/danbri/Pogo/blob/master/checker/testcases/ogp/geo1.cache

   <danbri> ... latter has mimetype text/html so you can see it in

   danbri: OGP is based on RDFa, it can be mapped to RDF and be used in
   all of the RDF tools.
   ... Basically using meta they defined their own property types
   "og:title" "og:type" "og:url" and "og:image", and then you want to
   'leverage' the social graph, Facebook traffic, etc, you put that at
   the top of your doc, then you put a bit of javascript and iframes.
   ... Whenever someone presses like, the facebook folks scrape this
   info from the page.
   ... There are some basic geo things in there, like lat/long and
   street address, etc.
   ... So now looking here:
   ... You can see we've extracted things from there.
   ... The good news this stuff is already happening, and it's got a
   major social network pushing it.

    [106] http://graph.danbri.org/Pogo/checker/?url=http://graph.danbri.org/Pogo/checker/testcases/ogp/geo1.cache

   ahill: We have a URI for each of those entities?

   danbri: Well here we have some nitpicky things.
   ... The particular syntax that Facebook chose wasn't about the
   restaurant itself but about the URI for the restaurant.
   ... Say there are two pages about the King's Speech, it could be on
   RottenTomatoes or IMDB. And with OGP, you only have it in one place.
   ... They wanted it simple, something that you can cut and paste in.
   They chose not to go the precise expressive route.
   ... In RDF you figure out what it's talking about by starting at the
   top of the document, you might have <head
   about="urn:ietfrestregistry43:"> and then the RDF parser knows to
   change the subject of each statement it finds.

   jacques_: We could consider RDFa representation of an XML format.
   ... We could use our own XML format and show it in RDFa.

   ahill: I can't just take XML and stuff it into this webpage. It's
   going to be interpreted as a markup tag by the browser.

   danbri: Yes, putting XML inside this would not make XML or HTML
   people happy.
   ... We'd be better linking XML from it rather than putting it in
   ... Facebook is interested in putting some json, or more within the
   body of the page.
   ... Similar to microformats.
   ... "Welcome to Fidel's fictional restaurant, we're located at
   <newmarkupforaddress>1234 Mockingbird lane</newmakrupaddress>"

   ahill: Is there any sort of established spec for doing what you just
   described there?

   danbri: There are bits and pieces on the microformat wiki. But this
   probably has more traction.

   ahill: Is this not wordy?

   danbri: It is meta, so instead of "<meta property='og:countryname'>"
   you could have "<og:countryname>", but that's not what they chose.

   danbri: They've put facebook stuff in and google stuff in.
   ... the rdf.data-vocabulary.org is from google.

   ahill: What's on the left?

   danbri: the internal identifiers.
   ... So the "_:arc*" ones are just assigned internally by the parser.

   typeof="v:Movie"> ...

    [112] http://rdf.data-vocabulary.org/

   danbri: There's an ecosystem of laziness.

   matt: Presumably there's a checker that you can type your URI into
   and facebook or google will tell you what it sees.

   danbri: If we get a nice clean format you could put stuff in an XML
   file and then link to it, and then maybe have the conversation with
   the Facebook and Google guys.
   ... Or embedding it in KML, or what have you.

   ahill: We don't really have RDFa about a movie yet.

   danbri: We don't.

   ahill: The RDFa we're looking at isn't about the movie per se.

   matt: It's not about an instance of the movie.

   ahill: In my mind we're adding a little bit of stuff to glue this
   together from a POI standpoint.
   ... some glue that in addition to all this information you can find
   this as a POI.

   danbri: The Web folks are getting better about having machine
   readable information in the Web page.

   matt: Adjourn!

   cperey: Can we review tomorrow for new attendees?

   matt: Sure. I think we should also during this week establish a
   long-term way to capture our history. We have a blog that we can
   use. I'd like to put it on the chair, but maybe we can rotate
   through it.
   ... Now we're really adjourned!

   ... what Jonathan has put up and the AR vocabulary, to extend the
   core work, what is the shape of this, get an editor

   Alex: do we have room for AR Notes? Yes, Landscape Note is part of
   what we will do

   Matt: our charter

   <matt> [19]POI Charter

     [19] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/charter/

   Matt: first is POI recommendation. Then, the charter says that we
   will produce two AR Notes. A note is slightly less rigorous thing
   ... could be published on our web site. Vocabulary to extend teh
   core recommendation Might include presentational characteristics...
   could include anything
   ... we have started the Vocabulary at all yet
   ... have NOT started yet

   <matt> scribe: matt

   cperey: It's not a gap analysis document
   ... This is more of a product feature landscape an inventory of
   what's in the products today.
   ... I'm looking to codify the standards that describe the different
   functional blocks that AR uses.

   <scribe> scribe: cperey

   <scribe> scribe: matt

   cperey: I think that this is will focus on those parts that are
   about making AR on the Web. There may be scenarios where there is a

   <scribe> scribe: cperey

   matt: this is just a starting point. we will discuss it. I think
   this will evolve into a gap analysis of current standards wrt the
   Web and AR.

   Ronald: is this group chartered to look at the full range of AR?
   ... or are we going to focus on POI

   Matt: we are broader than just the POI in this area

   bit from the charter... Dan... we should begin the conversations

   Matt: there is distinct possibility that when we get core draft
   done, we can recharter

   Alex: but I tihnk what Ronald is asking about is the AR note

   <danbri> (so where are we collecting info about geo APIs: e.g.
   [22]http://www.wikitude.org/en/developers [23]https://simplegeo.com/
   [25]https://github.com/sogeo/whatser [26]http://foursquare.com/apps/
   [28]http://code.google.com/apis/earth/ ...etc etc ...?)

     [27] http://code.google.com/apis/maps/index.html
     [28] http://code.google.com/apis/earth/

   Alex: my feeling that the AR notes was restricted to what this group
   is chartered to speak about
   ... what is the POI we are putting forward and how it applies to AR

   <matt> danbri, I'd suggest adding them to:

     [29] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Related_Specifications

   Alex: if it includes talking about 3D, then great, it probably means
   that talking about Device APIs, we don't need to cover the whole
   ... in some sense, a landscape of all existing browser is not a
   requirement of our discussion, to understand how we go forward
   ... it is not necessarily in our charter that we cover all of that

   <danbri> 'The WG may also publish use case and requirements, primers
   and best practices for Points of Interest as Working Group Notes. '

     [30] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/charter/

   Matt: should we look at list of mobile user agents on browser page

   <danbri> (so if someone e.g. wanted to make a 'how real projects are
   putting geo-related info in QR Codes, imho that'd be in scope for a
   separate Note)

   martin: supported platforms could be added to the tables

   Matt: Jonathan how d you want to proceed?

   Jonathan: I'd like to talk about the document
   ... as mentioned, the landscape is main document, browser document
   is the details of one area
   ... I have discussed with many Korean people and community
   ... gathered many criteria so far
   ... first, is the comparison targets. I think we need to make a
   narrow scope for AR apps

   <danbri> (matt, ok I've added them to
   [31]http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Related_Specifications )

     [31] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Related_Specifications

   Jonathan: because too many applications in AR domain. We can make
   technical specification for our standard. We need to narrow the
   ... I have written the features. First the .. second, linking to web
   services, third is rendering, fourth is...
   ... Collected a list in the document, about 13 products
   ... Christine made some comments. this are on the page

   Alex: where do we the line? our browser is not commercially
   ... it is in teh iTunes store but anyone can make an application.
   it's penetration is negligible but the features are important
   because it demonstrates some of what we are talking about
   ... some applications/user agents don't codify AR, read it...

   Thomas: the data standard must look at main commercial ones. because
   if the standard can't do what they say that they do

   Martin: mixare is downloadable, available outside of the laboratory

   Jonathan: need to consider extensibility

   Alex: the list is probably right.

   Martin: as soon as something is publically in use

   Matt: we stop collecting when we have all the features covered

   Alex: Google Goggles is AR
   ... Recognizes a POI
   ... information about the POI pops up
   ... it may have features

   Thomas: API for visual recognition engine could be on their roadmap.
   The feature that they have is one which AR browsers will have

   Ronald: Visual Search and AR will merge

   Martin: we can't separately Geo and Visual

   Alex/Thomas: Nokia Point and Find should be added

   ... some features I've seen demoed, are not available to everyone,
   but worth looking at and considering again

   <JonathanJ> I was referenced a good report from edinbergh univ. -

     [36] http://mobilegeo.wordpress.com/2010/11/23/comparing-ar-browsers/

   Alex: some of the things that Petros mentioned , aggregating POIs
   into footprint of buildings
   ... street view like browsing
   ... so does StreetView belong on this list

   Thomas: and you can use the gyro in your phone to see things

   Alex: it's not strictly AR

   but what should we be focused on?

   <matt> [37]Petro/Nokia's position paper

     [37] http://www.perey.com/ARStandards/Nokia_A_Web_Services_Platform.pdf

   Alex: I want to say that the definition is not tight or exclusive to
   keep StreetView and Goggles out
   ... these are close enough to be considered here

   <matt> close ACTION-39

   <trackbot> ACTION-39 Fix link for Wikitude closed

   Alex: it's remote, browser based, worth considering

   Thomas: AR is a potential output method, the same data can be viewed
   on many different applications, in an AR form if appropriate
   ... non-issue what you call AR or not

   Alex: and at some point there will be a maturation of this
   ... like VR, lots of things expanded outside the original definition

   <Zakim> danbri, you wanted to ask about qrcodes

   Alex: It's a visualization method for POI

   Dan: what about QR codes?
   ... I find AR unconstrained, it's fine, does lots of cool things
   ... useful for navigation in real time
   ... QR codes are quite well understood technoogy
   ... I'd like to make a pitch that they are in scope for this group
   ... I just want one standards thing taht is part of QR code

   <matt> [38]GIST QR codes

     [38] http://www.perey.com/ARStandards/GIST_QRCode_for_AR.pdf

   Thomas: AR should be small enough to act as a direct link to the

   <matt> [39][GIST]QR_Code_Data_Representation_for_AR.pdf QR Code Data
   Representation for AR

     [39] http://www.perey.com/ARStandards/

   Thomas: QR code is very limited in what and how much it can store

   Alex: I second what Dan is saying

   <danbri> can we resolve unanimously that this group hopes to make
   some contribution around the use of QR codes for POIs? (whether
   documenting existing practice, or suggesting a design...)

   Alex: for the notes, for us considering the implications of a POI
   standard, this use case of seeing a QR code and sanpping it is
   ... it should be in scope

   Martin: looking at the list, these are all mobile applications
   ... we should also include in scope non-mobile applications
   ... like Total Immersion things on desktop

   Alex: but didn't you (Jonathan) want to restrict it to mobile

   <danbri> re QR code capacity, see my thread last year
   [40]http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2010Apr/0007.html on
   lengths of URIs 'in the wild'

     [40] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2010Apr/0007.html

   Alex: at the same time, you could imagine street view
   ... if you have been excluding it from the discussion is the wrong
   thing to do

   Thomas: it would be ludicrous if you had to pull down data from one
   source for desktop and a different place for mobile

   <danbri> oops wrong link.
   [41]http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2010Apr/0003.html 'URI
   length statistics "in the wild"?'

     [41] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/uri/2010Apr/0003.html

   Thomas: for content providers that would be a show breaker
   ... we want to avoid all the systems that labs have done but at the
   same time, it is appropriate to include StreetView

   Alex: I recommend that it be included in the list

   Thomas: if you are dealing with image relative position, there is a
   great advantage to including them
   ... at the end of the day it is a marker and a model (3D model) on
   the marker
   ... a standard way of associating a marker and a 3D model regardless
   of where it is would be useful

   Jonathan: we need more time

   Luca: my feeling for AR is that it is something that you put on the
   real world
   ... for example, StreetView it is not exactly AR. Desktop can be
   included as long as you use a webcam to put things in teh real world

   <JonathanJ> It is not problem, what product is included or excluded

   Luca: for me, for what I include when I think AR, it is display of
   information on top of the real world. Google Maps is not AR. You do
   not see the real world

   <danbri> Luca, not everyone can see...

   Alex: if you are walking down the street and you take away the

   Jacques: you are switching from AR to mixed reaity

   Dan: is AR only for people with good vision

   Thomas: geo-located sound is in scope

   Alex: he's talking about it is synthesized background. but if you
   take away the backgrond ad you see the same content, the same
   rendering engine is doing
   ... that is Ar

   <JonathanJ> I don't think AR only for people with good vision.

   Luca: because we don't have to be on the street for us to have AR
   ... I don't want to say that only geo located can be AR. It can be
   visual recognition, sensors, printers, etc all of this is included
   and in scope

   <JonathanJ> ISSUE: what AR is our scope

   Alex: overall features.... is there anything on this list that
   doesn't make sense. I see the idea. Does it have an SDK
   ... is it using Points of Interest?

   Jonathan: I can see that filling out this table is going to get
   messy. Everyone is going to be full of caveats

   Thomas: what user interaction standards should be defined
   ... define a click action

   Alex: for me the biggest differentiation is Web 1.0 and Web 2.0
   ... whether you can put your finger on it and stretch the world,
   manipulate the model
   ... data representation is an important feature to add
   ... I think is of value. We use KML and HTML for Argon
   ... I don't know what Acrossair does

   Martin: Acrossair is closed and proprietary system

   Alex: edits into the document

   Thomas: should the data representation be separate from the POI? Is
   that important? Is that relevant to discuss

   Alex: for first pass, we list what we know about these things.
   ... filling in the table
   ... does anyone at this table know anything about Google Goggles
   data representation

   Thomas: it is probably going to be like MapAPI

   Ronald: you get XML back and you get a URL to which you can go

   Alex: is that a POI? Did it return a POI?

   Martin: is a POI tied to a location?

   Alex: if I'm standing in front of building, and I shoot an image,
   and I get the name of the building, have I got a POI?
   ... yes

   Thomas: whatever links the real world to the virtual content is POI

   Alex: I pick up my phone and I look at the courtyard and I see a
   Polar bear. it is AR.
   ... nothing is there but a lot of people who argue it is a POI
   ... sometims these lines are difficult to draw
   ... we agree that kooaba is returning data and POI

   Ronald: It's JSON. No ties to any other standards at this time

   Alex: but the JSON is returning POI and data
   ... maybe because what we need is a column that describs how we are
   triggering in some sense
   ... Have it in the table
   ... why don't we change user interaction

   Dan: finish the column
   ... ovijet
   ... put proprietary

   Jonathan: they are visual search

   thomas: what about user rotation in the POI spec?

   ronald: we've discussed the orientation of content, but not the
   orientation of the user

   martin: we need to separate meta data of POI, geo-location and data
   representation (visualization)

   <matt> scribe: cperey

   martin: we need a clear separation. We go to this point and not

   Alex: I never felt that our responsibility would be to render teh
   ... the question is how do we facilitate teh data coming with the

   Thomas: there is some overlap, may want inline data with teh POI you
   don't want to link to a remote text file if you want only a two

   Bertine: maybe a CSS?

   Alex: we all have in our minds, ideas of POIs that include lable and
   ... you're saying that's so cannonical that we don't want an extra
   standards for describing that
   ... does this argue that there should be a place in teh standard to
   relate that?

   Thomas: you wouldn't embed a JPEG in an HTML page
   ... same with a model. If you have a short bit of text it makes more
   sense for it to be in line
   ... it has to be related
   ... needs to be standard for a simple label annotation. It needs to
   be in a Standard

   Ronald: we have name primitive in our browser
   ... style sheet is not directly part of POI Spec
   ... you can say that POI Spec has a couple of fields but up to the
   specific browser to show content of a particular type

   Thomas: but does the creator of content want to specify how it is

   Ronald: yes, but not in the POI spec
   ... the question is if it is part of POI. Or if you have a link to
   the visualization within the POI

   ThomasL should POI include a class reference

   Martin: KML does something like that

   Essentially what you have is an XML represetnation of a POI

   Martin: do we define a new POI standard. KML defines almost
   everything we have talked about
   ... our proposal is to eliminate all of the stuff we do not need in
   ... we pull the KML tags we need and we add AR tags we need

   Alex: let's say that the way you describe coordinates, if you
   disagree with that then you would be leaving the standard

   Thomas: simple differences like Lat vs. Latitude

   Alex: funny to hear say that. Dan was showing how we could put RDFa
   into a web page. Lots of angle brackets. Seems a little verbose
   ... point of view, perspective changes the definition of "verbose"

   probably not worth it for us to invent another way to represent

   Alex: at some point we are going to need to peruse other standards
   and come up with ways to improve them

   WGS84, etc

   Alex: we need to get down to brass tacks and say who's description
   we are adopting and what we think it is going to look at

   Alex: back to KML, we were talking about representation.... I'm
   not... not to say it's not the right way to approach it but in our
   KARML version, we take desription tag

   and it is HTML. YOu can have styles. Put some text in and browser
   would render as a default, but you can add HTML for presentaiton.
   You could imagine extending , add some SVG instead

   Alex: so in that case, now the data is inline with the POI
   ... the isue is that in some circumstances we want a link to
   presentation data. so effectively, we get the POI data, it has a
   link to Web Page, and that's the data we want to present in AR
   ... yesterday we were looking at the entire web page. bottm line is
   the minimal set that we want to allow people to inline

   Dan: there are part of the HTML ....

   you can ask it to bring back a really simple version

   Dan: can't remember the header names. At the HTTP level thre's a
   whole set of ...

   <matt> alex: How common is content negotiation?

   matt: very common, gzip

   <matt> matt: Depends on the content types. For instance, most
   browsers support saying "I accept HTML, and gzipped HTML" -- this is
   widely deployed.

   content negotiation, if we define a format with its own MIME type,
   one of its characteristics could be its compressed

   Dan: wikipedia might implement it

   <danbri> see [57]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_negotiation

     [57] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_negotiation

   Ronald: web servers also try to figure out what type to send

   Alex: but that's not reducing what gets sent, it is an efficiency

   Thomas: yes it is

   Martin: one question return to. What metadata
   ... do we really need a separate POI Standard separate from what
   already exists? can't we just pull out what we need form KML?

   Marin: what tags would we really need?

   Alex: we agree with you in general

   Matt: we would take a profile of GML and augment with our specific

   Thomas: we need metadata. If there's an existing standard we should
   use it

   <danbri> (re existing standards, also

     [58] http://www.georss.org/Main_Page
     [59] http://geojson.org/

   Alex: we only chose KML because it was the broadest adopted markup

   Not because we said it was the most/best

   Alex: so yes, if you say GML, I agree
   ... I imagine in the future what we are adding to the dialog is
   quite small

   matt: Yes, it could be a profile of GML.

   Martin and Alex are in agreement

   <JonathanJ> s/profiel/profile/

   <Zakim> danbri, you wanted to assert that extensions shouldn't be an

   Dan: yeah there's all these existing standards
   ... we've already begun picking up common elements
   ... story how they are the same is useful. Strongest we can do is
   ... figuring out the specific use cases, to specify how different
   datasets are represented
   ... connecting hop between what other's do and what AR does/needs is
   what we can do

   Thomas: ...
   ... it needs to be automatically coming up when the conditinos are

   Dan: value adding services need to be able to bring out their data
   and the people to publish POI data to provide connections between
   their data and other data without W3C coming up with new vocabulary

   Thomas doesn't need to define a movie database format

   Dan: example of semantic markup,

   <matt> scribe: Matt

   ahill: When you say linked data is the way to go, can you describe
   it? I'm walking down the street looking for particular data, and
   you're talking about returning links?

   Thomas: machine readable links.

   ahill: My browser could follow these links and add information from
   these databases. We don't need to reinvent how to do that by any
   ... What do we need to do to facilitate this?
   ... Some people might argue that we would need a registry to
   facilitate these things.

   Thomas: I don't think so.

   danbri: Maybe at a high level to bring them all together, but the
   Web is it's own regsitry.

   <JonathanJ> see Linked Data -

     [60] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linked_Data

   danbri: I'm walking along and my phone is relating my location to
   some service. I get a notification that there is a movie playing
   nearby with actors you like in it.

   ahill: My project is relaying this to proxies who then go find this
   information out, rather than from the device directly.
   ... What is the difference between agent based semweb stuff and AR?

   thomas: I don't think there is one.

   ahill: Good, rather than reinvent the wheel we can piggy-back on
   other efforts.

   cperey: I want to throw a monkey wrench in this: you haven't paid
   for this information. There should be a token to authorize that
   agent. It's not all just for free.

   -> [61]http://ietherpad.com/VVKVaoHANE scratch pad

     [61] http://ietherpad.com/VVKVaoHANE

   cperey: Then there are ethics, laws. Is this person looking for
   illegal stuff?
   ... I just looked at a building and it had one picture, but now it
   has another, who has the rights for changing that?

   Thomas: I don't think that's up for us to implement it.

   cperey: Don't you want it in a standardized fashion?

   Thomas: There are already standards for these things, SSL,
   certificates, etc.

   cperey: Then we need to write that there are other standards that we
   could use.

   ahill: I don't see the AR uniqueness here. So we don't have to worry
   about it then.

   Ronald: There are security standards.

   ahill: People are solving those problems already.

   cperey: People aren't solving the problem of predatory real-estate.

   Thomas: There's not going to be a one-to-one relationship, the user
   choses to accept whatever datapublisher they wish.
   ... If I use a mail service, I'm going to have their ads, that's
   known. Whatever source we use is going to be responsible for the
   adverts, etc.

   ahill: Another thing we're doing in Argon is offloading to the proxy
   server under the acknowledgement that search becomes a bigger issue
   when you walk over to a place and it has 1000 POIs, that's a mess.
   Your trust network, who your friends or whatever, is really going to
   affect it.
   ... We have to acknowledge that at one location there will be a
   large number of things people have vied to get there.

   <Zakim> danbri, you wanted to say 3 things before brain fills up: i)
   thinking about incentives is good; in my simple scenario, tushinki
   haveincentive to get customers ii) those are real

   danbri: You're right to think about incentives. In the movie case,
   they want customers. If we do something as simple as Facebook,
   they'll get customers.
   ... The social issues exist. We'll have to look at them.
   ... And last, oauth is a big piece of this. They want their app to
   work and be deployable to lots of devices. OAuth seems to be the
   solution of choice at the moment for that.

   Thomas: I think there is a lot of power to come from it. I don't
   think it's up to us to decide on that.
   ... The spec shouldn't require a third part auth.

   Ronald: Responding to Christine's suggestion to standardize the too
   much content problem: I'm not sure that's really feasible. Are
   search engine results standardized in how they order things?
   ... No. That area of discovery of information, I'm not sure it's
   ... It's a real problem for AR, but not necessarily one that gets
   solved by standardization.

   Thomas: It's a big issue and so much room for innovation that I
   think that is where clients will differentiate.

   cperey: How do you formulate the query could be standardized, but
   not how the response is formulated.
   ... When I heard query POI I was thinking: "Oh, that's talking about
   a directory of POIs", which isn't the same thing as querying.
   ... "These are my circumstances, here's a query for that" vs a
   directory of layers/channels.

   <danbri> (ahill, if someone queries for Amsterdam Red Light
   District, their AR service(s) should route them to
   [62]http://www.coe.int/t/DG2/TRAFFICKING/COMICS/ )

     [62] http://www.coe.int/t/DG2/TRAFFICKING/COMICS/

   <danbri> (but that's a marketplace thing)

   Ronald: In the end from our findings, it was quite difficult to get
   to something that the user really valued.

   ahill: With them being the authority.
   ... No one on the web has defined how to index content in a
   standardized way.

   cperey: There's SEO. In libraries we used the Dewey decimal system
   and found that to be useful.

   bertine: I think the difference with the library example is that
   books are static.

   Thomas: It could start off fantastic and then get swamped with ads.
   ... The order shouldn't be defined, but the request could be, is
   that right?

   Martin: Web pages care about being ordered, but that's all search
   engine based.

   Ronald: There is part of the HTML specification with keyword
   ... That gives content providers a way to find the right

   ahill: Sounds like when possible we could leverage such things.

   Thomas: metadata on the Web isn't useful anymore, hard to trust.
   ... search engines basically ignore metadata these days.

   ahill: That's a shifting tide thing though. Might have been useful
   years ago though.

   <danbri> google do use

     [63] http://googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/2009/05/introducing-rich-snippets.html

   ahill: So how do we standardize around it?

   Thomas: There will likely be AR search engines that look into the AR
   data and figure out if it's being abused.

   <danbri> (you need another signal for trust and quality, eg. google
   rank, or facebook LIKE, ... then metadata can be exploited)

   cperey: Is this matching our agenda?

   matt: Is it what the group wants to talk about?

   ahill: I think we should talk about these things now.
   ... I think the tone is that AR is going to be visually based. I
   think people see that as something very different than the kind of
   AR we have today.
   ... I think the points where these things come together is maybe
   location and description.
   ... Take the visual sensor example. I'm agnostic about the sensor.

   cperey: That whole thing is heavily what the interface that the
   sensor web folks worked on.

   Thomas: That's why I like to call them triggers.
   ... I'd argue that the POI has to contain the trigger.

   matt: I don't understand why trigger has to be a unique part of the

   Ronald: I think we said that the trigger is part of the location
   primitive, maybe not using that word.

   <JonathanJ> I'd like to suggest to make another document, something
   like "Requirements and Use Case for Linked POIs" by danbri

   ahill: I could do a search around me and get 100 POIs around me, one
   of them is this cup. Some people want to call this a trigger, some
   people like me want to just say "I have the means to know I am in
   front of this cup".

   Thomas: The difference I see is the metadata what you use to search
   with, while the trigger is an automatic thing.
   ... For instance the only ones that are in the field of view are

   danbri: It's not up to the objects to determine that.

   .pdf trigger position paper

     [64] http://www.perey.com/ARStandards/MOB_PatternsOfInterest_Proposal.pdf

   ahill: Looking at a web page there's a ton of links. You scroll down
   and click on any of these things with the mouse. The triggers thing
   seems to be a way to simplify that, but it's more complicated than
   that, I could have preferences, etc.

   Thomas: I'm thinking it's just more of a passive thing. Something
   that appears merely by association. A browser may or may not display
   them. I think there's a clear differentiation between active and
   passive things.

   ml trigger by Thomas

     [65] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-poiwg/2010Dec/0011.html

   martinL: I think location then is a trigger as well.

   matt: Why isn't any data in the POI a trigger?

   Ronald: It sounds like search criteria.

   Thomas: While you could search to have something appear
   automatically, it's not automatic. I search and don't get all of
   those results popping out all at one time.

   <JonathanJ> POIs could be crawlable by search engine ?

   Thomas: With AR there's a lot more automatic than the Web. We can't
   just have users activating everything manually.

   ml in the public mailing list

     [66] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-poiwg/2010Aug/0053.html

   Thomas: I think it's the association of where the content creation
   believes the data should be put, whether it's image/location/sound
   based. That's slightly different than what the user wants to see at
   any given time.

   ahill: Imagine there's a landscape with one item. The author
   specifies where it is, what it looks like,etc. That's AR, I don't
   need the word trigger yet to filter that.
   ... I need an argument for the word trigger now.

   Thomas: I think you need a way to represent the association.
   ... A way to associate the data you want and an intended location.

   martinL: Alex said filter, I like that, that's essentially what it

   cperey: no!

   ahill: We're talking about filter at one place, and then this
   trigger that describes the POI that is there.

   bertine: It's trigger like a landmine, not a trigger like a gun.

   Thomas: We can call it something else if trigger is confusing.

   danbri: I found it confusing on the mailing list.

   ahill: It's a linkage between place and content.

   Thomas: I'd say it's part of the linkage.
   ... There's two parts: what causes it and what goes to it.
   ... The trigger is what causes you to go to it.

   danbri: So is it up to the client to recognize the class of thing?

   Thomas: Yes.

   ahill: Is this linkage a POI that the spec is to connect data (SVG,
   HTML, COLLADA models) to a context of the user. That is our charge.
   ... Then when you talk about seeing a pen and using a trigger, it
   makes it confusing.
   ... A lot of people think "I see this and something is going to
   happen" -- that's a somewhat different subject.

   <danbri> 'trigger' for me has a strong imperative reading, ... that
   the 'triggering' is inevitable

   Thomas: The POI is a link between real and virtual.
   ... I was using trigger or whatever the word is to indicate the
   category of the sensor that you're correlating to.

   ahill: So, there is a unique item, if I got a description of how to
   recognize it visually, I could dereference that eventually to the
   exact location on this table and then it's just like a movie
   theater, or whatever.
   ... So it's the same, but a different matter of how we get there.
   ... Then there's the example of "every pen that looks like this" --
   which is a reasonable use case, but to me it's more of a pattern
   than a trigger to me.

   <JonathanJ> POI trigger is like this ? -

     [67] http://www.azouk.com/218107/Context-information-as-enhancement-for-mobile-solutions-and/

   ahill: Now, say every building from a company sets aside an area for
   AR, and that's a pattern. Buses could have a sign on the side --

   Thomas: How do you find it if the data isn't there in the POI?

   ahill: I know I'm in a store, I look at my coordinates, dereference
   and I'm done.

   Thomas: But that store is static. This is ludicrous, then the bus
   must relay it's coordinates to a server then the client has to fetch
   ... I have nothing against publishing moving coordinates.
   ... I also think that POIs should be able to specify relative
   coordinates. I just don't think you can limit it to just the
   coordinate space.

   ahill: This just isn't unique to the domain of visual recognition. I
   think we will use visual recognition, I'm just saying that visual
   triggering can happen the same way by other means
   ... I'm more inclined to push it towards a special case in some

   Thomas: To me we need both. The most basic visual recognition is QR
   codes. That's literally just an image that is then decoded to a URL.

   ahill: But that's not a trigger, that's just a linkage.

   Thomas: We're associating an image with data, that's just as useful
   as associating coordinates, whether static or moving.
   ... The POI needs the capacity for both.

   ahill: We need both, but they're not different enough in my mind
   that they can't be handled.

   Thomas: I'm just saying a field in the POI that has coordinates or
   an image.

   ahill: This is what Ronald was alluding to, that a location could
   have a visual description of pen.

   Ronald: And it can be a combination of geo and visual too.

   cperey: How it's stored is part of the POI, but not what is in

   Ronald: Sure, the algorithms will change, etc.

   cperey: The device which detects those conditions on behalf of a
   user, whether mobile or stationary, is using sensors.

   ahill: Something like identifying a particular pen could have a
   number of criteria, so how do you author it. My sensor is going to
   be picking up that pen all over, but it's not necessarily going to
   be triggered.

   Thomas: The system would have the image criteria already in it's

   cperey: You're never looking at the real object, you're just
   encoding those unique features that identify that class of object.
   Only those features, so you have an extremely fine sample, you're
   not walking around sending entire photographs of the pen around to
   be detected.

   Ronald: Most of the time you're sending an image from the mobile to
   a server.

   Thomas: There can be client side recognition.

   cperey: But the point is the server side would probably just
   maintain the extracted features for recognition.

   ahill: if I want to recognize this computer, I take multiple image
   that then get distilled down to something recognizable.

   <Carsten> Morning, just wanted to have a quick look at what you guys
   are doing

   martinL: I don't think there's a chance of standardization there as
   under different conditions have different better algorithims.

   <danbri> (lunch-7.5 mins and counting....)

   <Zakim> danbri, you wanted to discuss pre-lunch recap. Any actions

   danbri: Where are we? We've been chatting, but what action items are
   coming out of this?

   cperey: We've been here before, and we've had people with agendas
   from geo-physical data that they want to solve.

   ahill: And they didn't want this in scope.

   matt: That's not what I saw at the last f2f.

   cperey: In the next few minutes, the composition of the people in
   the group has shifted a bit. And it can shift back.

   ahill: This is the part of the meeting where we are addressing AR
   stuff. We are talking about what are the implications? How does the
   POI stuff relate to AR?

   cperey: This is entirely in scope as the subject of long/lat.
   ... And the traditional problems of those who own large POI

   ahill: Our existing spec solves that. It allows the POI database
   folks to add WGS 84 coord and a name/description/ec.
   ... Our existing spec also allows for a pen POI with a visual
   description and an unknown location.

   <danbri> (this is a good time to have people make commitments to do
   things, and to record those in the issue tracker. I'd be happy to
   take an action to summarise what I could find out about encoding of
   URIs in QR Codes, for example)

   ahill: In my mind I've got a search that includes "pen's that belong
   to Layar" -- I have those POIs, but I may not be displaying them. To
   me that's not any different than a POI that's on a building over
   there that's occluded by a building over there.
   ... I don't see it as any different than things popping in there.

   Thomas: 99% of the time they'll be preloaded, there is a lot of
   precaching and displaying later.

   ahill: You're interests, your context at the moment, those things
   all determine context that determine which POIs are in my browser

   danbri: If this room has a POI, there's a URI to it.

   Thomas: QR code could be the link.

   <scribe> ACTION: danbri to summarize URIs in QR codes to POIWG group
   [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-41 - Summarize URIs in QR codes to POIWG
   group [on Dan Brickley - due 2011-04-06].

   ahill: In my mind our spec at the moment could work for a QR code
   with linkage to some data.
   ... I could imagine a QR code being the equivalent of a pen being

   Thomas: There's also the case where the QR code could contain the
   POI itself, QR codes don't have to be links.

   ahill: Practically what is happening? I see a QR code, it's got a
   URL, I get back a POI. It needs to be linked to something physical,
   maybe it's a marker to track, or the QR code itself, or four inches
   from the phone. That's the POI, the QR code is a specific means to
   encode the URL and there's a separation there.

   Thomas: I am seeing a scenario where the QR code decodes to a link
   which has a POI which then may link to the 3D model.
   ... But the QR code could be just the POI itself and go directly to
   the 3D model.

   <JonathanJ> QR code can encode in other many information bytes.

   ahill: I see that you want to be pragmatic about the links followed
   etc, but I'm not sure that's what we need to accomodate in our

   Thomas: Perhaps not specifically, but it would be nice.
   ... We're talking a minimal spec and lots of optionals. Maybe the
   small thing could be in a QR code.

   ahill: In our lab we worked with markers for ever, and now they're
   totally out. We recognize full-on images, which doesn't have any
   data encoded in those images. I could imagine that some day if we
   did push for QR codes that people would laugh at us in the future.

   Thomas: I see advantages to not having the data require a separate

   ahill: I think no one here wants to create a byzantine set of links.
   ... We've had a lot of discussion but no consensus.

   <JonathanJ> we need raise issues

   ahill: I think we can resolve that our POI standard that we've put
   forward accommodates many different scenarios.
   ... Whether it handles triggers, image recognition, etc. I've
   resolved in my mind that we haven't excluded any of those things. We
   haven't excluded any representations too, like COLLADA models, or
   ... I think that's valuable, as someone always pipes up on something
   like this and then we have the discussion again. I don't think we
   should have to do this conversation again.

   <danbri> do we agree? "...that there are lots of ways of identifying
   relevant POI descriptions, including GPS, QR Codes, image
   recognition (of specific things, of types of thing, of places,
   people, RFIDs. W3C POI data should be easily associated via various
   such techniques, and not be rigidly tied to any particular
   association mechanism."

   <JonathanJ> +1

   <Ronald> +1

   PROPOSED RESOLUTION: There are lots of ways of identifying relevant
   POI descriptions, including GPS, QR Codes, image recognition (of
   specific things, of types of thing, of places, people, RFIDs). W3C
   POI data should be easily associated via various such techniques,
   and not be rigidly tied to any particular association mechanism.

   <JonathanJ> s/%1D//

   Thomas: future issue: are the different criterias and-ed or or-ed?

   <danbri> ... not hearing any objections; are we resolved?

   ahill: True. I think people handle lots of this sort of thing in
   code. I think if people want conditions... they write code.

   RESOLUTION: There are lots of ways of identifying relevant POI
   descriptions, including GPS, QR Codes, image recognition (of
   specific things, of types of thing, of places, people, RFIDs). W3C
   POI data should be easily associated via various such techniques,
   and not be rigidly tied to any particular association mechanism.

   Thomas: It's a fair point that we don't want to go into the logic
   too much.
   ... If you make a web page you don't have to code the functionality
   of a link. Metaphorically we're working on the equivalent of that,

   ahill: I won't disagree with that. We're trying to provide some
   structure that keeps people from writing code to present data.

   cperey: Is this called a "data format"?
   ... Because the OMA folks said specifically say they're considering
   doing an AR data format.
   ... I think these two words have universal meaning.

   ahill: I'm concerned about making such a statement that is someone
   will say "POI is not an AR data format". I'd be inclined to say that
   our POI data format can be used for AR and we have specifically
   taken note of it. We haven't created a specific AR data format, but
   we believe it could be applied to that.

   <JonathanJ> "AR data format" can include anything

   ahill: I'd be hesitant to say it's an "AR data format".

   Ronald: There's a reason there's a Core data format.

   matt: And part of that is because there are other things that will
   use the POI format without being AR.

   ahill: AR is the linkage format.

   ... we have (after Time and Cat) Relationship Primitive-- not
   something to be done in a smaller group
   ... then we have location, which is core

   Thomas: agree that we need to work together

   Alex: we might start with something circumspect
   ... location can get messy

   Ronald: agree that location is pretty complex

   Alex: begin with time

   <matt> [81]Time primitive

     [81] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Core/Draft#time_primitive

   Alex: POI must--> can have a time primitive
   ... could be time when business is opened and closed
   ... that is relegated to metadata, not the primary function of POI
   ... time when this POI was created. This falls in provenance
   ... time that this thing came into existence.
   ... it's not obvious that every POI needs to come into existence and

   Thomas: if you say that something exists in this range of time, you
   are saying that we will move the user forward and backward in time

   Alex: Google earth (KML) has a time stamp and time Span

   <matt> [82]KML Time primitive

     [82] http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlreference.html#timeprimitive

   Alex: Time Stamp says when and a date
   ... Time Span has a beginning and an end
   ... this is used in Google earth, to slide back in time to see
   content in past
   ... that's about the extent that we need to define

   Thomas: suggestion that we have one more, ideally, time stamp of the
   last time the data was updated.
   ... it is useful for the client to know if they need to download it
   again or not

   Expiration date

   Thomas: it is a form of time which is useful
   ... Modification time

   Ronald: might be better to put this in the metadata primitive

   <matt> [[what about recurring time sets? (e.g. open hours) or
   relative times? (a store has open hours relative to the hours of the
   mall it is in)]]

   Alex: this is where the conversation has gotten baroque
   ... lots of attributes you might want to stamp
   ... let's say some linked data has a date stamp

   Thomas: technical level it is only necessity to have this type of
   time stamp in the linked data

   Alex: how many links are we limiting a POI to?

   Thomas: thinking it was One
   ... if it is more than one, it could be a time stamp per linked data

   Alex: we ask for header, pull out o fheader, say no I don't want the
   data. Ct short the request, inspect the header

   Thomas: COLLADA, X3D don't have those types of headers, may be wrong
   on that

   Alex: is that our scope? to provide mechanism for lInk data to
   provide an expiration data

   Ronald: don't think so. I'm not sure it is valuable. Adds too much
   complexity. In Layar we have.... to all the links (do they all need
   modification time stamp)
   ... in our concept they are all linked to the same POI

   Thomas: i don't want clients to constantly update/download big files
   to see if it has been updated recently or not

   Matt: HTML has this distinction
   ... it gets messy

   We need a data modification

   Ronald: in Layar definition, we have a single modificaation time and
   that it applies to all the data

   Alex: concerned that utility might be limited. People might
   over-ride it. Head did not really capture what we wanted

   Thomas: adamant that either it is possible to do this without time
   stamp, if it can't be done, it has to be there
   ... if not possible to do in header, it HAS to be in POI
   ... this could cause huge problems down the road.

   Alex: that's a good argument for time modification time stamp, time
   span, time of applicability, could have a beginning and end

   Matt: when this is being served over HTTP, these headers.... and any
   other transport mechanism must similarly

   <danbri> (ok i've requested a poiwg repo for testcases etc to be
   added at [83]http://dvcs.w3.org/hg ... time to read the Mercurial

     [83] http://dvcs.w3.org/hg

   Alex: if other POI query other links, they want to be able to send a
   time stamp to you to relect how recently the underlying digital
   object has been updated

   <matt> matt: Basically, I think we should say "if you are
   transporting POIs over HTTP, you should be setting these X,Y, Z
   headers with the appropriate values. Other transport mechanisms
   should likewise provide such information."

   matt: If I got a POI and it indicated that something has been
   changed, then it is my responsibility to go through and check each
   and to identify which elements have been updated

   Alex: save the consumers of this data having to go through the
   subsegments and check this "manually"

   Jacques: this is a basic feature of collaborative AR

   Alex: can you please expand or give an example?

   Jacques: for example, for guidance application, someone is outside,
   blind person, and you are looking in VR on a map, and you want to
   change some audio POI
   ... so you need to know when the audio POI can be changed

   Alex: there's just me

   Jacques: the expert is remote

   the person in teh field

   Jacques: you can change the content of a POI

   Alex: there's a POI, and we want a way to indicate that the user
   (remote person changed the POI) that the content has changed

   the browser needs to know that the content has changed

   Alex: the POI has changed, how does the browser find out about it?

   Thomas: this is a pull or push thing. This is web page expiration.
   ... if you are using a different protocol, it is not for us to
   decide which protocol i sused.

   <JonathanJ> I think it seems like POI trigger, or POI pushing

   Thomas: any additional downloads are the result, not the ....

   Matt: the information about the delivery of the POI goes OUTSIDE of
   the POI itself
   ... It's in the envelope

   Thomas: if can is virtual. and the person decides to move it. Change
   the POI location. It would not change the mesh of the can.
   ... So therefore the client would not be redownloading it, it would
   download the POI data but not the attached model

   Ronald: we are talking aout the modificaiton time

   Alex: we have the POI. The model has changed teh same. Location has
   been updated. Does the POI modification time change?
   ... the POI is in the local agent. Either I need to poll it or it
   needs to be pushed to me


   Thomas: you don't need to transmit the update time
   ... just needs to communicate that the .... has been updated

   Alex: look at a POI and knowing when it was updated sounds fine,

   Thomas: The header may be a way to do this.
   ... the client may need to check to make sure if it has been updated

   Alex: isn't that what happens already?
   ... in the web browser?

   Thomas: the server gives recommendations about when to refresh

   Martin: there are metatags

   Alex: there's a big image, already local (cache) is it not pretty
   much the case that you have to tell the browser, hey that changed
   ... the image doesn't have meta, no header, we don't have a
   mechanism for that
   ... that's a problem, but it is not clear that it is our problem

   <martinL> +1 for alex

   Thomas: if it can't be done in the header, there's not another
   solution than to have it in the POI recommendation

   Alex: reluctant to shoe horn this into the POI spec

   Ronald: do we really want to have changeable mesh models

   Thomas: most of these things will be fairly static. Meshes will
   probably be the same
   ... update time stamp is a simple solution

   Alex: the problem is that it is a Macro, it is global to th POI, but
   not specific to what part of it changed, so it doesn't really solve
   the problem

   Thomas; you need one orientation per link

   Alex: no, I argue that you don't need that
   ... if there are multiple link, and oriented differently, but the
   base the frame of reference from which they are, that's what a
   single orientation accomplishes
   ... it sets down a frame of reference. It's not the billboarding
   ... it is that a single point in space... arbirtarily given is not

   <Luca> etag or any metatagit's better to understand i something has
   changed instead of timestamp that can't be unique for all the client

   Alex: a discussion about time for POI, needs to be very specific.
   What is it about POI that need time?
   ... what is inherent to POI?

   <Luca> [84]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_ETag

     [84] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_ETag

   Alex: a time that this POI applies, whatever that means, that time
   period is really the need for the POI
   ... In agreement that we should at least have that one
   ... this is where have to decide what we do now. Do we hunt around
   for time specs?

   Dan: really wished that we have the use cases
   ... the use cases is approach that if a user wants
   ... can we get 5 POI in english

   <matt> scribe: matt

   danbri: Let's get some use cases

   Thomas: 1. A hot dog stand that is occasionally there, but also has
   open/closed hours.

   danbri: What else might you want to know? Health inspections?

   ahill: Yes, sure, let's throw it into our examples.

   Thomas: 2. A historical church that used to exist and is now

   ahill: 3. A congregation that was at a church for a period of time.
   The physical building may have it's own POI, but the type of church
   might only be there for a period of time.

   danbri: Maybe people are exploring their roots.

   cperey: Maybe a timestamp around when a member of the congregation
   can be trusted or not.

   Thomas: This might be linked data from the POI to the person, rather
   than inline.

   ahill: Agree on that.
   ... Is a person a POI? It's really hard for me to make a good
   argument that people are not points of interest.

   Ronald: If that cup of coffee is a POI and I'm not, I'll be

   [[general agreement]]

   cperey: The congregant, the congregation and the space in which they
   all may be are all distinct.

   ahill: In the last f2f the major concern about these things were
   that if we do this we'll have to describes everything and anything.

   martinL: 4. Football stadium that is open on Mondays and sometimes

   Thomas: I think at some level of complexity it becomes a manual

   <danbri> for recurring events, see

     [88] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICalendar#Events_.28VEVENT.29

   martinL: I wouldn't say we want to get too complex, but we then need
   to have multiple time elements.

   Ronald: If we can multiple POI times then we're there.

   cperey: What about a church that adds wings?

   Thomas: I'd argue that's a different POI.

   martinL: I think it should be one of the examples, you might have
   one POI with a time slider.

   ahill: If I am driving down the street, I see the church, not the
   sub POIs, the altar, toilet, etc. I'm interested in the church, now
   and I'm sliding through time and these things become obvious and

   <danbri> ronald, re calendar/rdf stuff also

   <danbri> ...and microformat markup for events

     [90] http://microformats.org/wiki/hcalendar-brainstorming

   Thomas: The specs for times seem pretty good.

   ahill: We don't have the spec for it yet from us.

   Ronald: If we're talking about existence then a single time span is
   sufficient. The other use cases where it's opening hours and things
   that change, then that's different.

   cperey: Should it be in the spec?

   ahill: In practical use for these things a time span is something
   you can include then if you don't include it it's right now and
   ... If you have one time span, then you could imagine that being a
   situation where you could see two of them.
   ... If two time spans get delivered with a POI, there's just two
   time spans, what would it break? There's not a parent/child

   Thomas: So you'd treat them as an or relationship?

   ahill: Talk of "will that hot dog stand be there?" is really about
   future things and not real time.

   Thomas: Do we have a proposed format?

   ahill: I think we can look at what's here and figure it out.

   cperey: And then apply it to the use cases.

   ahill: We're going to have a POI time, we've got a fundamental unit
   of time. It doesn't describe a duration.
   ... I think it just says a duration of two hours, rather than a
   start/end time.
   ... I think if the spec we looked at had a begin/end time then KML
   would have used it.

   Ronald: I remember this discussion and don't remember the outcome.
   Do we store the entire history, or not?

   ahill: I think we can say we don't store the history in the POI.
   ... KML breaks some of these apart too. Not necessarily embedded.

   Thomas: Merely having a date span then you have the possibility of
   history through multiple POIs. Assign them to different dates with
   same location.

   ahill: You can use a POI to do that, or not. Or you could have
   metadata to do it in one POI. You don't have to use it either way.

   Thomas: Then you have to be very precise in the metadata itself. It
   becomes not metadata but data.
   ... The metadata should be describing the content, not the content.

   ... If I remodel my house, it's still my house. Some people are not
   going to like the idea that it's a different POI.
   ... If POIs have URIs, then people are going to want to have a
   stable URI to describe the building.
   ... Your proposed solution does not solve everything.

   Thomas: Yours would have multiple time stamps that seems more
   complex than new POIs.

   matt: I think there are use cases for both. If you want a historical
   slider, you include multiple time stamps, and if you want a
   canonical representation of the house now, then you don't put in
   multiple timestamps.

   ahill: Thomas you're also assuming that the model has to be tied to
   the POI. There could be a separation, could be from a different
   database, different metadata.

   Thomas: They'd be different POIs then.

   ahill: I think this is semantics.

   danbri: What are we talking about?

   ahill: There are two constituencies, one that wants historical and
   one that wants permanence.

   Thomas: If you don't want the history then you could have it be on
   POI, but if you want history then you want multiple POIs.

   <danbri> matt, good question

   ahill: There was some convention for mutation of points.

   martinL: Essentially we're talking about the visualization changes
   over time.
   ... We have the data and the visualizations are different.

   Thomas: No. I see this as the same as CSS and HTML. DIfferent things
   sent to different clients based on specs or whatever criteria.
   ... If you've got data associated with it, that too is a piece of
   ... My instinct is different POIs with different time spans.

   ahill: The spec will let both work.

   Thomas: Then you have to be prepared to spec out multiple timespans.
   Is that ok?

   ahill: Yes.

   Ronald: Didn't we agree that the history is outside of the spec?

   ahill: Yes, but we're using different history means here.

   matt: We've been talking about these primitives as a building block
   that can be used in different ways.

   ahill: So we've been saying that the POI might have a time and the
   location may have a time.
   ... It's a bit of a can of worms.

   ahill: If in the end we get something that's very close to GML, I
   think that's OK.
   ... This could be very similar to what we did with KHARML and KML.
   We had things we needed to add.

   PROPOSED RESOLUTION: The world is complicated.

   ahill: I remember that someone said openstreetmap has a time
   definition as well

   jacques: for opening hours for shopping centers, not XML, but in
   ... it is very easy and compact

   luca: we should prepare some use case to define the timestamp to
   check whether each language is good or not
   ... for example, for movie show times, we need to decide what is in
   scope or out of scope

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-44 - Place some examples in mercurial [on

   luca: my question was because the discussion was very wide regarding
   the POI we can describe, but we should start with something easy to
   get started
   ... and maybe in the second draft add other use cases

   <danbri> we have to start simple for starters, maybe with a bias
   towards re-using nearby related specs (like icalendar)

   ahill: GML, KML refer to ISO for timestamps, but it is a more
   fundamental concept
   ... in KML, there is a time primitive, which is an abstract class of
   which timestamp and timespan extend

   thomas: are we ready to move to the next item

   alex: let's talk about categories

   <matt> [107]Category Primitive

    [107] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Core/Draft#categorization_primitive

Core Drafting: Category Primitive

   christine: we talked about categories before, and the general
   thinking was

   cperey: IETF and ? have done a lot of work on documenting not just
   places of interest
   ... they have their own structure for categories
   ... governments and international bodies have their own category
   systems, hierarchical systems, beautiful systems

   <ahill> [108]http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/geopriv/charter/

    [108] http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/geopriv/charter/

   cperey: it is unlikely that we as an organization pick one system
   ... we are insufficient domain experts
   ... there are experts out there, but not at our table. Henning has
   not replied and does not seem interested

   thomas: is category going to be a required field

   ahill: no
   ... it is not required, but in most cases it is valueable

   <matt> PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Category primitive is NOT required

   ahill: I can imagine a character string "category", but it is not
   going to solve the problem. For example we might need to support
   multiple categories
   ... we might need to make our own category, and people can choose to

   cperey: but it is better to reuse existing category systems

   thomas: it could just be a link

   cperey: exactly

   thomas: a POI needs to be able to have multiple categories and these
   categories should be URIs

   <matt> PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Category primitive is NOT required.
   Category can be identified by a URI. POIs can have more than one

   cperey: if we just specify it this way, we don't need to invite an
   expert to come talk to us... it is an implementation detail

   ahill: at some stage we need to work out the meaning

   <matt> [109]Good Relations categories

    [109] http://www.heppnetz.de/ontologies/goodrelations/v1.html#category

   thomas: there are also simple formatting issues, e.g. comma
   seperated list or multiple entries

   ahill: how about an action item of finding an example of a system
   using different category systems

   <danbri> [110]http://stores.bestbuy.com/153/

    [110] http://stores.bestbuy.com/153/

   the meaning. that is up to the systems

   <danbri> proposal: "The WG agrees that POI descriptions will be more
   useful when they include categorisation information. This could
   include classes of entity (eg. products, brands), as well as broader
   topics (eg. Medieval). Defining particular schemas in detail is
   beyond the range of the group, but we anticipate that URIs will be
   used to identify these classes and/or categories. There may be scope

   to use Linked Data (skos, dbpedia etc.) for such tasks.

   alex: does the charter say AR landscape, it says AR notes I think

   <matt> [20]Charter

     [20] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/charter/#deliverables

   <JonathanJ> examples #2 - [21]http://dev.w3.org/html5/vocabulary/

     [21] http://dev.w3.org/html5/vocabulary/

   matt: there is POI recommendation
   ... AR and web standard is a long name so I renamed it to AR
   ... I put some stuff in the text around the deliverables
   ... I really thought people would say "Here's the core" with a lot
   of properties and that we needed a place to put the stuff that we
   did not feel should be in the core

   alex: there are 2 worlds, the nokia's and navteq's, and the people
   who want to use POI in AR
   ... I think we are trying to architect things to not specifically
   make room for 3D models, images, etc
   ... they would become presentation data that can be attached to the
   core POI

   matt: via linking, not saying here is our markup language

   alex: I agree with that, but we haven't got a full list of what will
   be added

   matt: maybe we should do more core work before knowing how to
   progress on this

   alex; why don't we have a look at what pieces should go into this

   alex: such as mentioning what kind of things people would add to a
   POI for AR. Like sounds, models, html content, interactivity

   martin: things like lines, 3D area, connecting geopoints, coloring,
   transparency, tons of things

   alex: sounds a little like openstreetmap, cartogrophy
   ... some people would argue whether that is AR

   martin: for example if you are on a tower and want districts
   colored, that is AR

   alex: agree, these features can be added. but what are they called?
   ... curves, regions

   fons: sounds like SVG

   alex: in some sense yes, but it may be described a bit different. at
   a higher level, that is what people want to do, but how we don't
   know yet
   ... svg could be possible, kml has something as well
   ... and for sound, there are many different ways of doing that as
   well. mono, html5, spatial
   ... and 3D models
   ... you are going to want some interactivity with these models
   ... maybe an extension to javascript like HTML (hover, click) for
   easy authoring
   ... or go deeper with X3D and DOM

   jacques: or webgl

   alex: many things seem obvious, but I want to get them down on a

   matt: I just started collecting some use cases from this discussion


   jacques: you are speaking about content, but what about POI and
   linking POI. Do we want to have the notion of groups of POI in our

   luca: also clustering. If there are a lot together, how do we
   cluster and explode?
   ... in our AR application, we saw that if there are many things
   close together, you cannot click

   <JonathanJ> I suggest we start from what/how POI can interact other
   (POI action) -

     [22] http://layar.pbworks.com/w/page/30763878/Activity-types-for-POI-actions

   ronald: this sounds like something for the AR note as it is a

   luca: don't you think we should have a recommendation in the core

   alex: I think it is something that might need to be in the core POI
   ... for instance in KML you have folders, and some level of detail
   ... they have some visualisation paradigms
   ... if you have some on top of each other, you see one POI and it
   expands if you click on it
   ... this is very much an information visualisation technique
   ... not sure if there is anything structurally in the data
   controlling that

   ronald: that's why I see it as not part of the data model

   alex: has something to do with occlusion as well

   martin: It is more of a feature than part of the data model

   alex: I think it is good to mention it in the AR note now
   ... ronald: the clustering seems to be an implementation issue that
   should use information from categories and relations from the core
   POI spec

   jacques: what if you want to navigate from one POI to another POI.
   You can switch to google maps or openstreetmap
   ... you must have a two level navigation system

   <matt> [23]Google Earth with a cluster of POIs at same point

     [23] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/File:POI_Cluster.png

   jacques: I try to write a format very close to open streep map and
   link from core POI into the navigation level

   <matt> [24]Google Earth with a cluster of POIs at the same point,
   when clicked upon

     [24] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/File:POI_Cluster_explode.png

   alex: let's paraphrase. we need a higher level way of linking POI to
   POI to POI, and there needs to be a way to link it to a street level
   navigation system
   ... if we use gml kml, it is easier to link to openstreetmap, but if
   we write our own core POI it might be more difficult

Comparing formats, OSM, GeoRSS, etc

   jacques: we can go with something similar to this, but if we define
   a format for developers and nobody is using gml.
   ... gml is dead in some sense
   ... it is very difficult to find information in gml
   ... maybe SG

   matt: I got an email from the creator of gml. he envisioned gml as a
   schema language for creating other formats
   ... for example citygml, but also georss
   ... he was not envisioning gml being used, but let people subset it

   jacques: the schema for openstreetmap is 5 lines. that is very

   <matt> [25]GeoRSS

   <matt> [27]OSM XML Schema

     [27] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/XML_Schema

   alex: so open street map is made of nodes, point in the world

   jacques, we have nodes, ways (bunch of nodes)

   jacques: it can have semantic data, links, rfd data
   ... it is very powerful, nothing is really missing

   <matt> [28]OSM Map Features

     [28] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_features

   jacques: it is very compact and simple. that is why it is so
   ... if you have a POI format that is close to this, people will more
   easily move

   <danbri> it should be possible to ground a simple format in GML
   ideas, even if the simple format is CSV/JSON

   alex: looks like a different approach. bottom up vs top down
   ... osm looks great. 200.000 developers and succesful
   ... we don't want to ignore and push away this crowd
   ... is it possible to come up with something that satisfies this
   crowd and everybode else
   ... and everybody else is everybody in this room
   ... there are multiple ways of standardising. one of them is not
   standardise, and the other is more formal like W3C

   jacques: but it is a specified schema that is well defined

   matt: we should look at how to look at the "normal" web developer,
   not just the big data owners

   <danbri> (no jacques in irc?)

   jacques: In different AR browsers, there is content from osm. Just
   search for mtrip

   <jacques> mtrip and "le guide du routard

   <danbri> OSM is great, an amazing achievement, but schema-wise it
   pushes a lot of modeling into tags

   ahill: why can't the POI recommendation be OSM?
   ... using a schema very similar to OSM

   jacques: it would be possible
   ... but after that you have to define meta data

   ahill: so does that mean all POIs would go into the OSM database

   jacques: no, it is just user data

   <danbri> matt, from the map features page, 'OpenStreetMap does not
   have any content restrictions on tags that can be assigned to
   OSM-Elements (Nodes , Ways or Relations ). You can use any tags you
   like as long as the values are verifiable.'

   <danbri> 'However, there is a benefit in agreeing to a recommended
   set of features and corresponding tags in order to create, interpret
   and display a common basemap. This page contains a core recommended
   feature set and corresponding tags.'

   <danbri> so it's a kind of wiki approach

   <matt> I see now, thanks danbri!

   <danbri> if the schema encoded those it would be a bigger schema

   <danbri> so comparing complexity by looking at the size of the
   schema is only a partial measure

   <danbri> otherwise I'll make a <dan:Geo> </dan:Geo> schema with one
   element :)

   jacques: schema is small with a lot of semantic data

   ahill: but can I get anything out of osm using just the schema?
   ... judging/evaluating if something is a small schema you need to
   look at the semantic data
   ... what does this mean for us. why can't we use this?
   ... I am thinking that anything we create can be simple enough and
   it can be easily converted to osm
   ... but the same applies to gml, kml
   ... but it does not give me any guidance on how to structure our

   matt: as far as I can tell, all osm is WGS84. so we would need to
   add our other location constructs

   ahill: are there points that are not absolute

   jacques: no, everything is to describe points in the world. we would
   need to add it
   ... but being close to this spec would help

   ahill: is gml more verbose, because we are not relying on

   matt: having a namespace will avoid clashes, but still have

   ahill: is it possible that with osm are less verbose, but if we add
   more things it becomes not clear to read anymore?

   jacques: in a tag you can put an uri to an svg file
   ... your can reference HTML5, or complex graphical systems

   matt: how do you do that in practical. is it on a node?

   ahill: how do I render it

   matt: is it an idea to make an example POI

   jacques: I can provide that

   ahill: to me, the discussion is that jacques is a C# guy, and I am a
   Java guy
   ... things are expressible in OSM or RDF or XML. This is not the

   jacques: the question is who will be using it

   ahill: that is an important question, but I am unprepared to answer
   this question
   ... I presume that because we are in W3C, we would create a standard
   that is W3C like

   jacques: open street map likes W3C

   <matt> scribe: martinL

   ahill: I have no doubt that we can use ARML or OSM

   <matt> [33]current use cases

     [33] http://www.w3.org/2010/POI/wiki/Use_Cases

   ahill: i like to check the usecases dan proposed
   ... dan has described a very typical case. somebody wants to publish
   POI data and looks for guidance (W3C) how to do it and save wasting
   his time
   ... let's look it in light of something like OSM
   ... any examples of OSM playing with RSS (event scheduling etc.)? or
   are they just mapping streets (that's what i suspect)
   ... does the community use OSM for other tasks? social data? feeds?

   jacques: yes - traffic information, other tools, additional layers
   can be added to the model
   ... for example REST API to query POIs

   ahill: so people already creating POIs in the community (classes,
   add description, the type of information we are talking about)
   ... tools to create, query APIs exist
   ... something like SPARQL vs. OSM data?

   jacques: use can use SPARQL to query OSM data, but RESTful API is
   much simpler
   ... RESTful interface is faster

   <matt> [[LinkedGeoData is an effort to add a spatial dimension to
   the Web of Data / Semantic Web. LinkedGeoData uses the information
   collected by the OpenStreetMap project and makes it available as an
   RDF knowledge base according to the Linked Data principles. It
   interlinks this data with other knowledge bases in the Linking Open
[   Data initiative.]] -- [34]http://linkedgeodata.org/About

     [34] http://linkedgeodata.org/About

   ahill: low-level efficiency issues: questions like "Why do you use
   SPARQL with OSM?"

   jaques: with GML, it will take a lot of time to define complex

   ahill: OSM has simple schema, the query APIs are simple (no
   complexity) vs. RESTful APIs on complex structures like GML

   jacques: Before XML, there was SGML, but it was not successful -
   they wanted to move to something simpler


     [35] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_Generalized_Markup_Language

   jacques: We should use something simpler

   ahill: message received
   ... we've talked a lot about it. in the end, we're agnostic. we do
   not choose OSM over GML or vice versa
   ... we're not experts in something like timestamps etc.
   ... Safe to say GML is a toolkit of things?
   ... how do you turn GML into a language?

   <danbri> re query, my take is that we're primarily about data
   structures; different folk will query it in different ways /

   ahill: just pick parts of it?
   ... When you look at GeoRSS, there are no new fundamental types,
   you'll find GML

   matt: We can have our own XML and map to these things
   ... or JSON

   ahill: Answer to OSM question is: "Nothing" - we won't reject it,
   but it doesn't provide a way forward to the discussion

   Ronald: We should keep OSM in mind to create a mapping to it

   ahill: we won't shut out the OSM people

   <danbri> aside re SGML, ... the message that announced the Web was

   ahill: that's a concern. elevation is optional?

   jacques: yes

   ahill: if i make an OSM-based map, where do you get elevation?

   ... let's work through the existing data format

   matt: we've talked about time, categorization and name

   ahill: not all problems are solved, but we are further in the

   <Luca> thanks J but it's not true :(

   ahill: for the name primitive, we don't need to take care of things
   like encoding etc., cause it will come with a specific encoding,
   that's metadata
   ... multiple names for POIs in different languages is
   implementation-specific and will be in the matadata
   ... we need to decide if a simple name is enough

   Ronald: last december, i think we came to a same conclusion

   sorry for the "typo" :-)

   <danbri> re labels, SKOS has some terminology for labelling:
   [38]http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-primer/#seclabel and
   [39]http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-primer/#seclabelsoutsideSKOS ... you
   can give labels in various languages, and a 'preferred label'

     [38] http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-primer/#seclabel
     [39] http://www.w3.org/TR/skos-primer/#seclabelsoutsideSKOS

   ahill: Preferred Labels is a way of prioritizing labels
   ... this adds to the discussion. a single name is not enough
   ... charset is a different topic

   <matt> PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Character set is an implementation
   detail, will likely be handled at the XML processing level

   Ronald: that's implementation

   <JonathanJ> similar example : skos:prefLabel "ë물="@ko;

   ahill: name is a textual label for a POI

   <matt> RESOLUTION: Character set issues are an implementation detail
   that will be handled at the processing level (e.g. by XML processor)

   ahill: done

   <JonathanJ> we need to consider I18N issues -

     [40] http://www.w3.org/International/techniques/developing-specs

   ahill: in XML, there is no ordering, we need to define default

   JonathanJ: we need to find best practices, not read the entire

   Ronald: reading through the best practices, maybe the Resolution
   should not be 5-4-3-2-1-done ...

   matt: created a placeholder for internationalization issues

   <danbri> (the spec(s) will also need review from the Accessibility

   ahill: suming up: we need labels, but do we want a preferred label
   vs. alt label

   Ronald: did we make a conclusion that label is better than name?
   ... i like label better, but personal preference

   Luca: What is the difference?

   <JonathanJ> right danbri. Normally, W3C specs need review from
   horizontal WGs - I18n, Accessibility community

   Ronald: name has more meaning
   ... i can imagine a lot of POIs where name does not make sense, but
   label does

   Luca: i'm in favor of the labels

   ahill: we want to change name to label

   Luca: ... we could have both

   Ronald: that creates confusion

   Luca: When using forsquare, there are tons of names that are
   different, cause everyone wants to create his own place.
   ... something that is more concrete, that connects the labels to the
   official name

   ahill: that raises the question of authority
   ... question: should the data format propose to solve that?
   ... a boolean saying "This is the important one"?
   ... I would say no
   ... "e.g., Who owns the White House?
   ... there's nothing in HTTP or HTML or so that handles that question

   Ronald: agree

   ahill: so we use label. what about language?
   ... should metadata describe different labels for different

   <ahill> matt is typing

   <matt> <poi xml:lang="en-US"><label>in en-us</><label
   xml:lang="es">en espagnol</></>

   martinL: I like that

   <matt> Ronald: Matt doesn't know Spanish.

   ahill: do we wanna capture this in a document, and then move on

   <JonathanJ> we might be to need like as ICANN for POI ownership

   <danbri> "When using forsquare, there are tons of names that are
   different, cause everyone wants to create his own place." => this
   suggests we should capture a de-duplication use case: mechanisms to
   tell when two POI descriptions are about the same real-world entity
   (eg. via restaurant's phone number or url)

   <Luca> <label xml:lang="it">In Italiano</label>

   ahill: considering the two things coming into the IRC
   ... we don't want to consider ownership

   matt: i think we don't want to cover registration

POI Authority, identification and de-duplication

   <matt> matt: We should facilitate being decentralized as much as
   possible. Using URIs to accomplish this is the Web accepted way
   (setting aside the centralization that occurs due to ICANN, etc).

   Luca: For referencing the same name, we could probably use the

   martinL: That's tricky

   Luca: Right, it could reference the big building, or outtakes from
   the building

   ahill: We do need ways that two things refer to the same place
   ... do I want to refer from my POI to another POI ("that's the
   official building")?

   fons: Consider databases where you have lots of addresses - we need
   a way to resolve duplicates

   <matt> Scribe: Luca

   matt: if your are going in a place and you create a POI: how do you
   avoid duplicate


   <JonathanJ> there is two types of approach : supervised (Wikipedia
   style), unsupervised (foursquare style)

   alex: there is 2 worlds: Information and something phisical
   ... GUID for the physical world?

   RONALD: in reality we expect to have a multiple information that
   reflect the same element (POI)

   <matt> matt: I think all we can do is pop up a layer, and assuming
   there is a URI for a POI, and we are in a well designed Web
   environment, that if two POI's URIs resolve to the same URI, that
   they are the same POI. I think that's the only claim we can make.

   Alex: is it possible that we get down to specifying a location we
   can refer to identity (?????) a building?
   ... concern: there can be multiple db that have data, and there
   would be inconsistency. How can we resolve it?

   <JonathanJ> How Facebook Can Solve The Duplicate Venue Problem -

     [41] http://ericleist.com/2010/08/18/how-facebook-can-sole-the-duplicate-venue-problem/

   sorry i miss Martin and Ronald talk about the authority


   <matt> Alex: We can provide guidance on this. There will be
   authorities such as Ordnance Survey.

   <martinL> i was saying the same problem we were talking about is
   approached through semantic concepts and the Linked Data Cloud


   Alex: if 2 people drop 2 pois, similar, close, how our data format
   is going to solve the resolution on the duplication?

   <danbri> the principle of having a location be able to 'claim
   itself' is pretty cool, and goes beyond Facebook. You could have the
   org's homepage declare an OpenID, and then if someone logs into your
   site (eg. Layar developer site) using that OpenID, you know it's the
   person controlling the org's site.

   ronald: we need to address this problem (duplication) when we will
   looking at the relationship

   <matt> matt: I think we help ease some of these issues by specifying
   a lot of 0 or more properties, e.g. labels: we can have the
   "California Pizza Kitchen" AND the "CPK" in one POI. We can have
   more than one location, it could be a point, or a model, or both.
   Without this ability to have multiples we will certainly cause lots
   and lots of duplication.

   <danbri> related and somehow harder, is when two POI descriptions
   are at slightly different levels of abstraction; Tushinski as
   historical building vs Tushinski as film venue. Not clear whether to
   merge or not. The WG's approach to categories has some impact there.

   <matt> scribe: Matt

   <Luca> Alex: Jack ask was : why don't we use OSM looking a the
   extreme success in the developer communinty?

   Alex: We spent some time looking at various formats, OSM, RFD, etc.
   In the end we're going to be language neutral.

   <Luca> Alex: and the groups said or thought: why not

   <Luca> thanks matt

   <Luca> and sorry for the readers

   <Luca> :)

   <Luca> about my minutes

   Alex: For instance, we looked at LinkedGeoData.org, which takes OSM
   data, converts it to RDF and then allows SPARQL queries over it. It
   confirmed that people can make POIs in various ways, but didn't
   resolve the problem.

   jacques: OSM is very easy for Web developers to use. Researchers can
   move to RDF format.
   ... We've moved back to OSM format as it's very efficient.
   ... A format similar to OSM same schema perhaps would be nice, and
   you can build applications with navigation and with POIs that are
   close to navigation systems.
   ... I think it would be easy to do this in something close to OSM
   ... It's very easy to use and very usable by Web developers.

   Alex: He doesn't want the POI spec to be so different that it can't
   be linked to OSM data.
   ... How do you feel today vs how you felt in Seoul?
   ... We also talked about not wanting to inline things like HTML

   jacques: If we had something like KML for presentation above OSM for
   location data, that would be ideal.

Next F2F

   Alex: I cannot go to a June meeting in Taiwan

   martinL: I'll be at OGC meeting in Taiwan.
   ... But I'll go wherever we go.

   <JonathanJ> If June meeting is not WG meeting, I cannot go to there

   matt: My preference if we were to colocate a meeting with OGC, that
   it be one where we have relevance, e.g. the Denver OGC meeting where
   the 3DIM people will be meeting.

   Alex: If we had the Geolocation WG, the DAP WG, Khronos and us, what
   are we going to come away with that? It'd be fun, but what do we get
   from them wrt what we're doing?
   ... I'm not sure if that recipe is really what we need.
   ... If we met with OSM people (not sure who they are), and Carsen
   for CityGML, I think that's something fruitful.

   <JonathanJ> one of other option is meeting with OMA mobileAR

   [[Looking at OGC agenda]]

   Alex: Who is meeting at this meeting?

   <JonathanJ> next OMA meeting will held in Budapest, Hungary (June 27
   ~ June 30)

   Alex: We need a way to make the players feel they are represented.
   Having members from other orgs be there, is positive.
   ... I don't have serious expectations that they will come to the
   table with lots of content to contribute.
   ... Let's not let our priorities get effected by things others want
   to inject. We can liaise with them.

   Luca: We might find overlaps with other specs. OMA doesn't seem to
   have a specification themselves, they'll use our stuff to model
   their specification.
   ... I think it's best for us to meet with those who have skills we
   don't have right now.
   ... OGC may have the people we need. We only have three f2f meetings
   per year, we have to focus on what is good for us.
   ... Then there is the issue of them having a full agenda, how can we
   meet with the people if they're busy with other things.

   matt: I think we should look at skills and things that we are
   lacking now, where we can get insight, then maybe figure out
   specific people/organizations to work with?
   ... e.g. geo, I think has a long history, lots of details.

   martinL: I think we should be looking for computer vision folks too.

   <JonathanJ> WG Meeting in Korea is available whenever we want :)

   Ronald: Agreed.

   Alex: Having danbri here for example was very valuable as we had
   someone speaking with authority on the Web. Having Thomas here was
   also good in that he's implementing this stuff.

   Ronald: He's one of our personas for our use cases.

   <JonathanJ> +1

   Alex: I think we need the geo detail people too.
   ... We need something beyond just the data set folks, offset by
   other geo standards folks, e.g. OGC and/or OSM.

   <scribe> ACTION: matt to work with OGC on participating in WG
   [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-48 - Work with OGC on participating in WG
   [on Matt Womer - due 2011-04-07].

   Alex: If the people we need are not in Taiwan, we shouldn't cohost
   ... If there isn't an agenda item for us to meet with them, I don't
   want to go. If it's just hallway conversations that's not good.
   ... I would favor a US meeting in the fall, either OGC or TPAC, or
   our own.

   Matt: We could also try to work around ISMAR 2011.

   -> [52]http://www.ismar11.org/ ISMAR 2011

     [52] http://www.ismar11.org/

   Matt: I'd rather not attend ISMAR itself, but if it helps, I'd
   attend a WG meeting around it.

   Alex: I'd say I'm still at "I'd go to something in the US"

   Matt: Who will be at TPAC? Layar?

   Ronald: Maybe, could be Dirk, or Jens or not at all.

   JonathanJ: I'll be there.

   Luca: If we meet, I can go. DAP is meeting as well, Marco is going
   to that.

   Fons: ?? may go??

   Matt: I'll be there for my other WGs at the very least.
   ... TPAC would probably give us more interfacing with the AR folks.
   OGC would give us more Geo expertise. We could also invite OGC to

   <JonathanJ> I think TPAC meeting must be valuable for us

   Alex: OGC meeting seems more valuable to where we are.

   matt: TPAC will also let us meet more Web people too, like danbri.

   <JonathanJ> ISUVR 2011 - [53]http://www.isuvr.org/

   Alex: I'll be on an island south of Korea for ISUVR at beginning of
   ... Last few days in June or 1 July works for me in Korea

   <JonathanJ> If we want it, I can co-host in Jeju, June 28(Tue) ~
   June 30 (or June 27(Mon) ~ June 29)

   Matt: My guidance would be to have us attend TPAC. It's really very
   ... I'll put a poll together for F2F meetings.

   Alex: Should we put Taiwan in the poll?

Core Draft: identifying POIs, IDs, URIs, etc

   Alex: I declare that I have a POI within Silicon Valley, and sv is
   represented by a URI.

   martinL: If I want to put a POI in somewhere, I need a reference to
   it, it's like a hyperlink.
   ... So you're saying how can we make your ID for a POI unique in the
   ... Let's say you create a POI called Silicon Valley, and I want to
   create a POI for Palo Alto, should we allow for linkage?

   -> [55]http://www.w3.org/2011/03/16-poiwg-minutes.html URI

     [55] http://www.w3.org/2011/03/16-poiwg-minutes.html

   Alex: If there's a POI that represents Silicon Valley, and there's
   some consensus that it's SV someone with some authority is going to
   have a URI for it.

   martinL: If we do what we're saying, you won't have a URI for a POI.

   matt: So, we could be talking about putting the URI on the envelop,
   or in the envelop, or combining the URI to fetch it with the
   fragment syntax to reference things within the POI.

   Alex: Not following the envelope thing.

   matt: On the Web, a web page doesn't really know it's URI. That's on
   the 'outside' of the envelope, it's how you fetched it via HTTP. And
   you can reference and create fragments though, fetch via "#" syntax
   and use id= or name= within HTML.

   Alex: We've had conversation yesterday about how to fetch just a
   particular piece without the whole thing, which is a bit weird, as
   the server never sees the # in most cases.

   matt: On the visible Web, the way it works is the hash portion of
   the URL never gets to the server. Once the whole HTML page comes
   back, the client looks for an id/name that matches the hash portion
   and jumps there.

   jacques: Looking at how it works with OSM...

   -> [56]http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations OSM Relations

     [56] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations

   matt: We're really back to the ID discussion.

   Alex: We've had discussions about this, experts, etc that said use

   matt: How does OSM handle mashing up things? Can I make my stuff
   reference an OSM data portion, or vice versa?

   jacques: When you talk about this, you're not talking about OSM --
   OSM is the database. You're talking about an OSM style schema to
   describe POI.
   ... We're speaking of a channel, that has something like OSM data.
   Now in that you want to refer to my personal channel, there's
   ... Linking within a channel is obvious, between channels, I don't
   know. If there's a URI for your channel, you could expand the URI,
   it should be possible, but you'd have to write it.

   matt: channel=layer?

   jacques: yes.

   cperey: Does this happen in Wikitude?

   martinL: We haven't rolled it out yet.
   ... There's a URI and an ID that references the world and then ??.
   You can call it from a web page or whatever.

   cperey: So you can call one world from another?

   martinL: Yes.
   ... We do some of this through wikitude based URIs.

   Alex: Say someone made a Christmas tree layer. Can I include a
   reference to that in my layer?

   jacques: With a REST API, it shouldn't be difficult.

   Alex: It's one thing to click on a link and get a channel, but
   there's another to be able to link to a subset of a channel.

   martinL: There's "I am linking to your data set" (e.g. your whole
   web page, or a new set of POIs). Then there's linking to a
   particular POI.

   Alex: If I had made a POI in my world of a Christmas tree and
   Jacques wants to include that POI, does he copy that data or link to

   martinL: Links to the data set with the fragment pointing to the
   particular POI.

   Alex: We're saying basically support linked data. Not terribly

   matt: We say that now...

   cperey: Say, I want to put an ornament on that tree, but I don't
   have one, but Jacques does.

   martinL: It's not all that dissimilar from iframes on the visual
   ... Instead of copying, I link through an iframe.

   Alex: It's not in the DOM for the hosting page, it's really quite

   martinL: I don't think we should get into the recursion or inclusion
   in an AR DOM or anything right now.

   Alex: Let's codify this Christmas tree example.

   cperey: I think it's much more likely you want it in an urban
   planning setting. e.g. a catalog of virtual objects being put on the
   walls or something like that.

   Alex: Something dangling moving, hanging off of things... that's a
   requirement people will want.

   matt: I think this is back to the relationships part rather than the
   ID part.

   RESOLUTION: Core POI must be able to refer to a POI through an HTTP
   URI (recommended) or other global identifier outside of the POI

   martinL: We still need to figure out what the POI ID is.

   Alex: I think we want to figure this out. People want to refer from
   the outside of the POI, e.g. "here's an HTTP URI that points to a
   POI". That is different than a bunch of POIs in one place, how do I
   refer to just one of them.
   ... We've said that that fragment part is how we will identify it.

   PROPOSED RESOLUTION: The ID specified within a POI document will be
   addressable via the fragment notation in a URI.

   matt: Yesterday I said "are there multiple POIs in a POI document?"
   and the response was kind of "huh?"

   Alex: Today we say "yes", there can be.

   cperey: Using the mall example, there could be a single document
   with all of the stores within it.

   martinL: Right, otherwise you have to start with the whole universe.

   cperey: There can also be synonyms and reassignments of the URIs,

   RESOLUTION: The ID specified within a POI document will be
   addressable via the fragment notation in a URI.

   Alex: It was simple enough when we had a document and a fragment
   within it. Now we're talking about documents within documents --

   martinL: It's not, it's a document that references other POIs

   Alex: If POI A contains POI B, how does that work? How many
   different documents do I have?

   martinL: Essentially you have a link. "contains" is a link. There's
   no nesting.

   Alex: Flatly represented.

   [[note, this topic change should be moved to where we have the topic
   of relationships]]

   <scribe> ACTION: cperey to determine which OGC WGs are meeting at
   OGC TC in June [recorded in

   <trackbot> Created ACTION-50 - Determine which OGC WGs are meeting
   at OGC TC in June [on Christine Perey - due 2011-04-07].

   matt: I was thinking the three options were: TaichungTaiwan, Boston
   MA, Boulder CO for the poll.

   cperey: Adjust the date to do it by Monday, have it close the next
   monday. Talk on TC in between.

Core Draft: Relationships

   jacques: A panoramic may have POIs within them, not separate POI
   ... Don't want them nested.

   Ronald: A POI is always a separate relationship, and not always just
   accessible within a POI group.

   Fons: There's a difference between having the relationship expressed
   in the datastructure itself.

   Alex: POIs are POIs, data structures that are grouping them together
   are what? POIs?

   Ronald: Would this building be a POI, or would it be a group of
   company POIs?

   Alex: I find it hard to find a situation where something isn't a
   ... We think of a POI as something different to a grouping node.
   ... For the sake of argument if the grouping mechanism wasn't called
   a POI that might be more obvious

   jacques: I'd prefer to keep a POI close to a point.

   Alex: What about a building? It's a volume, not a point.

   jacques: It's a building with a POI inside.

   Alex: From an OSM point of view, there are points, and a point of
   interest is just a point.
   ... There are other datastructures that group them into shapes
   through relations.
   ... I disagree with that conception of it.

   Ronald: I think it would be hard to model the other things we want
   to bring via AR. e.g. use cases that aren't only geo.

   jacques: If we can stay close to that it would be good, otherwise
   there's POI within POI, etc.

   matt: Just to be clear, we're not talking about the datastructure
   when we say "POI within POI", e.g.: <poi id="a"><poi id="b"><poi
   id="c"></poi></poi></poi>" -- we're not saying that.

   Ronald: The adjacent to relationship, the routing info. I think
   there's debate about the OSM way of routes of points, vs Karl's
   statement of it is a relationship between POIs.

   Alex: There's another thing that we've discussed, taking it out of
   the POI and make another data structure for expressing relations.

   jacques: In OSM the relations are recursive too.
   ... To OSM a point is a point.
   ... To you a point is more vague.

   Ronald: I get the feeling that points at OSM are closer to our
   lat/lng primitve.

   jacques: I would prefer that the pois be between the relationship.

   Alex: Declaring that two POIs are the same is a POI?

   Ronald: No. There may be a relationship between the old restaurant
   and the new at the same location and you might want to capture that

   cperey: You could do that with temporal information.

   jacques: Relations and relationships are different things.
   ... In Geo they call a grouping of ways/nodes/relations relations.
   ... While what you're speaking of is a relationship.

   Ronald: Some of us are talking about relations on a geo level, and
   others are talking about relations between POIs.
   ... I think the relation primitive of a POI has nothing to do with
   the geo relations.
   ... A POI in it's location primitive has a relation defining the geo
   boundaries. e.g. a polygon showing an extensible building. In OSM
   you would reuse that relationship from the geo perspective, but they
   are two different concepts.

   cperey: We also talked about relationships like provenance,
   for-sale, etc.

   Alex: I am not sure we agreed that that was within scope of our
   relation tag vs the metadata.
   ... KML has atompub bits to it that allow you to ascribe provenance,
   and there are other standards in use too.
   ... In some sense we want to restrict the usage to what really
   matters for POI, not to cover all cases.

   Ronald: This is also somewhere we meet the semantic web too.

   <relation type="[58]http://...." id1="#a" id2="#b"/>

     [58] http://.../

   Alex: The conversation thus far: rather than having a few types that
   we prescribe, we could be flexible. Then we talked about POIs within
   POIs. We do want to accommodate the social provenance too. We do
   want to capture some relations like "California is contained within
   the US".

   martinL: A city tour may contain POIs for it, but is the tour itself
   a POI?

   Alex: I would say the tour itself is also a POI.

   cperey: But you could also call that a way or a route.

   jacques: I'd prefer that.

   Alex: Do you want to restrict what we can attach to it?

   Ronald: If this tour is a POI in our definition, then the POI will
   have a location primitive. If it can contain an osm way, we can do
   that, or have relationships to the individual points on the tour.
   ... I really see OSM as a way to represent the location primitive.

   jacques: No, semantic data is attached to it.
   ... If you have a recursive definition of a POI it is much more

   Ronald: Is the POI the leading factor or the location.

   matt: I say it is the POI -- we can have POIs whose location is not
   geo based.

   Ronald: That is the key difficulty.
   ... If everything is geo the OSM approach is fine. Is there a way to
   extend the OSM to other location primitives that we want to support?

   Alex: Some of the examples we had at the last f2f-- it is weird that
   everything I am saying is being typed -- ha-- oo- a--
   ... At the last f2f we had some examples of a number of states or a
   bunch of businesses and there was a desire to have another grouping
   element -- a POI whose extent is implied by them.
   ... We could have a city which is prescribed by the things within

   jacques: We would have to have a complex definition of a location.

   Alex: We acknowledge that. We may use something like OSM to describe
   them, or something like GML for complex regions/paths/etc.
   ... Ronald is saying that those are the extents, the volume, the
   structure of POis -- but those are a conceptual term. The POI are
   the semantic data being added to points of space, and you may even
   group a number of POIs and say "this is a POI".
   ... I think your concern is that you grouped not POIs, but geometric
   objects and that those are a POI.
   ... I think what Jacques wants us to do is establish relationships
   between extents from a POI, not a POI to a POI.
   ... We're not working on a just geometric level.

   [[Alex draws on board]]


     [59] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relations/Multipolygon


     [60] http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:boundary

   Alex: These all look like very geo oriented relationships.

   Ronald: It's not metadata about it, just what it is.

   Alex: an administrative boundary is as close as we've gotten to the
   semantics. It's just geographical.
   ... OSM seems to be geometry on a sphere. It doesn't have altitude
   ... We see that but want to do something more powerful moving
   towards, well, not exactly concepts, but things that may defy those
   boundaries of lines on a sphere.

   Ronald: We also have a use case of a dynamic POI, a GPS on a bus for

   Alex: Bus going down the road has three labels on it "John" "Sally"
   and "Someone else" -- they're creating a POI, some call it an
   annotation, some call it a thought bubble, but they are all taking
   advantage of the fact that there is a location of "the bus".
   ... So there is another one of "the bus" itself. Maybe another pops
   up of "BGTV 26", which is in the bus, manufactured by Mitsibushi,
   etc. They're a single point.

   jacques: I'm going bottom up, you're going top down.

   Ronald: Can one integrate within the other?

   jacques: It's a very ambitious format. I think you will run into
   trouble at some point.

   Alex: Aren't these just triples? a verb b

   Ronald: We may introduce this POI concept, besides the point and the
   way concepts and have links made via linked data.

   Alex: We have an issue here. Brainstorming:
   ... This group has been operating for some time with the model on
   the board -- POIs can have relationships between POIs -- maybe these
   relationships are not geometric. The question is what problems does
   this cause?
   ... One issue raised: is there a recursion here? What issues does
   that cause?

   jacques: Recursion is a real problem here, it could prevent a real

   Ronald: Isn't this problem true of the semantic web too?

   Alex: Yes, inference engines have these problems.
   ... So we need to resolve if this is going to create a problem for
   us. One concrete way to see this is through examples.
   ... We cannot walk away and meet again without examples, where we've
   tried to implement these things. Let's go try it.
   ... The value of trying is to get more minds to look at this

   Ronald: danbri started a repository for examples.

   Alex: That is where they should go.
   ... If we send around emails and it's not one click away for people,
   then that's a potential problem.

   matt: Resolution 6:

   RESOLUTION: Matt to start acting as informal editor. WG will bring
   together issues weekly for entering into wiki.

   matt: Resolution 7:

   RESOLUTION: POI descriptions will be more useful when they include
   categorisation information. This could include classes of entity
   (eg. products, brands), as well as broader topics (eg. Medieval).
   Defining particular schemas in detail is beyond the range of the
   group, but we anticipate that URIs will be used to identify these
   classes and/or categories. There may be scope for publishing a small
   high-level taxonomy that integrates existing deployed practice, as
