Linda,
Responding to

-          Now that I’ve looked at the whole list I’m missing a requirement about visualising spatial data on the web. Something like “It should be possible to publish cartographic stylesheets (in e.g. CartoCSS, SLD/SE) alongside web-enabled spatial data.” However, none of the use cases we’ve assembled mention this! I find it curious, does anyone think we need this?
This generic topic has been avoided because our charter says as follows. Although this requirement is  getting very close to that excluded area, it may be still valid – what do you think?

Out of Scope
The Spatial Data on the Web Working Group must be mindful of the needs of front end Web developers, however, it will not develop any geospatial or map rendering technologies. In other words, this WG is focused specifically on the intersection of the issues facing OGC and W3C members.

Hi all,

I went through the Requirements section of the UCR doc this morning and have some comments. Here they are:


-          5.36: I do not see the spatial aspect of this requirement.
Have in mind that the group is not only about "spatial" aspects, but about "spatial data on the Web" aspects. This is the reason to find requirements on provenance, quality metadata, reference data chunks or reference external vocabularies, which may be not directly related to "spatial" issues. If the group decides to remove this kind of requirements, fine.


-          5.42: I thought the requirement was not only for metadata for datasets/sources, but also for metadata for individual data objects. E.g UC 4.39 seems to need this (crowdsourced spatial data), also UC 4.30.

True, I changed the first sentence of the requirement to "There should be standards that allow describing the spatial characteristics of data (data objects, data sets or data services), like:"



-          5.49: typo: s/Referene/Reference

Fixed

-          5.55: Title is “Use in computational models” but text below doesn’t fit this, “It must be possible to represent uncertainty in observations.” (probably copied from 5.54)
Fixed

Good! Could you please raise an issue to be discussed in future telecons? A related use case would also be valuable.

Linda
