Hi all,

As discussed on the call last week.
ACTION-85 is about best practices on linking WxS with linked data, I 
created a use case to explain why this is important.

Use Case.

Emergency response services use SDI's to help manage large scale 
incidents. During those incidents they will use a wide variety of Spatial 
data created and currated by 3rd parties. Although the data provided by 
these 3rd parties is available through standard WxS services, these 
services lack the semantics of the thematic data. Currently there is no 
way for a WxS service to expose the semantics of the features it provides 
in a web of data way.
If WxS services could be extended to provide the references to the 
semantic meaning of the features, the usabilty of these 3rd party services 
will greatly increase.
By exposing the feature data as web data it should in the same time 
increase the discoverabilty of this data.

Requirement:

Link traditional WxS features to their web data counterparts


Met Vriendelijke Groet / With Kind Regards
Bart van Leeuwen
