Hello,

This thread is for discussing the need to describe additional requirements
for the SSN deliverable in the UC&R document, based on the use cases that
underpinned the original SSN specification. To investigate this topic,
ACTION-111 <https://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/track/actions/111> was started.

Kerry has made an analysis of the original use cases. A summary of that
analysis can be read here
<https://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/wiki/Working_Use_Cases#Summary_wrt_UCRs_for_SSN>.
Two new requirements are suggested (copying from the wiki):

   1. Review the extent to which domain-specific or open-ended elements of
   SSN should be extended, possibly by reference to external ontologies
   (skos-like vocabularies) as exemplars, or by small additional components.
   2. Model tasking, programming and actuation of sensing devices.

If we (particularly the members active in the SSN subgroup) think these are
valid requirements, then they need to be incorporated in the UC&R document
somehow, which means that use cases from which they derive should be there
(such a use case could be copied from the original SSN use case, or it
could already exist in the UC&R document), and the requirements should be
phrased as requirements (e.g. "It should be possible to....").

Please post your thoughts and suggestions! This subject will probably be
discussed in the next SSN teleconference, it would be good to have
implementable proposals by that time.

Greetings,
Frans
