No question. It is not enough as its scope only intersects with the scope of the WG, but I suggest that we should try to align or if possible re-use terminology from the ISO list where it is relevant, and thus avoid unnecessary mis-matches with the professional GIS community.

It would be useful, however, I have concerns (from glancing at it) that the content of this glossary is mostly oriented towards the geospatial community. We might still need to explain some of the terms in this glossary for non-spatial-experts. And a lot of the terms would never come up in our best practice or other deliverables.

... because they don't have the skills, or resources. They focus more on the content than delivery. But the content does reflect the outcome of a pretty rigorous process.

I have a student looking at it, as of yesterday, but not sure how fast that will move.

Phil,
Why would TC211 not do it themselves?  Why us?
Although I cannot see it being very difficult.

+ Linda

Simon,

Geonovum's Paul Janssen approached me this evening to talk about this very topic. I ended up saying that *if* this WG so desired, we could go through some cycles of liaison with TC211 to make sure everyone was happy and, if so, publish their glossary as a SKOS concept scheme in w3.org space (full credit, their doc is normative, all mistakes are ours yada yada). (All good concept schemes come with human readable HTML versions of course).

WDYT?

Phil.
