See you all tomorrow! (else please advise any regrets).

(1) [-] Publish flood inundation forecast data (the results of the urban flood prediction model) as a coverage dataset
(2) [Clemens] Publish information about administrative areas within the municipality
(3) [Linda] Publish flood inundation forecast data as vector dataset and identify the administrative areas (?) that each inundation area is predicted to impact
(4) [Andrea] Publish details of fixed assets (e.g. dikes & dams, buildings, roads, critical infrastructure etc.) and topographical features (e.g. water bodies)
(5) [Bill] Publish census data which contains population statistics for each administrative area [and cross reference with inundated areas to determine numbers of impacted citizens]
(6) [Ed] Publish the evacuation plan [as HTML with embedded markup & for use by downstream Web developers]
(7) [Josh] Publish real-time data-stream of water-level observations
(8) [Josh] Publish 'volunteer geographic information' using social media ... requires modification to reflect discussion from 'virtual meeting' (minutes)
(9) [-] Publish Synthetic Aperture Radar data as a coverage dataset
- Completing the narrative
(i) reference source implementations "in the wild"
(ii) convert the implementation pattern to discuss the relevant aspect of the flooding scenario;
(iii) create a full worked example; publish to GitHub?
(iv) grab code snippets for the Best Practice document
