   ChrisLittle: Simon already started ... (sorry, I missed that)

   brinkwoman: The Open Data Institute could also be a good

   MichaelGordon: Anyone has connections to ODI?

   <AndreaPerego> Not me.

   <AndreaPerego> I guess we are talking about [6]http://

      [6] http://openag.io/

   MichaelGordon: Let's put this on the list after the call and
   see if anyone in the wider group has connections

   josephabhayaratna: Government in general (data publication)

   MichaelGordon: There are already such activities in the UK

   <brinkwoman> I meant [8]https://theodi.org

      [8] https://theodi.org/

   josephabhayaratna: Is the linked data group in the UK still

   <AndreaPerego> Thanks, Linda!

   MichaelGordon: Yes, currently focussed on registers

   josephabhayaratna: Something similar going on in Australia

   <brinkwoman> There's also the dutch linked data group

   MichaelGordon: One of the heads of ODI has been at OS recently

   ClemensPortele: Should we also include links to publicly
   available material promoting the SDWBP on the GitHub page?

   MichaelGordon: Yes, good idea

   MichaelGordon: Lets discuss the messaging, what messages do we
   want to emphasize

   ChrisLittle: Should we think by domains? A big community is the
   space community, working in their silo.

   <josephabhayaratna> +1 for giving that a go

   MichaelGordon: Do we think structuring by domain is a good

   <MichaelGordon> +1

   MichaelGordon: Please add domains (and your name) on the github

   AndreaPerego: one of the topics is interoperability of spatial
   and statistical data
   … address specific bits together with the statistical

   <AndreaPerego> This especially applies to UNGGIM.

   MichaelGordon: So, we got a few actions to go through. That
   helps with the immediate milestones.
   … Any thoughts on milestones for the next three months or so?

   <AndreaPerego> Need to think about it...

   brinkwoman: An idea - could a compliance validator be created?

   <AndreaPerego> +1 to brinkwoman

   MichaelGordon: generally in favour, not really clear how it
   might work, but it clearly would be helpful
   … add it to the github page and see what could be done

   ClemensPortele: I will mostly focus on the WFS 3.0 work over
   the next three months

   MichaelGordon: Maybe add some more notes on this on the github

   ClemensPortele: Will do

   MichaelGordon: Between now and the next call, let's flesh out
   the organisations, domains, messaging, etc.
   … Plan from month to month. Look into compliance testing.

   <brinkwoman> +1

   MichaelGordon: Would this be good progress for the next 3

   <ClemensPortele> +1 (yes, good at this stage)

   brinkwoman: W3C should also be on the list of organisations -
   we are not yet that visible in W3C

   MichaelGordon: Absolutely! I will have a word with Francois.

   MichaelGordon: Anything else for today?

   brinkwoman: Jeremy and I will get in touch with MichaelGordon
   to discuss agenda at the F2F
