During the SDW-IG teleconference on 16-Jan (minutes: www.w3.org/2019/01/16-sdw-minutes.html) we said:

> OWL Space proposal
> brinkwoman: I was talking with Jo yesterday about that. Sometimes, people referred to the idea as spatial ontology. Jo joined me as co-chair of the OGC GeoSemantic Working Group.
> <jtandy> (Related to the previous item - we’ll all try to review the API Guidelines by the beginning of Feb - we’ll coordinate the input via the SDW group discussion)
> brinkwoman: We wanted to move the topic to the Geosemantic Working Group. A Domain Working Group from an OGC perspective, which is open to non OGC people.
> jtandy: That sounds fine with me. It would also give some focus to the Geosemantic Working Group.
> josephabhayaratna: Having a working group plan to work on it seems a good thing.
> <josephabhayaratna> +1
> <jtandy> +1
> <billroberts> +1
> <RobSmith_> +1
> billroberts: Sounds like a good idea. We discussed in the best practices some of the things missing from GeoSparql. I would concentrate on the simple bits as far as practical.
> … My general feeling about using ontologies is that most people don't care about the fancy bits. If we can standardize the core things, then that's good.
> josephabhayaratna: Just to follow up. Driving it from work that is already happening. Trying to keep it focused and relevant.
> … Having a look at problems that people really have. We want to bring people that are struggling with concrete problems.
> <billroberts> sounds like the ideal approach to me, Jo - thanks
> jtandy: Linda or Jo, if you can take an action to update the issue and point people at the right OGC group, that would be good
> josephabhayaratna: Happy to take that action.
> brinkwoman: Should we create a proper project for it?
> jtandy: Yes, move it to a concrete project
> 

So - it looks like we have some concrete proposals, with endorsement from the IG.

Actions / decisions:

1. Pursue this work within the OGC Geosemantics DWG - it's a DWG, so it's open to non-OGC members
2. Create a new Project for this activity in the SDW repo  

@jabhay - would you be the best person to own this push it forward?
