Hi all,

This is to remind you that next week is April focus week!

To get us started:
The retrospective for March focus week is here: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sdwig/2019Mar/0026.html
And the review: https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-sdwig/2019Mar/0007.html

Now, just to remind you all, the SDWIG is chartered until the end of this year, so we have 9 months left.

We have two face to face meetings coming up this year:
- At the OGC Technical Committee meeting in Leuven, Belgium in the week of 24-28 June.
- At the W3C Technical Plenary / Advisory Committee Meetings in Fukuoka, Japan in the week of 16-20 September.

We have *a lot* of mostly things going on at the moment.

Little things:
- Corrections for documents we published before, such as OWL Time, EO-QB, SSN.
- Getting OWL Space discussion started within OGC - Jo and I are on that and will get this started in OGC GeoSemantics DWG at the June OGC meeting.
- Figuring out if/how SDWIG can help coordinate OGC engagement with Web of Things folks

Some things that seem to be progressing, such as WebVMT and MapML.
CoverageJSON seems like it will probably be moving forward within OGC.

And a few bigger work items, which seem to have stalled:
If any of these things need help by the chairs, let us know!!
- Spatial Data on the Web best practices: publishing implementation reports.
  Also, issue #1118 relates to a fix in an SDW-BP example. Fix has been done, but we need to figure out the OGC process for publishing an update - seems to require a membership vote. I'm looking into it.
- Statistical data on the web best practices
- Moving objects, SSN primer (both never started)
- SSN ontology amendments
- Geospatial Web Roadmap (needs some more work, I have been struggling to find the time to do this myself)
- CoverageJSON - work may be done within OGC
- CityJSON - Standardisation efforts paused.

A while ago, Jeremy, François and I discussed our plans / goals for this year.
- Get Rob Smith chartered  to standardize WebVMT / help him along as far as needed.
- MapML - support the approach using web components like the TAG (technical architecture group of W3C) advised. Help gain support for MapML within the mapping community and data providers.
- Get SDW-Best Practice implementation report published as a group note first, then in some industry magazine.
- Get the Statistical data on the web best practice as a work item in the OGC stats DWG, where the community will be.
- Geospatial Data Roadmap: finish it this year.
- SSN extensions: publish as a note asap.
- Moving objects: parking lot - close the project
- SSN primer: same
- Time ontology: publish updated corrigendum version.
- SSN ontology amendment: facilitate discussion on the proposed changes, but the IG cannot actually update SSN as it is a standard.
- New project proposals: get OWL Space work going within OGC. The other proposals have not gained momentum so we will not move forward with those.

Feedback on this is welcome.

That's it for now... a good weekend to you all and find some time to work on SDW stuff next week! It will be nice to see you all online.

Linda & Jeremy
