Dear SDWIG-ers,

As you know, the Web of Things interest group / working group are asking for help from geospatial experts. We had a joint call in December (at the OGC meeting) and a follow up call in January to discuss AR use cases, organized by Christine Perey.

What they are seeking is:
- Geospatial use cases for WoT
- Help defining geospatial aspects of the discovery process. Specifically they are trying to specify how to encode location in their standard. I think we could provide some help there. They have already looked at SSN, GeoSPARQL, SDWBP. The latter provides some guidance already, but they need a bit more. They're looking to encode position and some other location aspects (acceleration, direction, height, accuracy, units) using an RDF representation.

Their relevant issues can be found under the 'geolocation' label: [1]: https://github.com/w3c/wot-testing/labels/Geolocation

These are particularly relevant:
- https://github.com/w3c/wot-testing/issues/76
- https://github.com/w3c/wot-thing-description/issues/941
- https://github.com/w3c/wot-testing/issues/58

@Mccool, Michael<mailto:michael.mccool@intel.com>: You could maybe point to some sample Thing Descriptions that have geolocation? I know you showed a few at the call in January but I couldn't find them. Probably people from this group would have valuable comments.
