I'd like to propose the following tasks for contribution by the GSDI
members this year, as achieved through the GSDI Technical WG. Please
feel free to comment, volunteer, and propose additional items.
2007 Tasks for Technical WG:
1. Work with the Open Geospatial Consortium on the common definition of
an "SDI 1.0" suite of standards and an approach for future designations.
Status: The OGC Architecture Board is beginning discussions of the
concept and rationale behind an OGC perspective on an SDI suite of
standards and will develop a position soon. GSDI members will be invited
to comment and contribute their SDI implementation perspectives. The TWG
should recommend a GSDI position relative to this branding.
2. Develop a global registry for all geospatial web services.
Status: A prototype Web Services Registry of all known geospatial web
services from numerous catalogs is being prototyped for the Group on
Earth Observation (GEO) System of Systems (GEOSS) activity. Members of
the GSDI Association (a recognized GEO Participating Organization) is
welcome to support this activity in support of earth observation and SDI
interests. An operational capability is expected by May 2007.
3. Revise the GSDI Cookbook to reflect current practices and standards
Status: No progress yet, need to solicit input and editors for updates
of the various chapters for a Version 3.0 release, if there is
