Anyone see an opportunity to follow up with Gemcom Software, either in 
Perth or Vancouver?

G’day Bruce and Lutz
It was great to connect with you both recently on Linked-in. I haven’t 
been involved much with the community since leaving CSIRO but in one of 
those weird occurrences of synchronicity, I was talking with someone here 
about GeoSciML just the day after you connected.
I’m now working as an employee of Gemcom Software, formerly Surpac/Minex 
group, and one of the things I’m keen to do is improve the 
interoperability of the various Gemcom packages with OGC standards. I’m 
slowly building my influence in this area in the company J 
We have development offices in Perth, Brisbane, Hyderabad and Vancouver. 
Head office is in Vancouver so I’d welcome contacts there who might be 
interested in talking to management at a high level about the merits of 
supporting OGC standards and GeoSciML in particular. This could be a long 
wooing process.
I’m particularly interested in 3D representations, such as can be used to 
represent mine models as it’s easier for me to create adoption scenarios 
using them.
sounds like it was a reasonable success, judging by the PDF summary report 
I found at
It sounds like GeoSciML v3 is trundling steadily along, taking a brief 
look at 
BTW apart from GML-based representations I’m also investigating the 3D PDF 
standard which has been released to community. 
I don’t think it replaces GML but is probably going to be in demand as a 
representation format for getting models to presentation packages and 
maybe interchange with some other pure CAD applications.
