Hi John,
I'm in northern Scotland at the moment and hope to be in Edinburgh by 5:30 
Thursday 30/6, so can do dinner if I get a message at the Central Best 
Western Hotel.
The OneGeology Management meeting on Friday probably finishes around 5:30 
but I think they usually organise a post-meeting dinner. Can you check 
with Ian Jackson or Katy to see if there are any plans?

Hi Bruce,
There is a EuroGeoSurveys meeting at 17.30 on the Thursday so if that day 
it would have to be after it finishes.

I have asked Don if he is perhaps available for dinner on Thursday 30/6 or 
Friday 1/7.  How does that sound to everyone?

Objet : Meeting with Don Murray (Safe Software president) 
Hi IWG gents,
Dale and Terry Rankine and I had a chat with Don Murray of Safe Software 
yesterday to get a feeling for what kind of cooperation he is after with 
us.  Don is looking to upgrade the 2012 version of FME to import/export 
complex features XML.  He has already started an “XML Challenge” (a bit 
technical challenge, a bit marketing gimmick) for people to send him some 
XML data and he will try to import it into FME (see here: 
http://blog.safe.com/2011/05/defeating-xml-gml-part-2-of-2/ and 
http://screencast.com/t/uv83xHNZgQ).  The example shown is pretty simple, 
but Don wants to be able to handle more complex XML and is after complex 
XML examples (ie, instances and WFS services) and data transfer scenarios 
(eg, import borehole sample data into an ESRI geodatabase, or an Oracle 
database) for him to work with. 
We told Don where he could find the AuScope portal services (GeoSciML, 
EarthResourceML, O&M), and that he can use the test datasets and 
validation tools that are being used by AuScope and the Geoserver 
development team.  The AuScope SLAKE water measurements test dataset, 
which uses O&M for its WFS, is probably in the best shape for Don’s 
purposes right now and we told him that if he can import/export the XML 
patterns in O&M, then he will be able to handle GeoSciML too.
Don will be at the INSPIRE conference (27 June – 1 July) and would like to 
catch up with the GeoSciML people there to progress co-operation between 
us.  (I won’t be at the INSPIRE conference.)  Don will not be around 
during the Edinburgh GeoSciML meeting (4-8 July), and then will be in San 
Diego for the ESRI user conference (July 11-15 where he will catch up with 
Robyn Gallagher from GA and others - ?Steve). 
Could I ask the IWG reps who will be at the INSPIRE conference (John, Tim, 
Bruce, Jean-Jacques) to arrange a meeting with Don during the INSPIRE 
conference through his executive assistant, Preeti Sharma - 
preeti.sharma at safe.com.  (Don’s email: dcm at safe.com)
PS. Could you include Dale in the INSPIRE conference meeting.
