All good. adding GWML v2 standardisation is underway as well (not sure if relevant) ?

Hi gang, sorry about the short notice...

The submission deadline is tonight, and I'd like to get something in to keep IWG work on the radar at AGU. Here's a draft-if you get a chance, have a read and edit as you see fit!



GeoSciML and EarthResourceML Update, 2012

Interoperability working group activities during 2012 include deployment of services using the GeoSciML-portrayal schema, addition of new vocabularies to support properties added in version 3.0, improvements to server software for deploying services, and introduction of EarthResourceML v.2 for mineral resources, coordination with the IUSS of a soils markup language for soils information. GeoSciML-portrayal is an OGC GML simple-feature application schema for presentation of geologic map unit, contact, and shear displacement structure (fault and ductile shear zone) descriptions in web map services.  Use of standard vocabulary for geologic ages and lithology enables map services using shared legends to achieve visual harmonization of maps provided by different services. X new vocabularies have been added to the collection of CGI vocabularies provided to support interoperable GeoSciML services; vocabularies can be accessed through http://resource.geosciml.org. Concept URIs can be dereferenced to obtain SKOS rdf or html representations using SISSVoc vocabulary service. New releases of the FOSS GeoServer application greatly improve support for complex XML feature schemas like GeoSciML, and the ArcGIS for INSPIRE extension implements similar complex feature support for ArcGIS server.

These improved server implementations greatly facilitate deploying GeoSciML services. EarthResourceML v2 adds features for information related to mining activities. SoilML provides and interchange format for soil, soil profile, and terrain information. Work is underway to add GeoSciML to the portfolio of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) specifications.
