Comments

  • Conversation about Locality Service document. Reed, Nelson, David, John, (others) to review and add content to answer the questions at the bottom of the document for the next meeting.
    • Nelson: Suggestion: Integrate existing data, then build combined gazetteer. Build the plumbing - to populate these gazetteers.
    • Reed: As a new proposal - would need to be innovative in resolving the streams of data that exist in the community. (analogous perhaps to FilteredPUSH). Mary B. & Reed B. Collectors like to fix / improve their own data.
  • Feedback to David about georeferencing.org as we have it.
  • Videos on Vimeo: each needs paragraph synopsis: appropriate (intended) audience, description of video (recorded as part of a workshop OR produced separately), Kevin says this is possible. We can also order them as we like -- and need to give Kevin feedback on order (or get permission to order these ourselves).
    • Next meeting: 11 March 2014 130PM EST.
