Dear all,

As I hope you'll have seen, we recently launched a new Spatial Data on
the Web Working Group [1]. We (W3C) are collaborating closely with our
sister standards body, the Open Geospatial Consortium, so that the
standards we produce will be jointly published by both OGC and W3C. In a
nutshell, the idea is to make GIS and LOD work together more easily.

The WG is collecting use cases very rapidly [2] - this WG is being very
productive very quickly. But we need your help. The conversation and the
use cases so far are much more heavily weighted towards the world of OGC
and GIS than Linked Data.

If you work with spatial data (including non-geo uses such as in life
sciences) and do so in a Linked Data framework, if you use LD to
integrate disparate data sources and link them to a location etc. then
please let us have your use cases.

Ideally of course you join the WG, but if you can't so that, we'd like
to hear your use cases via the public-sdw-comments at w3.org. Obviously use
cases that cover areas not already covered are the ones we're most
hoping for.

Decisions are made by those who turn up... and we really want you to
turn up!
