14:14:49 [matt]
Ronald: I'm head of R&D at Layar. Normally Dirk, the CTO would be here as well. We're interested in POI representations and want to contribute to the standards.

where ?
14:39:57 [matt]
Andy: I'm looking at Atlanta, Georgia, US.

14:41:41 [matt]
Andy: The only European city I have access to is Copenhagen. That's an option, but getting people to go to Scandinavia in December might be hard.
14:41:46 [Carl]
As the OGC has a great interst in POI as it relates to gazetteer, perhaps we can host an Australia/Asia ad-hoc in Sydney?

Topic: Use case creation
14:45:11 [matt]
Andy: Last week at ISMAR Christine put together a meeting of various organizations to discuss AR standards. As a team we came up with three generic AR use cases. Thought it might be worthwhile to walk through those AR use cases.
14:45:12 [cperey]
14:45:48 [ggale]
Would also help if members state briefly on IRC what their prime objectives are for participation on the WG ... ?
14:46:48 [ggale]
Works for me
14:46:54 [danbri]
could also action people to send that as intro message before next week's call

14:48:15 [Carl_Reed]
Sorry - need to use correct name tag. Thanks, JonathanJ
14:48:34 [matt]
cperey: The three use cases were: 1. assisting a user through a process in the real world 2. 'social AR' in essence, though not necessarily shared. user attaches or attributes content to something in the real world 3. a system that supports bi-directional interaction between two or more users with a real-time communication component to it.
14:49:28 [cperey]
feel free to check out the other materials created
14:49:35 [matt]
Andy: Probably a good first one to walk through would be the 'Guide' use case. It's generic enough for the typical use case of overlaying a wiring diagram over an engine for maintenance work.
14:49:38 [cperey]
the content is aggregated here:
14:50:09 [matt]
Andy: the 2nd would be similar to the typical AR browser. Finding a place, investigating a POI, etc. Other thoughts on this one? Are there specific things in POI that we should include?

How familiar is this group with gazetteers?
14:50:40 [cperey]
ditto, please share
14:51:00 [danbri]
zakim, who is speaking?
14:51:11 [Zakim]
danbri, listening for 10 seconds I heard sound from the following: Andy (4%), Karl (78%), Ronald (10%)
14:51:11 [matt]
Karl_: Just to state my objectives: the world is suffering a lack of shared descriptions for places of business, etc.
14:51:21 [cperey]
that was not the objective of the AR use cases we developed
14:51:25 [ggale]
Absolutely +1 Carl
14:51:38 [matt]
Karl_: There have been various attempts at it, but there hasn't been one congealed standard for it, how that helps AR is one obvious stepping stone.
14:52:02 [danbri]
for describing businesses, there is a healthy amount of data floating around lately
14:52:05 [Zakim]
14:52:08 [matt]
ggale: That mirrors my objectives on this. In addition to working out who means what across the multitude of siloed POI data at the moment.

I will post links and information on gazetteers to the wiki. Gazetteers in a sense are a shared description of a place. The shared description are done by authorities, such as the UN or NGA

Matt: We obviously have non-AR use cases, we just happened to have this stuff from the AR workshop last week. Perhaps an action to start collecting the non-ar use cases.
14:53:56 [matt]
Andy: Agreed. As Karl said POIs are important to AR. If we have a single description of business etc then we want to make sure it fits the AR use cases as well. The fact that we had some AR work done already made it a good discussion point.

danbri: I mentioned the group to a colleague who is doing some work on geodata in Somalia. He took a very precise reading of the word "points" -- x, y coordinates. I took it to mean entities of interest, and a signal to the world that we're starting basic and building up.
14:58:14 [matt]
danbri: We're going to start with things and attach properties rather than try to reinvent GML.
14:58:28 [cperey]
who is speaking? Carl?
14:58:55 [matt]
Karl: I'd love for us to discuss the scope of things we're trying to describe. One thing is locations: points, locations, geofenced things, etc. Not to be confused with places of interest, which can have multiple locations, a building that has a name, etc.
14:58:59 [matt]

Karl: What Gary was alluding to was what's the core-shared common set of descriptions of a business.
14:59:44 [cperey]
but an entity of interest could be a person, or a car or an object which is not fixed in space
14:59:52 [matt]
Karl_: I rankle at the word business, many of them aren't businesses.
15:00:34 [Andy]
I second Christine's point about people
15:00:57 [matt]
Gary: We need to understand a few different pieces of terminology: places, points, ??-oids. Unless we lock this down at an early stage there will be bedlam from people inferring things.

15:02:05 [danbri]
back in the summer I posted a list of kinda 'test cases', ... list of potential 'things that we might consider POIs'; in Karl's sense, these are places (unbounded), not just locations.

15:03:01 [ggale]
q+ ??-oids was a reference to centroids
15:03:02 [matt]
Carl: There are some really large gazetteers out there already. ?? maintains one with 2 million points. Many nav companies have these, may not call them gazetteers.

For all things geospatial, ISO TC 211 maintains a public terms and definitions application. The OGC and ISO communities have developed these terms and definitions.
15:04:51 [matt]
danbri: To what extent do gazetteers have common types, categories, etc?
15:05:17 [Andy]
cperey this may be different as it POI while that was heavily AR
15:05:22 [matt]
Karl_: Obviously from the nav side of the business we have a number of them with tens-going-on-hundreds of millions of places in them. We really struggle with categorization.
15:05:38 [matt]
Karl_: We have our own plus have to pay homage to @@ and ?? standards.
