The Maps For HTML Community Group has been launched:
The Maps in HTML Community Group seeks to establish at least one hypermedia type which can be considered to be consumed by a (new) “map” element for HTML. Follow-on from Bar Camp at #lgd14. The objective will be to define a hypermedia type which can be linked to from a hypothetical (but prototyped in Web Components) “map” or (geo-map for Web Components) element which will provide simple mashup capabilities and user interface.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2014-03-06 by Peter Rushforth. The following people supported its creation: Peter Rushforth, Alistair Phillips, Philippe Duchesne, Ethan Dagner, Andrea Perego. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of its activities.
The group now has access to W3C-hosted services for email, blog, wikis, irc, tracking tools, and more. Read more about tools and services available by default and upon request.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on firstname.lastname@example.org
