Singapore Geospatial Week

McCool/Jennifer: had discussion with some of the presenters, e.g., those from Hexagon, and got good feedback

<jennifer> https://www.hexagongeospatial.com/

Kaz: wondering about their possible input for use cases, etc.

McCool: asking them about possible collaboration

Smart Cities

McCool: think geolocation, lifecycle and data management would be useful for Smart Cities as well
... (lists some more topics to be added)

<McCool> More in-depth discussion of some topics needed - McCool to create PR ** Data formats, data ingest, semantic annotation (units, geolocation, etc), data schemas

<jennifer> https://www.wsj.com/articles/china-to-launch-initiative-to-set-global-data-security-rules-11599502974

<McCool> Open data portals, dashboards, etc.

<McCool> for app ecosystem

McCool: (will create a PR to add those topics to the initial draft Charter)


McCool: do you have any ideas for the upcoming PlugFest?

Jennifer: 3 things in our mind
... security, discovery
... how to onboard the devices is problematic
... could have a lot of proprietary devices

McCool: yeah, 2 issues here
... discovery itself is different from onboarding
... automatic onboarding is possible only if the manufacture provides the method
... actually, Intel provides some mechanism to share the manufacture's keys
... we have been talking about that kind of points during the lifecycle discussion
... that said, onboarding itself is out of scope for our Charter
... should think carefully about that
... so would start with discovery for PlugFest
... e.g., using LinkSmart
... but that's how to discover devices after onboarding

Jennifer: ok
... security and discovery are enough for the moment

McCool: note that we're now working on an explainer video

<McCool> https://github.com/w3c/wot-marketing/tree/master/material

McCool: that includes some code example about agriculture
... (shows the example code)


McCool: Cristiano is working on this

Jennifer: one of the hurdles people have is how to generate those actual codes
... something launching visual aspects would be helpful
... in addition to the codes
... people have hard time to understand the new mechanisms

McCool: agree

<McCool> https://github.com/w3c/wot-usecases/blob/master/USE-CASES/smart-agriculture-openfield.md

McCool: end-to-end demo above
... we'll include monitoring/actuation, etc.
... there is a link to the related project

SWAMP project

McCool: very interesting

Prev minutes


McCool: (goes through the minutes)

Jennifer: will ping Chinn about the draft Charter

McCool: got some feedback from Eric as well
... any objections?


minutes approved
