Description At the July 10, 2014 meeting of the EMTC Reference Information Model Subcommittee, the members discussed the following topics:

1.TOPIC: What is the status of the NIEM Adapters? Brian is developing and gathering the current NIEM adapters. We should have a complete set within next few days.

2.TOPIC: What is the status of the EDXL Overview white paper? Jeff discussed the goals of the paper, including having relevance to a wide audience and showing applicability of the standards to the common person. Jeff will prepare a more detailed outline for next time.

3.TOPIC: What are the remaining technical questions regarding the SitRep schemas? (a) When we have multiple geographic areas for ExtentOfContamination, should we specify how these relate (e.g. Union, Intersection) as we do in DE 2? Yes. (b) In several places, an element is specified with a set of subelements but all are specified as optional, shouldnÂ’t one be required? Brian will consult with a subject matter expert, e.g. Don McGarry, and find out which, if any of the elements, really is required. (c) There is an element that allows any xml to be inserted, but should that only be allowed at the end of the specification or perhaps relegated to the DE? Better to use DE for extra xml, since inserting arbitrary xml into the middle of an EDXL standard is problematic; (d) Should we use EDXLString more regularly? Yes.

4.TOPIC: What is the status of the new version of Common Types? Werner is preparing this and will report out after he finishes CIQ.

5.TOPIC: Should we consider proposing an Emergency Services Playbook? Rex is considering proposing to the Collateral and Documents subcommittee a project to write an Emergency Services Playbook that could be a game rule book or reference volume.
