Description At the August 24th, 2014 meeting of the Reference Information Model Subcommittee, the members discussed the following topics:

1.TOPIC: Are we preparing a committee note or committee specification explaining the NIEM Adapters? Yes. Werner is preparing the draft and assembling any input documents from which to draw. (Background information includes presentation by Lizzie on Feb 20, 2014, see minutes for discussion.) Whether to move forward with a note or a specification is an ongoing discussion. Also to be decided is the best place to provide access to the adapters.

2.TOPIC: Should we include supporting schema in our zip releases? Yes, for various reasons, including to make it easier for users, to ensure the primary schemas validate out of the box, to ensure we have the correct versions of the supporting schemas which were used when the standard was developed, etc.; however, a folder template structure should be considered to clarify which schemas are supporting and which are primary.

3.TOPIC: Should we add “elevation” to GML Simple Features (GSF) Profile? Perhaps. CAP may use GSF or Geo-RSS and this hasn’t yet been decided. The decision may impact the need to include “elevation” in GSF.

4.TOPIC: When supporting schema changes are under consideration, should a working group developing a new standard include the latest approved versions of those supporting schema? Yes, that is the recommended general practice. If a new release is coming soon, the group can consider that. New releases do not mean older versions are obsolete, so it’s helpful to know which versions of schema were used and handy to have those included in a specification’s zip file.
