Data Type Registries WG & #2


Group details

Larry Lannom, Tobias Weigel
Secretariat Liaison: 
Yolanda Meleco
Case Statement: 

The DTR2 group is currently following up on the work of the DTR group using this space as there is a demand for revisions based on the initial adoption experiences.

The Data Type Registries Working Group will compile a set of use cases for data type use and management. It will identify and distinguish among existing ‘type registry’ efforts and their potential interaction with this group  and formulate a data model and expression for types. It will also design a functional specification for type registries and propose a federation strategy among multiple type registries at both the technical and organizational levels.

DTR call scheduled


A DTR group call has been scheduled for 1 Feb at 16:00 UTC, lasting up to one hour. This will be one of potentially two calls between now and P9. Logistics will be sent out before the call.

Topic suggestions welcome. I will ask Giridhar to give a brief summary of the ISO activity, for those who haven’t heard about this yet, and will preview, to the extent that there is anything more to say, the P9 Breakout. Basically, however, I think we should 1) get around the table updates for any DTR-related projects and 2) views on what needs to be done next.

Re: [rda-dtr-wg][rda-pid-ig][rda-collection-wg] CFP: Persistent Identifier session at EGU 2017

Thanks, Tobias, for sharing this CfP. I'm forwarding your message to the
Geospatial IG, where it is definitely of interest (although the
submission deadline is quite short).
