The in-person meeting phase of the 2013 SOCoP GeoVoCamp has now concluded. In the next few days we will be posting material (including the ontology jokes developed as part of GeoVoCamp tradition) on the VoCamp site, which is again operating and on the SOCoP workshop page. 

Attached to this email is the impromptu that Jano provided in response to a request for idea on how to develop ODPs.  This uses the draft Transformation pattern as the subject of analysis.

Hi everybody,

We shall soon be seeing each other in DC. I hope all your plans are intact. I will be arriving a bit late since my flight is for Mon morning and I could only find an affordable ticket for Baltimore. I won't be able to reach till 11:00am or so probably since I land only at 8:40am.

But our group is quite mature, we know each other, and our topic has been under discussion for some time. And like last time, David Mark has agreed to introduce the topic on hydro ontology and surface networks.

I have put together a few possibly relevant papers for your perusal. It would be nice if you could look first the ones by Hahmann and Brodaric, and Bennet et al.  Next, Wellen and Sieber's paper presents a folk ontology approach to the topic. There is also an extract that David created from Pat Hayes' Naïve Physics Manifesto. If we stick to the more scientific interpretations of hydro features, we are not sure if the naïve geography or folk ontology approaches would matter as much. We shall see how all this evolves. It could be that none of these papers help us in the end :) but some page skimming at least gets us going and David's presentation should set us in the right direction at least.

And, finally, I have also included our submitted paper on surface network ontology that some of us co-authored and is under review by the Semantic Web journal. The premise of this workshop group is that we will build on surface network concepts to develop the ontology pattern for hydro features.

Thanks and see you all soon!
