    • Refining our component elements and attributes

    • Vote to add Jan Stuckens as PipelineML SWG co-chair to replace Terry Strahan
  3. Discussion on standardization of international units of measure
  4. Request comments on component elements and attributes inventory 
    • Changes necessary to support internationalization?
    • Any missing attribution for existing component list?
  5. Internationalization Issues
    • Is there a valid use case for the interchange of pipeline data across nationalities and languages such that we need to unify translated terminologies using common numeric values?
    • How have other OGC groups handled international encoding?
    • What lessons have been learned about what not to do?
  6. Discussion on reference code list integration and management
    • Store stable reference code lists as enumerations     in schema
    • Store nonstable lists temporarily in schema until more viable approach is developed
    • Oasis Genericode
    • Schematron
    • CSW-ebRIM
    • Custom built online type registry
  7. Questions and Answers
  8. Open Discussion

We introduced Jan Stuckens of Merkator NV/SA in Belgium. OGC staff introduced us to Jan several months ago. After extensive dialogue, it was apparent how closely aligned Jan’s knowledge, skills and philosophies were aligned with those of the SWG. A co-chair seat was vacated when Terry Strahan left his previous company that was a member of the OGC. So, we proposed Jan be elected to this co-chair seat. There were no objections to unanimous consent and Jan was elected as Co-chair of OGC PipelineML SWG.
