Rajs comment about structure struck me as dead on. I would expect the test bed to be much more engaging if we developed some actual use cases. This would require an early commitment from participants, but would help define what we expect of them and give us a list of people we can harass to

I didn't feel the activity was well enough defined. OGC has done a lot of these types of things, and found that they work best when the participants have a pressing issue to tackle. In the future, I suggest that the integration issue is grounded in a real-world problem that is relevant to

Arnulf, good idea to have a WFS-T we can all connect to. How about we publish the URL before the demo so that we can set up and test our clients, then reset the data at the start of the conference. (Mike Adair is setting up a Mapbuilder client.) Arnulf Christl wrote: Our 2ct for the

A MapServer WMS is probably, just like the database itself, one of the backend services that should be hosted on the main server and have its URL published as early as possible so that others can build their demos against it. But we can definitely keep it running in order to participate

Justin, So it's all Database based. Hmm, I figured it was going to be all different types of source data. This is kinda making it too easy now. (Really!) The system I was going to demo has some good pluses as far as easy integration of disparate data. I don't suppose there is a
