[OSGeo-Discuss] Geodata Committee reboot: (was: Fwd: Re: Open Source Geospatial Atlas)

we have been requested to move our discussion under it's own thread.

We can do even better than that because we already have a mailing list
in place and 328 members subscribed. But only four mails have been sent
through this list in the past year and none since December 2011 which
qualifies the committee as dead in the water. I suggest we reboot and
continue here.

The next mail goes to geodata exclusively, so feel free to join this list:

Best regards,

Dear all,

I would like to second Arnulf's suggestions for the committee and the
white paper.
Slight amendment : let's name it Open Geospatial Data Committee.
I'd be happy to participate.



Really good idea, and great to see so many interested.

I offer to act as data licensing advisor / clearinghouse and add what we
learn from the process to the OSGeo Wiki. Step one of my planned Public
Geospatial Data Committee revival. Step two will be an OSGeo White Paper
defining Open Data, VGI, Crowdsourced and so on geospatial data. If
there is interest...
