Event Description: 

The POI Standards Working Group has been working on an OGC Standard for Points of Interest. We are excited to share with you that we have reached two milestones:

  1. Completion of a draft UML Conceptual Model for POI 

  2. Completion of a draft JSON Schema for the POI Conceptual Model 

The draft POI Specification and data model can be found at https://github.com/opengeospatial/poi/tree/main/21-049 

Before going any further, the SWG would like to validate that this model is correct and complete. To that end, we need input from a larger body of POI producers and consumers. The SWG requests from everyone in the POI community:

The goal of the POI Data Model standard is to define a POI data model which:

  1. Meets the information needs of POI producers and consumers

  2. Is compatible with existing OGC Feature datasets

  3. Is easily adaptable to any Feature-based data model

All development of the OGC POI Specification is being conducted via the POI github repository (https://github.com/opengeospatial/poi). We welcome engagement and contributions from the wider POI community. 

This effort is informed by the Use Cases documented at https://github.com/opengeospatial/poi/blob/main/POI_Use_Cases.html
