    I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to attend or not,
    but based on the break-out at the recent DAML PI
    meeting in Miami, I expect this IRC get-together
    will be of interest to daml-spacial folks...
    DanBri, Libby, if you're not familiar with daml-spatial,

    RDF IG,
    Following a successful RDF interest group calendar/geographical
    information meeting using IRC, there will be a meeting on geo information this
    Wednesday 16th April at 1500 UTC:
    More about IRC: http://esw.w3.org/topic/InternetRelayChat
    The meeting will be on irc.freenode.net channel #rdfig for about one
    hour. Everyone interested in the topic is welcome to participate.
    The purpose of this meeting is to explore various possible RDF
    vocabularies for describing geographical information, such as latitude
    and longitude, addresses, points and areas and paths between them,
    using specific examples and usecases such as describing the location of
    a restaurant, or descibing a journey.
    http://esw.w3.org/topic/GeoInfo and nearby is being used for notes on
    these topics.
    Some notes about the previous calendar joint meeting are here, including
    some action items which may be part of the agenda:
    The agenda is in draft form here on the ESW wiki -
    please feel free to add suggestions.
    Previous meetings about RDF calendar and RDF query testcases have
    proved a fruitful way of collaborating on fairly well-defined topics.
    Mapping and location-based RDF apps seem to be an increasingly popular
    work area. If you have done work on this topic, do let the rest of the 
    community know, by emailing www-rdf-interest@w3.org, and by linking it
    from the Wiki page above.
