   Thank you for these recommendations.  Our OpenSearch interface has been developed in collaboration with an ESIP cluster, which has currently identified the following response format:  http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Discovery_Cast_Atom_Response_Format .  We will work with them to discuss the recommended changes that you have listed.  I am ok with you using our response documents as examples.

Subject: Re: [OSGeo-Standards] Proposal for Open Search Geo extension support of point and line

Hi Douglas

After checking the ATOM feed from the ECHO project I'd like to ask you if I can use it in the examples of the OGC OpenSearch GeoSpatial Extension document I'm editing.

I'd also suggest - if I may :) -  some changes on the ECHO results of the atom:rel values that are being used on the atom:link elements so that they are according to the iana registry (http://www.iana.org/assignments/link-relations/link-relations.xhtml) and the OGC document.

My comments regarding the ECHO atom results are the following

#1 Browse Image

So where is the rel = "http://esipfed.org/ns/fedsearch/1.0/browse#
like in
<link href="ftp://ladsftp.nascom.nasa.gov/allData/5/MOBRGB/2009/121/MOBRGB.A2009121.0020.005.2009126214738.jpg" hreflang="en-US" type="image/jpeg" title="" rel="http://esipfed.org/ns/fedsearch/1.0/browse#" length="660988"></link>

you could change it to rel="icon"
<link href="ftp://ladsftp.nascom.nasa.gov/allData/5/MOBRGB/2009/121/MOBRGB.A2009121.0020.005.2009126214738.jpg" hreflang="en-US" type="image/jpeg" title="" rel="icon" length="660988"></link>

#2 Data Access

the same to  the data relation
<link href="ftp://ladsftp.nascom.nasa.gov/allData/5/MOD02QKM/2009/121/MOD02QKM.A2009121.0020.005.2010241162125.hdf" hreflang="en-US" type="application/x-hdfeos" title="" rel="http://esipfed.org/ns/fedsearch/1.0/data#"></link>

it could be changed to the rel="enclosure"

<link href="ftp://ladsftp.nascom.nasa.gov/allData/5/MOD02QKM/2009/121/MOD02QKM.A2009121.0020.005.2010241162125.hdf" hreflang="en-US" type="application/x-hdfeos" title="" rel="enclosure"></link>

#3 Documentation

The relation that you are using to reference the documentation about the data type


can be changed to


#4 Time Elements

According to the last the suggestions circulated in the last emails, we should use the normal OGC date returnable (dc:date)

So regarding the time elements I would suggest the change of

#5 geo namespace and georrs namespace

Please note that as Matthew said in the last email the geo namespace is used to define the queriables (geo:box, geo:geometry, geo:radius and so on) and the georss is used in the return message to express the spatial dimension of the resources (atom:entry) and search engine (atom:feed)

thanks and best regards

The NASA ECHO project (www.echo.nasa.gov<http://www.echo.nasa.gov/>) is in the process of
providing a search capability, via an ESIP interface (using the Open
Search standard with Geo extension), by point and line.

The current implementation can be seen at https://api.echo.nasa.gov/echo-esip/

The http://www.georss.org/simple specification (which I believe the
extension is based on) provides this support and we would like to
it's addition to the open search geo spec.

For example,

Example URL templates:



Example requests:



I note that the section of the Geo extension on atom responses has the

<georss:line>40.73763 -73.9972 40.73519 -73.99167 40.737015 -73.99035
40.73643 -73.98914 40.734640 -73.990431 40.731617 -73.991504</

we propose an additional element for point,

<georss:point>40.73763 -73.9972</georss:point>

Please let us know if this is proposal is acceptable._______________________________________________
