I'm not sure if I'm the only one here, but I thought it was about time
to get a discussion started.

I'm interested in community driven map data collection, and very
interested in the formats used for storing such maps.  I was looking
into electronic map formats a few years ago, and did learn some things
about the Norwegian map format SOSI.

The source of the SOSI standard is the national Norwegian mapping
department, and their standardization web page is available in
Norwegian from <URL:http://www.statkart.no/IPS/?template=standard>.

There are links to the international standardization effort ISO/TC 211
Geographic Information/Geomatics, <URL:http://www.isotc211.org/>, as
well.  I assume this effort are relevant for us.

Are there anyone reading this mailing list?  Are there a web based
mailing list archive available?  If not, I suggest using gmane.org as
the mailing list archive.
