Recommendations

Recommendation Summary Details Benefits Drawbacks Priority Resouces
WebsiteHighlightStandards Highlight the Standards pages. Improve the OGC Website to highlight the main standards more prominently versus the extensions, with stats on implementations. Promote Standards, crowding homepage 2 Denise McKenzie, Lance McKee, Carl Reed, Greg Buehler
WebsiteProminentStandards Promote the most prominent standards. Each main standard should have a landing page with an overview and referring to different versions and extensions. The domain pages, accessible from the home page, should link to the landing pages in their overview of relevant standards. Promote Standards,      
WebsiteReferenceModelOverview unclear The reference model document includes an overview. This should be more prominent in a web page form. The name did not lead me to think it includes an overview.        
WebsiteStandardsStatistics Statistics about which standards are implemented the most would be useful.          
WebsiteCookbooksOnLanding Cookbooks should be found on Landing pages. Cookbooks are only found on the 'Implementations' page. They should be on the landing page of the related standard.        

New Recommendation: (Recommendation should be prepended with Website)  

Discussion

What is being described here is very similar to a proposal to provide descriptions of OGC standards according to a fixed template, likely very similar to the successful OSGeo-Live project, which provides 1 page Project Overviews for the 50 odd Geospatial Open Source projects. (These Project Overviews are now being translated by volunteers into over 10 languages). http://live.osgeo.org/en/overview/overview.html
