Dear Taggers,

It is that time of year again when we turn our attention to the TDWG  

It is a requirement of the Technical Architecture Group to produce a  
Roadmap document that gives a vision of where we are and where we are  
going. A kind of high level overview.

Last year I printed this out and got it distributed in the conference  
pack and will consider doing the same again this year. I have to give  
a presentation near the beginning of the meeting and I intend this to  
be based of the Roadmap.

Whether or not you are attending the conference I would like to have  
your opinions and help in constructing this document. It is your  
chance to reflect what you think the true state of affairs are in the  
TDWG world and where you think things should go.

I have created a wiki page to author the document on here:


Please contribute directly to the wiki or comment back to the list.

I am considering having a section on 'Projects' that covers ALA, EoL,  
GBIF and others activities but am worried about missing projects off  
or how relevant this is. What do you think?

As always I am grateful for your thoughts,
