Task Status

This page is part of the ongoing SWIM communities of interest discussions. The content is working material. It should not be treated as final as it is still subject to review, comment and change.


This task will look after the maintenance of the supporting material including when to add new content to the "reference" website.

3InformationImprove content

Benefit from the evolution of the other supporting material

E.g. role of the SWIM SRV Spec can be used as inspiration for updating the "Introduction to" the spec page.

The group will develop a new diagram to better reflect the role of the specification. SINTEF and EUROCONTROL to lead.Not Started2Sprint 2

After simplifying the scope statement it is now possible that it is too simple. It does not say what information is include. Basically it says "this scope of the service is this service"...

23Informationupdate standard's version number

https://ext.eurocontrol.int/swim_confluence/display/SWIM/SWIM-INFO-012+Use+of+data+types

The ISO 2005 standards referenced here have all be withdrawn and replaced with 2011/15 versions? Should this change be reflected.

However, ISO 19103:2005 is used in the AIRM and in AIXM. That version of the standard seems pretty "hard-coded" for the moment. There is a need to talk to the various communities in order to move. However, hopefully there is no fundamental change between versions on what a boolean, etc. is. Likewise, hopefully, the conversion rules would be unaffected.

Is anybody able to check that?

1Fix bugs

Table widths are not consistent. Some do not seem to respond to a reduced window size:

SWIM-INFO-014 cannot be made smaller due to the length of the urn.

The rest of the tables have been made responsive so will match the window size.

5Annotation of the Donlon example

Annotating the Donlon example would make it clearer which parts of the specification are satisfied by which parts of the example.

Reviewing Donlon Example: Overall the example is very comprehensive and I think really useful for advanced users. But for an introduction to the topic (especially coming from a non-aviation point of view - like me) it is huge, in particular in combination with the Service Description part and/or when using the XML format. I think it could be helpful to add some more comments which SWIM-INFO parts are covered. In the XML example there are some comments for the information definition level (SWIM-INFO-003 to 005) but not below. What really helped me was the fact that there are more formats (not just xsd/xml but also data catalogue)! In combination with the Service Description point of view many things became clearer. So this is something I would definitely keep in the evolution/updates.
