    As fas as maps go, it would alleviate the reasons for the hacks we use to load more tiles in parallel

    Wow not expecting answers. Color me surprised.
    Lol did not know HTTP3 existed yet
    Cool, thanks for the explanation

    From Jonathan Moules in Zoom:
    HTTP is a Transport Protocol. It shouldn't really care about the stuff that's going over it, that's a higher level of the OSI model.

    How do we teach our kids about maps if we don't have a standard for maps

    Answering @tomkralidis , I see a dystopian future where only three web mapping platforms work well natively in three web browsers.

    Being fully on the developer side, I hate that I had to learn about different coordinate reference systems and why my coordinates don't work the same everywhere. This makes Features way more abstract than they should be. Even when lat/lon order doesn't matter, like [12,12]. That should always put me in Africa.

    What Daniel's talking about is a flavour of the Jevons Paradox - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jevons_paradox - "When technological progress or government policy increases the efficiency with which a resource is used the rate of consumption of that resource rises due to increasing demand"

    I don't hear anyone talking about how you relay the semantics of a map to a screen reader. I did miss the first hour on Wednesday...
    If you get a native element. you must also define the semantics of the element and the accessibly APIs
    Doug Schepers
    @shepazu
    Making controls a commonly available API helps everyone, especially accessibility; you can make them flexible through the API

    @prushforth
    @fredesch I think the <feature> element would be where I would say to start?

    Are maps considered for "offline" functionality, like how it can be with downloaded local Google Map data

    Service workers?

    From Chris Little on Zoom:
    Question: does the panel think that maps will only take off when AR does?
    Peter Rushforth
    @prushforth
    Maps are already big!
    Iván Sánchez Ortega
    @IvanSanchez_gitlab
    Offline/cached stuff is a political/economical problem, not a technical one. As I said yesterday, preventing users from caching means more billable HTTP requests, which means more cash.
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Yeah like service workers I suppose. I guess since <map> would be HTML that ties right in. +1
    I think maps have taken off already
    Iván Sánchez Ortega
    @IvanSanchez_gitlab
    (I feel like I'm repeating stuff that I already wrote about, but I made a radical proposal for P2P IPFS-like caches at https://ivan.sanchezortega.es:444/politics/2020/09/01/mapml-essay-part5-the-gold-the-moor-the-sausage-machine.html )

    @briankardell_twitter
    I feel like there are two very different aspects to the a11y questions... part of that is about interaction/interactive elements.. The answer to that is it should use the existing platform or fill in what is missing. If it is about making the rendering accessible, are the existing forms not all there too?

    they have proprietary a things in everything else the browser does/did too

    @fredesch
    You need two implementations to be added to HTML.

    @AmeliaBR
    My analogy: YouTube (and its Google owners) didn't block <video>, it adopted it. IMO, The commercial asset is the map content (and the paid services to search/use it), not the map viewer.
    Fred Esch
    @fredesch
    Won't Joanmarie require you have semantics and accessibility APIs defined for a new element?
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Yes. It often has to be explained that an Image of a Map is not a map, especially to the Web. It is an image.
    Satoru Takagi
    @satakagi
    @AmeliaBR
    The video element is similar to the each video shown in youtube, but the map being discussed here seems to be similar to a service like youtube.

    Amelia: this is the last of our live sessions but not end of the workshop, reminder all the sessions are recorded and posted to Youtube
    … continued conversations on Discourse

    @zcorpan
    While we're plugging things, I'd like to also say that we (Bocoup) are available for hire to help to standardize new things for the web platform and drive consensus among stakeholders :)
    tguild
    @tguild
    … anyone you know who haven't been engaged in the discussions but interested, please direct them to agenda page and Discourse for videos and the next stage
    Peter: thank you everyone, appreciate all the input and different perspectives
    … I want to reiterate a number of things I learned this week. first and foremost is the importance of accessibility for web maps
    … augmented reality will be important as well
    … understanding of needs for web maps will evolve
    … are there other stakeholders that you can identify that should be looped into this conversation?
    … do people agree standardizing maps for the web is worthwhile? I know some disagree
    Fred Esch
    @fredesch
    standardization is good
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Absolutely. There are many stakeholders in cultural heritage and digital humanities. We are a group that represents that stakeholder, and can be found at https://iiif.io/community/

    … what are the next steps? try to form a new Working Group at W3C? perhaps a joint group with OGC or go back to the Community Group...
