Internet Presence Working Group - 2012 Activity Report
This temporary WG was established during the 2009 CIMA Meeting. The CIMA Wiki was then installed, populated and permissions given to CIMA delegates. The 2010 CIMA Meeting decided that the WG should continue to maintain and develop the wiki.
The members of the WG are
- José Luis Esteban (ESP) Chairman
- Richard Meredith-Hardy (GBR)
- Faustine Carrera (FAI Secretariat)
The following table displays the number of new pages added to the wiki during the last months.
The figure displays the weekly number of visits between November 2011 and November 2012. The first peak corresponds to the visits during the 2011 CIMA plenary. As the 2012 plenary approaches an increase of activity can also be seen.
The map illustrates the distribution of visited pages by country.
FAI Expert Groups
During this year the FAI Executive Board has created the FAI Expert System which includes 8 Expert Groups (EG) : Airspace, Navigation, Safety, Regulation, Information Technology, Airsport facilities, New Technology, Marketing and Communication.
This wiki now hosts the collaborative space for the Information Technology Expert Group and the New Technology Expert Group.
Future of this group
During a recent communication between members of the Internet Presence Working Group, it seemed like the WG had no further purpose. There is little work done other than maintaining the Wiki's health and helping others use it.
However, there is more in Information Technology than "Internet Presence". During the last years CIMA activities have seen an increase of IT necessities, like running virtual official boards or developing data capture systems for instant scoring. Therefore, it seems sensible to propose a redefinition of this WG from the original Internet Presence goal to the broader scope of IT projects.
