Below please find a first draft of the concepts and/or issues of incremental updating and versioning, which we identified at our workshop on 4-5 August 2001 (Beijing, China) and revisited at our workshop on 14-15 October 2002 (BKG, Frankfurt a.M., Germany).
The International Cartographic Association's (ICA) Working Group on Incremental Updating and Versioning held its third meeting in Beijing, China, from Saturday 4 to Sunday 5 August 2001, which was its second joint workshop with the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), on Incremental Updating and Versioning of Spatial Data Bases. As this is a new field of research, one of the outputs of this workshop was this first draft of the concepts and issues of incremental updating and versioning. At the Joint ICA/ISPRS/EuroGeographics Worksop, held at the BKG Headquarters, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, it was decieded to join groups 1 and 2 and to discuss these issues, by e-mail, throughout the year toward the Durban meeting, planned for August 7-10, 2003.
Working Group will now refine these further, with the aim of producing
book for the 2005 ICC in Spain.
concepts and issues identified

were grouped into eight categories. Categories 1 and 2 were
agregated together before resolving to discuss the issues by mail, as
