Updated document with 'track changes' attached.


1. Evaluator: Douglas Nebert, USGS
2. Submission: GeoServices REST API — Part 2: Catalog Service


1. Requirement: All
2. Implementation Specification Section number: All
3. Criticality: Major
4. Comments/justifications for changes: The Part name of "Catalog" is 
inappropriate relative to the current OGC definition of catalog and the 
existing catalog services standard. Although this may provide access to 
a 'catalog' of services, it is actually reporting service information or 
capabilities. I have changed all use of "catalog" to "services" to help 
avoid misunderstanding within the OGC community. This shall also be 
reflected in the document names and companion schema.
