Protocol for Web Description Resources (POWDER)

Overview

POWDER provides a mechanism to describe and discover Web resources and provide a succinct way to define any number of predicates for those resources. POWDER is designed to facilitate incorporation of information in larger RDF-based systems.

There are a variety of use cases: from providing a better means to describing Web resources and creating trustmarks to aiding content discovery, child protection and Semantic Web searches, describing copyright or licensing information to a family of resources.

Recommended Reading

The official POWDER documents, published in 2009, include a POWDER Primer. The POWDER Working Group is now closed, but the archives of the Working Group Blog may also be of interest.

A number of textbooks have been published on RDF, RDFS, and on Semantic Web in general. Please, refer to a separate page listing some of those, as maintained by the community. That list also includes references to conference proceedings and article collections that might be of general interest.
