15. Andrea Perego

What exactly is the scope of DCAT? Datasets or any kind of resource? Consider extending the scope.

16. Ed Simons

Issues

  • How to express dataset relationships such as "derived from"
  • Time-related properties don't allow stating what agent caused the event
  • Publisher is not the only dataset-agent relationship; creator and maintainer are important
  • Catalog language is superfluous and ambiguous
  • No license attached to each individual dataset metadata record
  • Link from CatalogRecord to Catalog not necessary; link to Dataset sufficient
  • Distribution types shouldn't be implicit

Suggestions

  • Add classes that represent connections between DS-DS, DS-Agent, Cat-Agent
  • Add Person and Organisation class
  • Add classes for each type of distribution
17. Makx Dekkers

The mental model of catalogs + datasets, and whether they can be used independently, is not really clear

18. Makx Dekkers

Is it implied that a dcat:Dataset must have at least one distribution on the Web

19. Makx Dekkers

What is the "single source" that the dcat:Dataset definition talks about?

20. Makx Dekkers

Spec presents Concept and ConceptScheme in a single box despite being separate classes

21. Makx Dekkers

Not clear what distinguishes a dataset from rdfs:Resource

22. Makx Dekkers

Range of dct:language should be dct:LinguisticSystem

23. Makx Dekkers

DCAT should not place restrictions on use of SKOS
