Here we are working on a proposal to modify the way dcat:accessURL works, and what to do about the subclasses of dcat:Distribution (dcat:Download, dcat:Feed, etc.). This is intended to resolve ISSUE-8 and ISSUE-9, and specifically the issues summarized nicely by Phil here.

Summary of the changes suggested:

  1. Remove the subclasses of dcat:Distribution
  2. Add a subproperty of dcat:accessURL named dcat:downloadURL. The new property provides a direct download link of the distribution
  3. Add a new property to the dcat:Dataset class named dcat:landingPage. This property links a dataset to some web page where the dataset can be gained.

To Do

  • Once the proposal is completely written up and feedback is being solicited, we should ping Ed Summers, as he originally raised these issues. (There was an action on George to ping Ed, which I believe was never done.)
