About the group

The mission of the Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group, part of the Data Activity, is:

  • to develop the open data ecosystem, facilitating better communication between developers and publishers;
  • to provide guidance to publishers that will improve consistency in the way data is managed, thus promoting the re-use of data;
  • to foster trust in the data among developers, whatever technology they choose to use, increasing the potential for genuine innovation.

The guidance will take two forms: a set of best practices that apply to multiple technologies, and vocabularies currently missing but that are needed to support the data ecosystem on the Web.
