ADMS. Asset Descriptions Metadata Schema. 14:15:10 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: It is relevant for GLD. Government institutions are publishing assets like code lists, standards, vocabs. ADMS is for describing those (c.f.

But are, of course, free to then extend and improve before final publication. 14:20:54 <George> q? 14:21:05 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: All four are intended to ready end of March for targetted FPWD publication in May. 14:21:10 <bhyland> q+ 14:22:13 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: There is a 5th vocab, for description of open source software. Not being brought to GLD at this time (outside of charter) 14:23:04 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: It is called RADion - Repository Assets Description 14:23:15 <George> ack bhyland 14:23:18 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2 - very high level, DCAT could be seen as specialization of it (?) 14:24:39 <PhilA2> -> RADion details http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-gld-wg/2012Mar/0048.html 14:25:16 <DaveReynolds> bhyland: a lot of the heavy lifting has been done on these vocabs, it is a funded effort, they are well documented. Encourages GLD folks to look them and voice opinions on them. 14:25:37 <olyerickson> I haven't see region-specific in things I've looked at 14:25:52 <DaveReynolds> bhyland: especially - they should be checked for any region-specific aspects 14:26:14 <olyerickson> We've found core business vocab interesting, and will be looking at location at people as well 14:26:20 <George> q? 14:26:58 <olyerickson> ADMS is harder to figure out application scope. I get DCAT (obviously), I don't quite get use cases for ADMS 14:27:41 <olyerickson> Could PhilA elaborate on ADMS use case (or two) 14:27:53 <DaveReynolds> sandro: asks about timeline guidance for reviewing the vocabs 14:28:06 <bhyland> Note - ADMC Working Group list, see https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/asset/adms/document/adms-working-group 14:28:12 <bhyland> s/ADMC/ADMS 14:28:32 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: targeting completion 1 week on Friday 14:29:16 <PhilA2> -> ADMS http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/asset/adms/home 14:29:24 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: Aiming that ADMS 1.0 becomes FPWD as is because it is already being implemented. So early identification of major issues would be important. 14:30:31 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: Feels that FPWD should separate core model from implementation guidance, which are merged in ADMS 0.9/1.0 14:30:46 <Zakim> -deirdrelee 14:30:51 <Zakim> + +1.443.569.aadd 14:30:51 <bhyland> @PhilA, should we be looking at section 5.2 ADMS Core Elements in https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/asset/adms/wiki/adms-specification-v06 14:30:55 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: Some issues around text v. strings and flagging of machine translation 14:31:07 <DanG> This problem was solved in ISO/IEC 19773 14:31:12 <ZacharyWhitley> ZacharyWhitley has joined #gld 14:31:52 <fadmaa> I am happy to write a comment to the ADMS 14:31:53 <DanG> Sorry 19773 is called Metadata Modules 14:31:55 <bhyland> q+ 14:32:11 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: In particular some of the implementation guide is Europe specific 14:32:13 <George> ack bhyland 14:32:37 <Zakim> +[IPcaller] 14:33:14 <PhilA2> http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/blog/adms-version-09-now-available-joinup-consultation 14:33:38 <PhilA2> ADMS Namespace doc http://philarcher.org/adms/ADMS_v0.10.rdf 14:35:27 <PhilA2> Joinup http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/ 14:36:25 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: [Clarifying ADMS use cases ...] Joinup is an example use. It provides "semantic assets" - includes vocabularies, code lists, standards. Provides discovery portal for public sector employees to find such assets. 14:37:16 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: ADMS a vocab for describing these assets. Such an asset is different from a dataset. 14:37:47 <PhilA2> RADion UML http://philarcher.org/adms/RADion%20v0.05.png 14:38:03 <George> q? 14:38:55 <olyerickson> PhilA this actually is helpful...thanks... 14:39:17 <olyerickson> Yes 14:39:23 <George> ack 14:39:28 <George> ack DaveReynolds 14:39:28 <Zakim> DaveReynolds, you wanted to ask about registry v. repository 14:39:59 <olyerickson> PhilA described some very futurey concepts IMHO... 14:40:04 <DanG> why is geography separated from SKOS concept scheme and concepts? 14:40:54 <Zakim> -sandro 14:41:15 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: is intended to have a registry aspect, has some notion of status. 14:41:25 <DanG> DanG has left #gld 14:42:36 <DanG> DanG has joined #gld 14:42:37 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: but doesn't have a notion of endorsement by a particular community 14:43:15 <George> q? 14:44:01 <DaveReynolds> DanG: asks why geographic coverage is separated from SKOS concept schemes. Typically geo areas are concept schemes and should be handled uniformly. 14:45:06 <olyerickson> I need DanG to give an example 14:45:12 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: previously had a notion of "domain". Could generalize to allow SKOS concepts to be used there. 14:45:18 <gatemezi> In Geonames, codes are skos:Concept 14:46:46 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: question to group, is it OK to publish as FPWD before sorting issues such as uniform use of concept schemes. 14:47:13 <gatemezi> link Geonames: http://www.geonames.org/ontology/documentation.html 14:47:25 <DaveReynolds> DanG: preference, if group agrees then make changes first before FPWD publication. 14:47:57 <George> q? 14:48:13 <olyerickson> request that DanG elaborate on these issues in "ISSUES" 14:49:38 <DaveReynolds> DanG: points out ISO 19773 has a approach to data types for multi-text, multi-string, multi-data. Type includes both datum and additional information (e.g. language, cultural identifiers). 14:49:49 <DaveReynolds> s/has a/has an/ 14:50:53 <olyerickson> Thanks! 14:51:05 <DaveReynolds> george: suggests capturing these on issues list 14:52:48 <DaveReynolds> PhilA2: [Clarifying relationship of OSS vocab to DOAP] Interest is from UK and Spanish gov. If GLD feels it is relevant it *could* could to encompass that as well.
