New Publications by the W3C Data on the Web Best Practices WG
The Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group are delighted to announce the publication of the Data on the Web Best Practices document, the Dataset Usage Vocabulary and the Data Quality Vocabulary.
These deliverables are the outcome of two and a half years of collaborative effort from the Working Group. We believe the Best Practices document and vocabularies are complete, and would love to hear your final comments before they become a W3C Candidate Recommendation (BP doc) and Working Group Notes (vocabs). We are also eager to hear how you are implementing, or plan to implement, the Data on the Web Best Practices.
- The Data on the Web Best Practices document offers advice on how data of all kinds – government, research, commercial – can be shared on the Web, whether openly or not. The underlying aim is to make data intelligently available, maximizing the likelihood of its discovery and reuse. The provision of a variety of metadata, the use of URIs as identifiers and multiple access options are key to this.
- The Dataset Usage Vocabulary offers a framework in which citations, comments, and uses of data within applications can be structured. The aim is to benefit data publishers by enabling assessment of the impact of their efforts to share data, and to benefit data users by encouraging the continued availability of data and the visibility of their own work that uses it.
- The Data Quality Vocabulary offers a framework in which the quality of a dataset can be described, whether by the dataset publisher or by a broader community of users. It does not provide a formal, complete definition of quality, rather, it sets out a consistent means by which information can be provided such that a potential user of a dataset can make his/her own judgment about its fitness for purpose.
We look forward to hearing from you!
