Mission

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

  1. to develop the open data ecosystem, facilitating better communication between developers and publishers;
  2. to provide guidance to publishers that will improve consistency in the way data is managed, thus promoting the re-use of data;
  3. 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.

Organization

The scope of the working group is very broad (significantly broader than most W3C Working Groups) and is clarified through its Use Cases and Requirements document [Latest published version] [Editors' Draft].

The WG benefits from having 4 co-chairs:

  • Hadley Beeman (Invited Expert)
  • Deirdre Lee (Derilinx)
  • Yasodara Córdova, Web Specialist (Ceweb.br/W3C Brasil)
  • Steven Adler, Perspective & Community Outreach (IBM)
