From Data on the Web Best Practices
Our scoping criteria
- Is it unique to publishing data on the Web?
- Does it encourage reuse or publication of data on the Web?
- Is it testable?
- In what way?
As resolved at the Face to face meeting at TPAC in 2014
Proposed Scope April 2015
Assumptions of DWBP WG
- DWBP metadata recommendations refer to metadata available in a structured format.
- Structured metadata may be associated with data of any format (including non-structured formats).
- DWBP data recommendations refer to data that can be made available in a structured format.
- DWBP does not recommend any particular format, but may give examples of formats as part of BPs.
- DWBP can refer to / recommend specific W3C Standards in the BPs, but it must also be possible to use non-W3C standards
- Versioning of datasets, vocabularies and APIs
- Datasets in a structured format
- Data archiving/preservation
- How data is managed in an offline repository is out of scope, however, what is left on the Web after archiving has taken place *is* in scope, e.g. the persistence of URIs.
- Details of any one particular format
