Data on the Web Best Practices Updated; Two Vocabularies as First Public Working Drafts

The Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group has published an update to its best practice guide along with first public working drafts of two vocabularies: one covering Data Quality and the other Dataset Usage.

Together, they seek to create a Web-based ecosystem in which data is published intelligently so that it can be discovered and understood. Potential consumers will be able to assess whether or not the data is fit for a specific purpose and, if so, they may choose to describe their usage. This might be by means of feedback, citation, or through discovery metadata of their own.

The working group is keen to receive feedback on all three documents both in terms of the specifics and the overall direction being taken. Learn more about the Data Activity.
