- 1 translation for Data Catalog Vocabulary (DCAT) - Version 2
DCAT is an RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogs published on the Web. This document defines the schema and provides examples for its use.
The Profiles Ontology is an RDF vocabulary to describe profiles of (one or more) standards for information resources. It describes the general pattern of narrowing the scope of a specification with additional, but consistent, constraints, and is particularly relevant to data exchange situations where conformance to such profiles is expected and carries additional context. The Profiles Ontology enables profile descriptions to specify the role of resources related to data exchange such as schemas, ontologies, rules about use of controlled vocabularies, validation tools, and guidelines. The ontology may however be used to describe the role of artifacts in any situation where constraints are made on a the usage of more general specifications.
This document lists use cases iteratively compiled by the Dataset Exchange Working Group. They identify current shortcomings and motivate the extension of the Data Catalog Vocabulary (DCAT). Further, they motivate the creation of guidelines for and a formalisation of the concept of (application) profiles and how to describe those, and the need for a mechanism to exchange information about those profiles including profile-based content-negotiation.
This document describes how Internet clients may negotiate for content provided by servers according toprofiles. This is distinct from negotiating by Media Type or Language: the profile is expected to specify the content of information returned, which may be a subset of the information the responding server has about the requested resource, and may be structured in a specific way to meet interoperability requirements of a community of practice.
