Dear all,

We are pleased to inform you that the European Commission invites metadata 
experts who work on data portals hosting spatial data to participate in a 
new Working Group to develop the GeoDCAT-AP specification. GeoDCAT-AP will 
be an extension of the DCAT application profile for data portals in Europe 
(DCAT-AP) for describing geospatial datasets.

Briefly, the objective is to agree on a DCAT-AP compliant representation 
of geospatial metadata. To achieve this, GeoDCAT-AP will consolidate and 
extent preliminary work concerning the alignment of INSPIRE metadata with 
DCAT-AP (referred to as INSPIRE+DCAT-AP):http://europa.eu/!wT77pV

You may find this work of relevance to your work on Data on the Web best 
Practices. More details on the planned work and the timing are available 
at
https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/node/139283/

The first telecon is planned within the end of this month - a Doodle poll 
has been set up to decide the date:

Should you have further comments or questions, do not hesitate to contact 
us. 

with kind regards,
Stijn
