Thanks for the pointer Steve, and drawing up the case Phil. Data journalism is a really interesting example of data on the web. Have you seen Nate Silver’s recently relaunched blog FiveThirtyEight [1], where all articles begin with the data.

Other examples are the Wall Street Journal’s Number Guy column [2] and the Guardian’s data blog [3]. I’ll add these links to the use-case doc.

While this use-case highlights the importance of correct linking to original data used, it could also be linked to the challenge of how public bodies know how the data is being used, for their evaluation purposes...

Hi Steve,

Please imagine now how it could be better.
One of my favorite example in this case is the open data communities website. [1]
They have a clear URI policy. For the Local Authorities Dataset, the identifier of
Hampshire County Council is http://opendatacommunities.org/id/county-council/hampshire, which is dereferenceable to
http://opendatacommunities.org/doc/county-council/hampshire in your browser. They also point to different format distributed.

They also show datasets by theme, see here http://opendatacommunities.org/themes/geography for geography, and the corresponding metadata at http://opendatacommunities.org/def/concept/themes/geography.

Look out this visu at http://opendatacommunities.org/deprivation/map referenced the datasets used.

Well, maybe what is missing is the use of a more standardized vocab for catalog (DCAT)? To me, they contain many good examples for best practices document .
