Hadley, Thank you. Does this deal with the data elements themselves in the
data sets, so you can search for data elements that you want to integrate
with other data elements and find their definitions (metadata) to know if
they are the same or similar enough to be semantically integrated?

Subject: Last call: Data Catalog (DCAT) and Data Cube vocabularies from W3C
Gov Linked Data WG


Hi eGov participants,


We have just put the Data Catalog (DCAT) and Data Cube vocabularies into
Last Call, and would welcome your feedback.


- DCAT is an RDF vocabulary for expressing the contents of data catalogs,
such as government data portals.   DCAT is for catalogs of all kinds of data
(not just RDF data), but uses RDF to support easy aggregation of catalogs
and construction of services which can search across many unrelated
catalogs. [1]


- Data Cube is an RDF vocabulary for publishing multidimensional data,
particularly statistical data.  It is compatible with the cube model that
underlies SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange), widely-used ISO
standard.  The Data Cube Vocabulary brings essential SDMX elements to RDF,
providing a standard way for governments to publish statistical information
as Linked Data. [2]


We would very much appreciate your comments and feedback!


Please send them to the public mailing list public-gld-comments@w3.org by
the 8 April 2013.


Many thanks for your help!
