The Government Linked Data (GLD) WG requests transition of the RDF People Vocabulary.  The People Vocabulary emerged from the W3C Government Linked Data (GLD) Working Group.

Draft is at:

Publication Date:  16-February-2012

short name: http://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-people

Decision to request the transition:



This is the First Call Working Draft of the RDF People Vocabulary specification. 
This document defines a set of terms for describing people. It defines how to describe people's characteristics such as names or addresses and how to relate people to other things, for example to organizations or projects. For each term, guidance on the usage within a running example is provided. This document also defines mappings to widely used vocabularies to enable interoperability. 

This document is aimed at both publishers and consumers of Linked Data. We assume that the reader has a certain familiarity with RDF and RDF Schema as well as well-known vocabularies, such as FOAF or Dublin Core. The goal of the document is to specify an interoperable way to describe people and their relationships to other entities such as organisations  or projects. 

Not a delta specification.

W3C Government Linked Data Working Group
