Hello,

We are using CSVW in the following contexts:

   1. Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic recommends CSVW as a
   way of adding a schema and RDF mappings to CSV files published as open data
   in the Czech Republic. It publishes code lists in this way (
   https://data.gov.cz/datasets?publisher=https%3A%2F%2Frpp-opendata.egon.gov.cz%2Fodrpp%2Fzdroj%2Forgán-veřejné-moci%2F00007064&keywords=codelist
   <https://data.gov.cz/datasets?publisher=https%3A%2F%2Frpp-opendata.egon.gov.cz%2Fodrpp%2Fzdroj%2Forg%C3%A1n-ve%C5%99ejn%C3%A9-moci%2F00007064&keywords=codelist>
   )
   2. at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic bachelor students are
   taught to use CSVW for schemas and RDF mappings in the Data Formats course (
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jmPhwbvpOY)
   3. CSVW default mapping is used in the LinkedPipes ETL tabular component
   (https://etl.linkedpipes.com/components/t-tabular) and uses in many CSV
   to RDF data transformation pipelines

It is true, however, that proper implementations are missing, with
https://github.com/ruby-rdf/rdf-tabular being the only usable tool for me
at the moment.

Best regards,

Jakub Klímek
