Dear Webmaster,

This is a publication request for two linked documents. The first is a 
simple update:


is the latest version of "Data on the Web Best Practices Use Cases & 


the previous one being at



This document lists use cases, compiled by the Data on the Web Best 
Practices Working Group, that represent scenarios of how data is 
commonly published on the Web and how it is used. This document also 
provides a set of requirements derived from these use cases that will be 
used to guide the development of the set of Data on the Web Best 
Practices and the development of two new vocabularies: Quality and 
Granularity Description Vocabulary and Data Usage Description Vocabulary.

The document is in place and is, I believe, pubrules compliant.

Record of WG resolution is at

NB. This iteration marks a switch from WD to NOTE (this is a UCR, so not 
on the Rec Track). But I goofed... I created 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-dwbp-ucr-20150224/ which was a mistake. Can 
you please delete this? Thanks.

The WG has also resolved to publish the FPWD of its "Data on the Web 
Best Practices"


Ralph approved the short URL in a mail to you and me on 26 Jan.

The doc is installed and pubrules compliant at


This document provides best practices related to the publication and 
usage of data on the Web designed to help support a self-sustaining 
ecosystem. Data should be discoverable and understandable by humans and 
machines. Where data is used in some way, whether by the originator of 
the data or by an external party, such usage should also be discoverable 
and the efforts of the data publisher recognized. In short, following 
these best practices will facilitate interaction between publishers and 

I am not sure which category the UCR doc is in? But I'd like to create a 
new category of 'Data on the Web' into which this BP doc and the outputs 
of the Spatial Data on the Web WG will go in due course. Can the UCR doc 
be included in this new category too?

And before you ask, here's some blurb for the announcement:

The <a href="/2013/dwbp/">Data on the Web Best Practices Working 
Group</a> has today published the first public working draft of its 
primary output document. The WG is tackling the very broad topic of data 
publishing, covering government, cultural heritage and commercial data, 
open data, closed data, linked data &hellip; it's a very broad canvas. 
Consequently a number of issues remain very open and the working group 
members are keen to receive feedback so as to guide the work to 
completion. The aim is to offer advice that is helpful today and likely 
to remain helpful as technologies evolve. The first public working draft 
of the <a href="/TR/2015/WD-dwbp-20150224/">Data on the Web Best 
Practices</a> is complemented by a substantial update to the group's <a 
href="/TR/2015/NOTE-dwbp-ucr-20150224/">Use Cases and Requirements</a>. 
New use cases include NASA's <a 
href="/TR/2015/NOTE-dwbp-ucr-20150224/#UC-ASO">Airborne Snow 
Observatory</a> (which is also relevant to the new <a 
href="/2015/spatial/">Spatial Data on the Web Working Group</a>) and the 
<a href="/TR/2015/NOTE-dwbp-ucr-20150224/#UC-SharePSI">European 
Union-funded Share-PSI project</a>.

I know you'll let me know if there are any queries.
