RE: extension for (geo)sciences

Karen - is based on 
And in turn, the dataset/catalog parts of were based on DCAT 0.9. 
So this is no coincidence - see etc. 

The close relationship with was already mentioned and a partial mapping provided in the DCAT-rev draft 

Or perhaps I am missing your point? 

FWIW I tried mapping one of the examples that we've recently been working on into -
It is almost complete, though the `EntryPoint` model is a little different (more elaborate) than the proposed `dcat:DataService` modeling - see

I think I already contacted the (geo)science guys for feedback on our work, but I've cced them again here in case I missed it.

They appear to have directly borrowed from DCAT, using "data catalog"
and "distribution" as DCAT does. It definitely makes sense to ping this group for any comments on DCAT. Andrea, can you do that?
