Re: extension for (geo)sciences

Thank you for connecting the dots. Can you point us at the specific material you are looking for feedback on? Discovering the overlaps and reducing the duplication of effort is exactly where the (soon to be renamed effort is at.

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

    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?
