> Date: 14 March 2013 15:07:57 GMT

> Hi OKFN and CKAN list,
> We (the W3C Government Linked Data Working Group) have just put these vocabularies into Last Call, and would welcome feedback from you and your participants:
>  Organization Ontology (ORG)
>  Data Catalog (DCAT) vocabulary
>  Data Cube vocabulary
> - ORG describes a core ontology for organizational structures, aimed at supporting linked data publishing of organizational information across a number of domains. It is designed to allow domain-specific extensions to add classification of organizations and roles, as well as extensions to support neighbouring information such as organizational activities. [1]
> - Data Catalog (DCAT) is an RDF vocabulary for expressing the contents of data catalogs, such as government data portals.   DCAT is for catalogs of all kinds of data (not just RDF data), but uses RDF to support easy aggregation of catalogs and construction of services which can search across many unrelated catalogs. [2]
> - Data Cube is an RDF vocabulary for publishing multidimensional data, particularly statistical data.  It is compatible with the cube model that underlies SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata eXchange), widely-used ISO standard.  The Data Cube Vocabulary brings essential SDMX elements to RDF, providing a standard way for governments to publish statistical information as Linked Data. [3]
