Subject: Last call: ORG, DCAT and Data Cube ontologies - W3C Gov Linked 
Data WG
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]


** Please send comments to the public mailing list 
public-gld-comments@w3.org by 8 April 2013. **


Many thanks for your help!

Cheers,

   Hadley
