Re: Google's dataset publication guidelines

Hi all,

in this context: FWIW, we publish (and regularly update) <> metadata for 250+ open data portals at: <>

DCAT can also be obtained via our API: <> 

hopefully useful (for the moment, since the API is still a bit beta, we'd appreciate if you'd directly contact us before attempting to crawl the API, we can also provide dumps)

best regards & feedback welcome,
