Re: Query on ISO-Cat/DCR

Dear Arle,

I only remember we said that DCR could be a good candidate to attend the TC37 meeting, but I do not know if later you discussed a concrete proposal.

Subject: Query on ISO-Cat/DCR

Hi all,

In Dublin we discussed using the ISO Data Category Registry for some aspect of ITS 2.0 but I don't recall what it was. I also seem to recall someone saying that ISO-cat was a problem because it doesn't allow URI-based access. 

I can report that the latter is not only NOT an issue, but that the DCR uses persistent URIs that deliver an HTML representation of the category, so they are accessible through a simple web query. 

So now I just need some help recalling where we thought we might use them. Unfortunately I'm on a small mobile device at the moment where searching for the relevant content in the irc doesn't work well. Does anyone recall right off?  I'd like to discuss our needs tomorrow in the ISO TC37 meeting on the DCR since I can get immediate feedback from the development team here. It does seem already that they are keen to collaborate with us in general but specifics will help me get the right results.
