Dear colleagues,

This is to let you know that I've just added two use cases:


1. GeoDCAT-AP

This use case is about work under-way on the definition of a
geospatial extension for DCAT-AP, a metadata interchange format being
used across European data portals.

The issues here concern not only the identification of "gaps" in
existing popular RDF vocabularies for specifying, e.g., coordinate
reference systems, spatial resolution, etc., but also the design
principles to be followed when developing domain-specific extensions
and their possible re-use in other domains - especially, to promote
interoperability of spatial information.

See: https://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/wiki/Working_Use_Cases#Geospatial_extensions_to_domain-independent_metadata_schemas_.28Best_Practice.29


2. Search engine optimisation techniques (SEO) for geospatial metadata

This use case is based on work presented at INSPIRE 2014 by Adam
Iwaniak (cc'ed), and it's about how to optimise geoportals to make
spatial data discoverable also through popular search engines.

Far from being a merely technical issue, this concerns more in general
the support to multiple (meta)data representations, depending on their
possible usage scenarios and the corresponding requirements.

See: https://www.w3.org/2015/spatial/wiki/Working_Use_Cases#Improving_discovery_of_spatial_data_on_the_Web_.28Best_Practice.29


Cheers,

Andrea
