Dear all,

In one of my previous messages [1], I mentioned an activity under-way
to develop a geospatial extension to DCAT-AP, a metadata interchange
format being used across European data portals.

The GeoDCAT-AP WG is going to start their activity shortly, and I
would like to extend the invitation to join to any of you who are

More details on the planned work and the timing are available at


The first telecon is planned within the end of this month - a doodle
poll has been set up to decide the date:


My apologies for the short notice, but there has been some delay in
the preparatory phase, and we have a tight schedule. The plan is to
deliver the final GeoDCAT-AP spec within June 2015. We are going to
have a total of 4 telecons, corresponding to each of the phases of the
project (which include a public review period). Most part of the work
will be done through the Joinup issue tracker and on the GeoDCAT-AP
mailing list.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any questions and comments.
