Hi Joachim,
good to see that you have come across the RDF version of CDISC standards
posted by the Semantic Technology, part of the FDA group for Emerging

CDISC standardize Data Elements (variables), Datasets (domains) and
Controlled Terminologies (i.e. text strings to be used in data elements as
so called submission values).

As said in the readme file "this project is to represent the existing CDISC
standards in RDF, not to remodel the standards."

The focus is on describing the Data Elements. And how Data Elements are
related to Datasets and how they may use Permissible Values (using parts of
the ISO11179 model as the metadata model schema).

While the W3C HCLS LLD work has a less granular focus: Descriptions of
Datasets, and not the included data elements.

CDISC is represented by Landen Bain (cc:ed) in this FDA/PhUSE project and
endorsed by Wayne Kubick, the CTO of CDISC. I hope the CDISC website will
be updated with more information about this project. Good timing as this
project will be presented at the annual CDISC Interchange conference next

The readme document do not have the correct address to Phuse's website, it
is http://www.phuse.eu/ (Thanks for the note, will be updated)

For more information about the FDA projects on the PhUSE wiki see

Kind Regards
Kerstin Forsberg
