Hi all,

We're pleased to see schema.org has adopted the Dataset extension into the 1.0a. We're mapping the microdata to our metadata and are a little confused about one point.

On the W3C wiki, there was a mapping from the draft Dataset to DCAT vocabulary. (http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/Datasets)

In that version, sdo:contentURL mapped to dcat:accessURL. That made sense to us. 

In the listing for http://schema.org/Dataset, there is no contentURL. We're wondering what to do with this. For us, this would the metadata field that is a URL link to downloadable dataset, residing elsewhere. Is this now simply sdo:url, a property of Thing? Or is this distribution, a property of Dataset? Or should we still be thinking about contentURl, a property of MediaObject?

Any help would be appreciated.
