On 20 February 2024 from 10:00 until 12:00 CET the introductory webinar on the revision of GeoDCAT-AP was organised by the SEMIC Team.
GeoDCAT-AP is an extension of DCAT-AP for describing geospatial datasets. It provides an RDF syntax binding for the union of metadata elements defined in the core profile of ISO 19115:2003 and those defined in the framework of the INSPIRE Directive. The goal of this revision and accompanying series of webinars is to align the specification with DCAT-AP 3.0 and its annex, DCAT-AP for HVD, as well as to investigate its relationship and intersection with other semantic standards in order to achieve interoperability.
This first webinar was an introduction on GeoDCAT-AP and the ongoing and planned activities.
The following topics were discussed:
DCAT-AP 3 and GeoDCAT-AP
Datasets, Distributions and Data Services and their relationships
Relationship with INSPIRE, GeoDCAT (OGC) and ISO
Overview of SEMIC supporting tools for GeoDCAT-AP
Presentation of the work plan & timeline
The meeting minutes will be published once the webinar is over.
