IM8 - Clarify use of format to describe data in Distribution

10/03/2015

Description

From: http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/mailman/archives/dcat_application_profile/2015-March/000128.html

The proper use of format is not clearly defined.

 

Proposed solution

Clarify that the format is to describe the individual data in a distribution, not the container or the protocol (e.g. for a zip of xml files the format is text/xml, not application/zip). If an API is used, the message format should be described, typically application/json or text/xml.
