The core elements of government metadata in the Netherlands are linked to LOD value lists.
Nine core elements have been developed as a Dublin Core Application Profile:
? dcterms:identifier (Reference)
? dcterms:title (Title)
? dcterms:type (Informationtype)
? dcterms:language (Language)
? overheid:authority (Responsible)
? dcterms:creator (Maker)
? dcterms:modified (Datre modified)
? dcterms:temporal (Coverage in Time)
? dcterms:spatial (Location)
The OWMS standard representing these elements is complemented by lists of labels and identifiers published as Linked Open Data. The lists are available in HTML, RDF, N3 and XML.
? Government organizations (ministries, provinces, municipalities, water boards)
? Information types
