Clarify target for dcat:landingPage

23/07/2015

The usage note is as follows: "This property refers to a web page that provides access to the Dataset, its Distributions and/or additional information." Cardinatlity is 0..1. The datasets published on the EU ODP site are not stored on the EU ODP servers, but on the data providers' servers. The EU ODP only publishes the (DCAT-AP) description of the dataset. Often data providers publish their datasets also on their own website. What is in this case the landing page?

Analysis: A clarification can be added if it is indeed agreed that this is what the property should link to.

Proposal: Add clarification “dcat:landingPage is intended to point to a landing page at the original data provider, not to a page on a site of a third party, such as an aggregator” in section 4.3.3.
