  13. 13. The DCAT Application Profile for data portals in Europe A common vocabulary for describing datasets hosted in data portals in Europe, based on the Data Catalogue vocabulary (DCAT). Defines: • Mandatory, recommended and optional classes and properties • A set of controlled vocabularies, such as the File types and Countries Named Authority Lists, and Eurovoc for defining the theme of datasets. DCAT became a W3C Recommendation in January 2014. See also: DCAT-AP specification: https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/asset/dcat_application_profile/description https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/community/ods/document/tm15-promotingreuse-open-government-data-through-open-data-interoperability- OPEN DATASUPPORT Slide 13
  14. 14.

  20. 20. Definition of high-value datasets Publisher’s viewpoint. A public sector publisher may publish a dataset because of: • It contributes to transparency (G8 Open Data Charter) • Its publication is subject to a legal obligation • It directly or indirectly relates to their public task • It realises a cost reduction • The type and size of its target audience Reuser’s viewpoint.
