Governments produce large amounts of valuable data, such as spreadsheets and maps, as part of daily operations and decision-making. This data can be useful to many citizens and organizations beyond the government, and it is ultimately the citizen who has paid for producing it. More and more governments make this data publicly available through data catalogs, such as data.gov, data.gov.uk, or statcentral.ie. This slide set introduces dcat, a unified format for publishing the metadata of such catalogs, that supports the querying, federation, consumption and archival of these valuable data assets.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
