Across the European Union, member states are setting up official data
catalogues to facilitate access to public sector information. The
metadata of these portals should be interoperable so that they can be
easily accessed and accurately described. To that end, the W3C
Government Linked Data Working Group has developed DCAT (Data Catalog
Vocabulary), an RDF vocabulary for describing the metadata for data
catalogs. Several European data catalogs have adapted DCAT, but there
are some inconsistencies in its use. The next steps are to provide
multilingual support and make adaptations for cultural divergences.
Doing so will ensure a wider adoption of the vocabulary and improve
the interoperability of the metadata.

Topic Report of the month
Impact of Standards in European Open Data Catalogues. A Multilingual
perspective of DCAT
Authors: Elena Montiel-Ponsoda, Boris Villazón-Terrazas
Several countries from around the world are currently establishing,
open data platforms. Within the European Union, member states are
setting up official data catalogues as entry points to simplify public
access to PSI (Public Sector Information) of the country.
In this context it is important to describe the metadata of these data
portals, i.e., data catalogs and allow the interoperability among
those. To tackle these issues, the Government Linked Data Working
Group is developing DCAT (Data Catalogue Vocabulary), an RDF
vocabulary for describing the metadata of data catalogs. This topic
report describes the advantages of having a standard for data
catalogues and analyses the multilingual perspective of DCAT.
