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.
