The DCMI Metadata Provenance Task Group  is collaborating with the W3C
Provenance Working Group  on a mapping from Dublin Core terms to the PROV
provenance ontology , currently a W3C Proposed Recommendation. More
precisely, the document describes a partial mapping from DCMI Metadata Terms
 to the PROV-O OWL2 ontology  -- a set of classes and properties
for representing and interchanging information about provenance. Numerous
in the DCMI vocabulary provide information about the provenance of a
Translating these terms into PROV relates this information explicitly to the
W3C provenance model.
The mapping is currently a W3C Working Draft. The final state of the
will be that of a W3C Note, to be published as part of a suite of documents
support of a W3C Recommendation for provenance interchange .
DCMI would like to point to the W3C Note as a DCMI Recommended Resource and
therefore encourages the Dublin Core community to provide feedback and take
part in the finalization of the mapping.
The deadline for all comments is 7 April 2013. We recommend that comments
provided directly to the public W3C list for comments:
[log in to unmask] , ideally with a Cc: to DCMI's dc-provenance
list . Comments sent only to the dc-provenance list will be summarized
the W3C list and addressed, and discussions on the W3C list will be
back on the dc-provenance list when appropriate.
