(As introduced in my C4L2019 lightening talk - pls repost as appropriate)
Are you your organization's "metadata expert"? Have you ever had to
create a metadata schema, or fiddle with one? Do you wish you had better
tools for all of this?
DCMI's new Application Profiles Interest Group (DCAP-IG)  wants to
make it easier for content experts without programming experience to
create and test machine-actionable application profiles for their metadata.
To enable this, we need a common language -- a core vocabulary -- for
the basic components of an application profile and commonly used
This vocabulary can serve as the target for the development of a range
of authoring options, from simple spreadsheet templates to automated
scripts in more complex and expressive programming and constraint languages.
Starting with a preliminary draft vocabulary , based on prior DCMI
work , we are forming working groups to define requirements and scope
the needs space, complete the core vocabulary, consider implementation
workflows, and post reusable snippets on the Web .
Please bring your perspective to the new DCAP-IG so that we can create
something broadly useful, extensible, and representative of current
thinking in the metadata community. Join now!
