Webinar: Me4MAP - A method for the development of metadata application profiles

Friday, April 21, 2017

A metadata application profile (MAP) is a construct that provides a semantic model for enhancing interoperability when publishing data to the Web of Data. When a community of practice agrees to follow a MAP's set of rules for publishing data as Linked Open Data, it makes it possible for such data to be processed automatically by software agents. Therefore, the existence of a method for MAP development is essential to providing developers with a common ground on which to work. The absence of such a method leads to a non-systematic set of MAP development activities that frequently results in MAPs of lesser quality. This Webinar with Mariana Curado Malta, Polythecnic of Oporto, Portugal, will present Me4MAP, a method for the development of metadata application profiles. The webinar will be presented twice, once in English and once in Portuguese. For more information about the webinar and to register, visit http://dublincore.org/resources/training/#2017Malta.
