P14 Drone Data Ontology Pre-event?

Hi all

In the name of cross-RDA collaboration (and because I need your expertise) I'm hoping you'll find this event interesting and appealing enough to join us, but even if not, your students might be interested and/or see this as a way to partialy fund attending P14

The drone data IG is hosting a pre-event hackathon working on the LANDRS (Linked And Networked DRoneS) project where amoungst other things we're continuing work on creating an ontology and building an OpenAPI sepecification for creating a Restful API for building linked data native drone data applications.

Big Meeting at RDA tomorrow

Hi everyone,
Tomorrow the RDA Vocabulary and Semantic Services Interest Group will meet from 9:00 to 10:30 AM CET (GMT+1, I believe), in B95 (second floor, between the 2 straight staircases).
We co-chairs and supporters have been scrambling to get ready for the call, as our chair-among-co-chairs, Simon Cox, was unable to travel at the last minute. I am sending this email both as an update and a last reminder.

INSPIRE Best Practices / Guidelines for registers & register federation

Dear colleagues,

I just came across this group and, reading the charter proposal, I think the best practices and guidelines developed for INSPIRE (the Infrastructure for Spatial Information in Europe) for registers (= vocabularies), registries (= vocabulary services) and register federation could be useful: https://inspire.ec.europa.eu/id/document/tg/registers-and-register-feder...

methods for auto-generating structured metadata

Hi Kaylin,
The Metadata Enhancement Task Force, a sub-committee of the Research
Data Alliance Data Discovery Paradigms Interest Group, is investigating
methods for auto-generating structured metadata. Enhancing the metadata
records associated with research data improves search and supports
automation services such as data processing workflows.
The Task Force is currently developing a survey to collect information
on methods and tools for auto-generating metadata, including related

Re: [rda-metadata-ig][domain-repositories-ig][vocabulary_services] methods for auto-generating structured metadata

I refer the group to the related work of the W3C Data Exchange Working
Group. [1] I think the move towards being able to explicitly define
profiles of such metadata provides useful opportunities to control the
quality and interoperability of such metadata.
This group has a Use Case and Requirements document First Public Working
Draft out for comment. Please engage :-)
