News about the new metadata schema- We are working intensively on the new metadata schema (DCAT) which will ensure a great deal of interoperability for our users. As a consequence every resource will constitute its own dataset thus increasing search engine exposure of your resources. All resources and datapackages will be transformed to the new schema by the CCCA Datacentre Team thus you are able to benefit from our improvements without any effort.

We hope you'll hear from us soon with the newly implemented metadata schema!

DCAT-AP will be implemented!!!! – This is an application profile for data sharing in Europe. It enhances the semantic interoperability between different data portals and their services and implicates the availability of the CCCA Data Server contents in standardised RDF (Resource Description Framework) format. More details next year.

The CCCA Data Centre Team wishes you a great Christmas and New Year break!
