The FOAF Project

Friend of a Friend (FOAF) is a widely-used vocabulary of terms related to the description of people. Since 2011, DCMI has maintained a "good neighbour" agreement with the FOAF Project. The agreement is monitored by a DCMI FOAF Cooperation Task Group, which posts annual reports to the community about the status of specific measures undertaken in cooperation between DCMI and the FOAF Project to ensure the long-term availability of the FOAF namespace.
