DCMI's Vocabulary Management Tool published as an Open Source project

Friday, May 21, 2010

Documentation for DCMI Metadata Terms is currently published as a Web document and as an RDF schema to which term URIs, such as, are redirected. The Vocabulary Management Tool which is used to generate these documents has now been published as an open source project on the Web-based hosting service Github. DCMI would like to modify the system to generate the user-oriented Web document with an embedded RDF representation using a W3C standard, RDFa. Interested members of the open-source community are invited to adapt the tool for their vocabularies, help improve the code on Github, or discuss related issues on the mailing list of the DCMI Architecture Forum.
