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 http://purl.org/dc/terms/title, 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.
