Development of DCMI Application Profile Model and Wiki tools for Application Profiles

DCMI has commissioned two work items that are related to the development of Application Profiles. The first is a specification of a DCMI Description Set Profile as part of a more formal DCMI Application Profile Model, drafted by Mikael Nilsson. Following from that work, Fredrik Enoksson is designing a Wiki format for Dublin Core™ Application Profiles which both renders the profile readably in HTML and is structured in such a way that it can be automatically converted by a script into an XML format. The work also includes designing and building a tool for transforming an Application Profile in the Wiki format into an XML representation of the profile. Results of this work are foreseen to be demonstrated at a plenary Architecture session at DC-2007 on Tuesday 28 August 2007.
