Over deze norm
The present document gives guidance on how information should be structured and presented in Dublin Core Application Profiles. Principles and concepts underlying DCAPs as declarative metadata constructs are defined and explained. The guidelines do not mandate a particular document format for DCAPs. DCAPs may be presented as plain text files or as Web pages, word-processing files, PowerPoint, or indeed as ink on paper. By providing a consistent presentation structure for such documents, these guidelines aim at making it easier for people to understand what others are doing in their metadata. The guidelines mandate enough structure to ensure that DCAPs will be convertible as straightforwardly as possible into expressions that use schema languages, such as RDF, for automatic processing by machines. In this sense, a normalized documentational form for DCAPs is a first step towards the more ambitious and long-term goal of automating semantic interoperability across a broad diversity of information sources.
