Talk:RDF metadata

Hello,

could you please give me a pointer to the current status of the key:value extension. I am interessted especially in geo/foaf RDF data, to "emulate" the stuff openguides.org does, or to link to FOAF files.

DC:date - of article, or of subject ?[edit]

Many articles are about events at a certain place and date. For http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_hastings, it is reasonably clear that a DC:box describes the location of the battle.

But what about DC:date? How do you make it clear that 1066 is the date of the battle, not of the Wiki article? Using different URIs for the article itself, and its subject? Something like battle-of-hastings.rdf ?

As I understand it, the dublin core metadata always describes documents or other web resources, not the subjects they are about. Since the battle of hasting itself is not an online resource, or any kind of document, other metadata than the dublin core should be used to describe it. Just as you stated, it is also a good idea to use different URIs for the article and its subject. Benedikt

Needs to be updated[edit]

http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmes-xml/ is a superseded recommendation. It has been replaced by http://dublincore.org/documents/dc-rdf/. 203.7.140.3 06:31, 14 September 2009 (UTC)
