Publishing schema.org Dataset: Lessons Learned and Paths Forward

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Progress surrounding the schema.org type Dataset have made it an attractive way for repositories to expose dataset metadata to search engines. The NSF EarthCube initiative funded a short-term project, P418, to explore what could be achieved if repositories could adopt schema.org as a mechanism for self-publishing information using a common schema. As part of this project a number of repositories volunteered to try publishing schema.org by embedding it in their websites.

In this session, we will:
introduce the P418 project goals and the philosophy of behind using schema.org, (15min)
and then explore some real-word schema.org publishing stories to: (30min)
hear about the various techniques used and challenges encountered for embedding the schema.org markup in web pages,
understand how well schema.org covers a repository’s own metadata model,
discuss where schema.org needs extensions and how the geoscience community can collectively move forward to improving the quality of the markup.
