The Dublin Core Metadata Initiative's Schema.org Alignment Task Group held its first teleconference on 12 December to discuss a proposed mapping of DCMI metadata terms to terms in the Schema.org vocabulary.
The teleconference report is available and highlights different potential uses for published mappings:
- as a social signal that different standards can work together,
- as a source of documentation for people who work with data,
- as a source of patterns for search-engine engineers, and
- as input into the further development of vocabularies and related applications.
