EDINA’s Paul Walk has recently co-edited a technical book on “Developing Metadata Application Profiles”
Along with Mariana Curado Malta (Polytechnic of Oporto, Portugal & Algoritmi Center, University of Minho, Portugal) and Ana Alice Baptista (Algoritmi Center, University of Minho, Portugal).
Paul and Ana are the outgoing and incoming chairs of the international Dublin Core Metadata Initiative governing board and executive
committee, see http://dublincore.org/about/oversight/
The context for the book is the prevalence of data science which has grown exponentially in recent years. The associated increases in data exchange have created the need for standards and formats on handling data from different sources.
Developing Metadata Application Profiles is an innovative reference source that discusses the latest trends and techniques for effectively managing and exchanging metadata. Including a range of perspectives on schemas and application profiles, such as interoperability, ontology-based design, and model-driven approaches, this book is ideally designed for researchers, academics, professionals, graduate students, and practitioners actively engaged in data science.
