Tools & Standards

One of the key objectives of the Web Observatory will be to enable the discovery and sharing of data sets and tools with other Observatories and we are indebted to Prof Jim Hendler’s group at RPI for their work in developing a schema.org extension designed to enable this important feature.

The main wiki entry for the proposal is:

A paper introducing this proposal is available in our selection of Web Science papers
