DDI 4 Core - Development of a Robust and Sustainable Model

Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz Center for Informatics, Wadern, Germany, September 30 - October 4, 2019


The overall goal of the workshop is to finalize DDI 4 Core as a consistent specification. It will include not only the syntax representations in XML (for preservation and exchange) and RDF (for discovery in the Linked Data Web), but will also deliver the UML from which they are derived from in the form of Canonical XMI, a portable, tool-independent expression of the model.

The document on “DDI 4 Core Overview and Scope” describes purpose, goals, and features of DDI 4 Core.

  • Develop the overview and Upper Model
  • Update and present the foundational portions of the Prototype needed for DDI 4 Core (concepts, categories, classifications, variables, etc.)
  • Update and present the patterns used in MRT DDI 4 Core
  • Document the Process model
  • Document the Data Description model
  • Document exemplary Functional Views
  • Document Approach to Standards Alignment using the DDI 4 Core (GSIM, DCAT, GSBPM, PROV-O, other DDI versions, etc.)
  • Finalize the Canonical XMI version of the model, and integrate with other relevant production systems (binding production, modeling tools)
  • Develop and document the XML Schema bindings for all portion of the model covered by DDI 4 Core
  • Develop and document an experimental OWL/RDF syntax binding, pending resolution of the approach to including other relevant vocabularies
