A metadata application profile (MAP) is a construct that provides a
semantic model for enhancing interoperability when publishing to the Web of
Data. With a MAP, each property is defined as an RDF vocabulary term with
the definition of domain, range, and cardinality. According to the DCMI
document "Interoperability Levels for Dublin Core Metadata", a MAP is a
construct that enhances semantic interoperability. Therefore, when a
community of practice agrees to follow a MAP's set of rules for publishing
data as Linked Open Data, it makes it possible for such data published the
LOD cloud to be processed automatically by software agents.

A MAP is therefore a construct of great importance and the existence of a
method for its development is essential to give MAP developers a common
ground on which to work. The absence of such a method leads to a
non-systematic set of MAP development activities that might result in MAPs
with less quality.

This Webinar will present Me4MAP, a method for the development of metadata
application profiles. Me4MAP was defined in the context of a PhD and is
still now being tested and refined. It is a method that is approached
through a software engineering perspective. With Me4MAP, we do not propose
a universal solution; rather, our intention is to establish a starting
point for the study and design of methods for the development of MAPs.


Mariana Curado Malta is an Associate Professor at Polythecnic of Oporto,
Portugal and a researcher in CEOS.PP, Portugal. Currently, she is on leave
in the Laboratorio de Inovación en Humanidades Digitales in the Universidad
Nacional de Educación a Distancia in Madrid, Spain. Her research work is
framed in a project (POSTDATA), financed by a European Research Council
Starting Grant that aims to publish poetry data (and related data) as
Linked Open Data. In POSTDATA she is responsible for the semantic
modelling. Her research interests are related to methods for the
development of metadata application profiles and the quality of MAPs in
particular and metadata in general. She is the co-author of Me4MAP, a
method for the development of metadata application profiles. Mariana Curado
Malta has a PhD in Technologies and Information Systems from University of
Minho, Portugal. She is the author of several research papers, book
chapters, and recently co-edited the book “Developing metadata application
profiles” published by IGI Global.
