CKAN states that it is DCAT compliant, see http://ckan.org/open-standards/ (“CKAN includes native exporting of records in DCAT format, and can harvest DCAT records from other catalogues.”).
Can you provide more information about this feature? As far as we know at the Flemish Government, we need to use an extension like ckanext-DCAT to use this feature. We also do not understand why the European Data portal has created its own extension ckanext-edp.
So, our questions are:
- will / does CKAN offer native support for DCAT-AP 1.1 import and export?
If so, can you please forward the link to the relevant documentation?
if not, what is your advise in terms of extensions? ckanext-DCAT or ckanext-edp or another?
- What is the plan going forward with CKAN to support DCAT? Is this on the roadmap?
