OpenDocument Format and RDF

Filed under: Semantic Web,Work Related — Ivan Herman @ 14:04

I must admit this news slipped my attention. I also have not seen it on, say, the blogs aggregated on PlanetRDF (which does not necessarily means it was not there, just that I was careless!). Anyway, it is worth repeating it: the OASIS OpenDocument Technical Committee approved its enhanced metadata support format [pdf] for inclusion in ODF 1.2. What this means for the Semantic Web community is that OpenDocument will rely on RDF for its metadata support. Meaning that, for example, information on documents in ODF 1.2 can be easily integrated with a bunch of other data. Yay!

Luckily, I read Bruce D’Argus’ blog this morning. Worth reading it, it contains much more information…
