-    <p>DCAT is an RDF vocabulary designed to facilitate interoperability between data catalogues published on the Web. DCAT emerged from the W3C <a href="http://www.w3.org/egov/">eGov</a> Interest Group and W3C <a href="http://www.w3.org/2011/gld/">Government Linked Data</a> (GLD) Working Group but can be used for any entity publishing catalogues of datasets.</p>

     <p>DCAT was conceived with the following benefits in mind:
 <ul>
-<li>Embedded metadata in catalogue web pages increases data "findability, enables decentralised publishing of catalogues, and makes federated search</li>
-<li>Provides a basis for one-click download and installation of data packages</li>
-<li>Aggregated DCAT metadata serves as manifest file to faciliate digital preservation</li>
-<li>A uniform metadata model enables applications to be built once and work with multiple catalogues</li>

 <p>This document does not prescribe any particular method of deploying data expressed in DCAT. DCAT is applicable in many contexts including RDF accessible via SPARQL endpoints, embedded in HTML pages as RDFa, or serialized as e.g. RDF/XML or Turtle. The examples in this document use Turtle simply because of Turtle's readability.</p>
