OWDER – Protocol for Web Description Resources


The Protocol for Web Description Resources (POWDER) allows metadata to be associated with groups of resources such as those found on a Web site. Its main ‘unit of information’ is the Description Resource (DR), one or more of which are contained in a POWDER document. Processing such a document yields RDF triples describing the resources that are within the scope of the DRs. POWDER documents are written in XML and have relatively loose semantics, however, a GRDDL transform, associated with the root namespace, renders the data in RDF/OWL with more formal semantics.
