I am often asked by people with ideas for extending or enhancing Schema.org how they go about it. These requests inevitably fall into two categories – either ‘How do I decide upon and organise my new types & properties and relate them to other vocabularies and ontology’ or ‘now I have my proposals, how do I test, share, and submit them to the Schema.org community?’
I touch on both of theses areas in a free webinar I recorded for DCMI/ASIS&T a couple of months ago. It is in the second in a two part series Schema.org in Two Parts: From Use to Extension . The first part covers the history of Schema.org and the development of extensions. That part is based up on my experiences applying and encouraging the use of Schema.org with bibliographic resources, including the set up and work of the Schema Bib Extend W3C Community Group – bibliographically focused but of interest to anyone looking to extend Schema.org.
The focus of this post is in answering the now I have my proposals, how do I test, share, and submit them to the Schema.org community?
