This section contains some initial work on developing some validation approaches for OIH. The focus initially is not on validating approaches with the full publishing guidance. Rather the focuses is on the the “info hub” as a search application and develops validation to support that.

Shape Validation

Initial approach:

  • Develop a base SHACL document that assess a data graph based on elements needed to support search


  • Leverage SHACL Playground

To support this will need an initial data graph to work with. The type is not important. All types will need to satisfy the search needs.

Examples of these needs include:

  • Have an @id

  • Have a name

  • Have a description

  • Have a Distribution and contentURL

  • Reference authority
