DOPHEDA Working Documents

The Canadian Heritage Information Network is putting online its working documents regarding the Données Patrimoniales – Heritage Data (DOPHEDA) project in order to get comments and suggestions from its stakeholders while developing its environment based on Linked Open Data. Since these are working documents, many are accessible only in one of Canada’s two official languages.

CIDOC CRM French Translation Initiative
