CSV on the Web Working Group: 3 Notes Published

   25 February 2016

   The CSV on the Web Working Group has published 3 Group Notes:

     * CSV on the Web: Use Cases and Requirements: A large percentage
       of the data published on the Web is tabular data, commonly
       published as comma separated values (CSV) files. The CSV on
       the Web Working Group aim is to specify technologies that
       provide greater interoperability for data dependent
       applications on the Web when working with tabular datasets
       comprising single or multiple files using CSV, or similar,
       format. This document lists the use cases compiled by the
       Working Group that are considered representative of how
       tabular data is commonly used within data dependent
     * Embedding Tabular Metadata in HTML: The Model for Tabular Data
       and Metadata on the Web describes mechanisms for extracting
       metadata from CSV documents starting with either a tabular
       data file, or a metadata description. In the case of starting
       with a CSV document, a procedure is followed to locate
       metadata describing that CSV. Alternatively, processing may
       begin with a metadata file directly, which references the
       tabular data file(s). However, in some cases, it is preferred
       to publish datasets using HTML rather than starting with
       either CSV or metadata files.
     * CSV on the Web: A Primer: CSV is one of the most popular
       formats for publishing data on the web. It is concise, easy to
       understand by both humans and computers, and aligns nicely to
       the tabular nature of most data. The CSV on the Web Working
       Group has developed standard ways to express useful metadata
       about CSV files and other kinds of tabular data. This primer
       takes you through the ways in which these standards work
