Open Data Consortium Proposes Geodata Portal Transaction Requirements
...Is it possible to encourage more public agencies to register their geodata in metadata catalogs? Can more public agencies be encouraged to make their data available through data portals?
Perhaps the answer would be yes if geodata portals could handle transactions that are more complex than simply publishing for anonymous Web-based distribution. Perhaps more local governments would make geodata available if an automated process could negotiate their particular data distribution requirements with each user that contacts them via a geodata portal."
Requirements definition enables the flexibility necessary to engage many more local agencies in using geodata portals to distribute data, while protecting their rights. Greater detail is in the Open Data Consortium specification paper at: http://www.opendataconsortium.org/documents/ODC3_geoDRM_GTApp_rqmts-1.pdf
