Standards are a key part of what this working group is about. This page links to information about standards

  • in existence before,
  • created by,
  • related to, and
  • used by

Standards are distinct from Data Resources. Standards specify the syntax and semantics of data exchange. Data Resources provide the data in a data exchange.

The Database Interop Hackathon's deliverables are producers and consumers for Data Resources that use these new standards.

Earlier Standards
