Make open data discoverable for search engines

Open data portals are a great way to discover datasets and present them to the public. But they lack interoperability and it’s thus even harder to search across them. Imagine if you’re looking for a dataset it’s just a simple “google search” away. Historically there are lots and lots of metadata standards. CKAN as the de-facto standard uses a model that is close to Dublin Core. It consists of 15 basic fields to describe a dataset and its related resources.
