A draft list from the LAWs Project of audience types (or 'profiles') suitable for defining the types of citizen to whom a service or local government resource is relevant. The list extends that given at http://www.govtalk.gov.uk/searchresult2.asp?docnum=680, with audience profiles identified while building the Local Government Category List and when defining profiles for Local Government Service List services. The list is proposed for consideration as a 'scheme' for populating the e-GMS 'audience' element and its 'mediator' refinement.
XSD and RDFS schemas are subject to modification following definition of standards by the e-Government Unit Metadata Technical Working Group and the W3C taxonomy group. In the event of changes, we shall endeavour to support the formats given as legacy formats.
LGAL version 0.02 was released on 31 March 2008:
This XML file is the official version. The file is still considered to be a draft because there is extensive discussion in the local government community about that and LAWs is eager to accommodate a wide ranger of requirements. It is likely that the format of lgal.xml will not be subject to much further revision.
The XML file can also be viewed in these human readable formats:
