Four Core Vocabularies 1 have been developed under ISA Action 1.1 so far:
- Core Person: captures the fundamental characteristics of a person, e.g. the name, the gender, the date of birth, the location.
- Registered organisation: captures the fundamental characteristics of a legal entity (e.g. its identifier, activities) which is created through a formal registration process, typically in a national or regional register.
- Core Location: captures the fundamental characteristics of a location, represented as an address, a geographic name or geometry.
- Core Public service: captures the fundamental characteristics of a service offered by public administration.
Public administrations can use and extend the Core Vocabularies in the following contexts:
- Development of new systems: the Core Vocabularies can be used as a default starting point for designing the conceptual and logical data models in newly developed information systems.
- Information exchange between systems: the Core Vocabularies can become the basis of a context-specific data model used to exchange data among existing information systems.
- Data integration: the Core Vocabularies can be used to integrate data that comes from disparate data sources and create a data mesh-up.
- Open data publishing: the Core Vocabularies can be used as the foundation of a common export format for data in base registries like cadastres, business registers and service portals.
