The sharing of comma-separated files is very common, and a common set of problems arise upon the receipt and processing of data within this format. The RDF vocabulary described in this document provides interpretation instructions to a tool that converts tabular based data into RDF appropriate for linked data publishing. Links to a page which describes a Java-based tool that follows the interpretation vocabulary described here and provides a set of shell script tools to facilitate automatic conversion.

- Knows methods for generating RDF data from tabular data in formats such as Comma-Separated Values (CSV).

- Uses available vocabularies for dataset description to support their discovery.
