Application profiles 

An application profile (AP) describes how a standard is to be applied in a particular domain or application. Standards typically do not contain constraints such as cardinality; these constraints are defined in the application profile. An application profile only applies to a specified domain. For example: The DCAT-AP is an application profile that specifies how the DCAT standard is to be used in the context of European data portals. An application profile must be accompanied with explanatory documentation.

Available application profiles:

DCAT Application profile for data portals in Europe (DCAT-AP)

DCAT Application Profile for EU Open Data Portal (DCAT-AP-OP) (Documentation)

SKOS-XL shape definition (Documentation)

General EuVoc shape definition (Documentation)
