We are happy to announce as follows:
REEEP​ ​[​1]​ and CTCN​ ​[2] have recently launched Climate Tagger, a new tool to automatically scan, label, sort and catalogue datasets and document collections. 
For the Open Data and Linked Open Data communities (beside others), a Climate Tagger plugin for CKAN​ ​has been published​ together with a Drupal Module. The CKAN plugin was developed by NREL​ ​[​3] and the Drupal version by SWC [4] in cooperation with CTCN’s support, harnessing the same taxonomy and expert vetted thesaurus behind the Climate Tagger, helping connect open data to climate compatible content through the simultaneous use of these tools. The whole system is based on SWCs PoolParty Semantic Suite [5].

Tag CKAN datasets with target audience experience level Tag #CKAN @okfn #opendata sets with “experience level” & show who they’re aimed at via @adrianshort "Public datastores could tag datasets with an “experience level” to show who they’re aimed at. Find me all the spending data suitable for power users…" Adrian Short "There are five types of potential users for open data and data-driven apps:
  • data experts and computer scientists who can use semantic web
  • technologies; software developers who can use XML, JSON, etc.;
  • power users who can use CSV, spreadsheets, RSS, KML/Google Earth, perhaps Yahoo Pipes;
  • general users who can use a web browser;
  • offliners who need printed materials, ambient displays, public screens etc."
