Since 2009 the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen offers a web-based open source reference implementation of the ISO DCR (Data Category Registry, ISO 12620:2009), which is called ISOcat (“Data Category Registry for ISO TC 37”). ISOcat describes the data model and procedures for DCR. The talk presents the currently stage of the development and the status of ISOcat, and demonstrates - how ISOcat can be used for creating specifications of data category and management of a DRS. The talk also presents the plan for future development finally it give a view, what is planned to develop further.
