For example, a catalog may offer choices of representations of a dataset's description that conform to different information models, perhaps [[VOID]],
[[VOCAB-DATA-CUBE]] and [[VOCAB-DCAT]]. Furthermore, the [[VOCAB-DCAT]] representation might conform to the
[[DCAT-AP]] profile, the [[GeoDCAT-AP]] profile and perhaps also an organisation-specific profile "MyOrgDCATProfile".
These narrower profiles further constrain various elements of the dataset's description beyond the more general specification or profile of which they are a profile.
+ A request for information about possible representations of this dataset's description may
