The Open PHACTS VoID Editor helps non-Semantic Web experts to create machine interpretable descriptions for their datasets. The web app guides the user, an expert in the domain of the data, through a series of questions to capture details of their dataset and then generates a VoID dataset description. The generated dataset description conforms to the Open PHACTS dataset description guidelines that ensure suitable provenance information is available about the dataset to enable its discovery and reuse.
