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 en-sure suitable provenance information is available about the dataset to enable its discovery and reuse.
