Last year, during the LSM in Geneva, Olivier Munier and Elie Sloim presented the opquast desktop extension which allows developpers to perform almost 500 test on web sites quality and accessibility. The open source opquast desktop extension allows web developpers to verify a web page validity and syntax correctness regarding the checklists edited by the Temesis company. We published an opendata checklist consisting of 72 good practices. Among those, some of them apply to metadata describing the content of the opendata content. The opquast extension would allow the automatic verification of those metadata in the web page giving access to the opendata resources and their syntaxic validity. This extension could also serve to verify the implementation of the DCAT application profile soon to be released by the European commission
