Naming Authorities

SPASE maintains a list of naming authorities who use the "spase" scheme in resource IDs. A SPASE Resource ID is a URI and has the general form of

spase://authority/path
To ensure global uniqueness of SPASE Resource IDs a naming authority must resource a unique name with the SPASE group. To become a naming authority and register your naming authority name with SPASE contact Todd King (tking@igpp.ucla.edu)
