DESCRIPTION

This paper describes the creation of linked data for cultural heritage domain, using semantic technologies. The Gothenburg city museum data are described according to an ontological model combining a series of upper-level and domain specific ontologies, such as PROTON and CIDOC-CRM, triplified and interlinked with data from LOD, e.g. DBpedia. The implementation is done as a reason-able view of the web of data and the data are loaded in OWLIM semantic repositoyr.

  • 5. Linked Open Data the Vision Tim Berners-Lee graphs published on the web and explorable across servers in a manner similar to the way the HTML web is navigated Design principles of Linked Open Data Use URIs to identify things. Use HTTP URIs so that these things can be referred to and looked up ("dereferenced") by people and user agents. Provide useful information about the thing when its URI is dereferenced, using standard formats such as RDF/XML. Include links to other, related URIs in the exposed data to improve discovery of other related information on the Web. Museum Reason-able View September 2011 #5

  • 8. Reason-able View Linked Open Data ManagementUsing linked data for data management is considered to have great potential forthe transformation of the web of data into a giant global graph (Heath, & Bizer,2011). Still, there are several challenges that have to be overcome to make thispossible, namely: LOD are hard to comprehend; Diversity comes at a price; LOD is unreliable; Dealing with data distributed on the web is slow; No consistency is guaranteed.Using reason-able views (Kiryakov et al., 2009a) a solution to LOD management.

  • 9. Reason-able View Linked Open Data Management An approach for reasoning with and managing linked data - an assembly of independent datasets, which can be used as a single body of knowledge with respect to reasoning and query evaluation - lowering the cost and the risks of using specific linked datasets for specific purposes The linkage between the data - at the schema level - at the instance level Accessible via - SPARQL endpoint - keywords Queries with predicates from different datasets Federated results from different datasets Museum Reason-able View September 2011 #9
