Fresnel - Display Vocabulary for RDF(About) Presenting Semantic Web content in a human-readable way consists in addressing two issues: specifying what information contained in an RDF graph should be presented and how this information should be presented. We developed Fresnel as a browser-independent vocabulary of core RDF display concepts applicable across different representation paradigms and output formats.
DEMO of the STITCH project ("Semantic Interoperability To access Cultural Heritage")(About) The STITCH DEMO webserver demonstrates the added value of semantical integration of multiple collections.
The collections that are linked by the prototype RDF Multi-Faceted-Search browser are the Rijksmuseum Masterpieces Collection (ARIA) and the Medieval Illuminated Manuscripts at the National Library of the Netherlands
SKOS is used to enable mixing/merging of separate vocabularies:
Cultural-heritage collections are typically indexed with metadata derived from a range of different vocabularies, such as AAT, Iconclass and in-house standards. This presents a problem when one wants to use multiple collections in an interoperable way. In general, it is unrealistic to assume unification of vocabularies. Vocabularies have been developed in many sub-domains, each with their own emphasis and scope. Still, there is significant overlap between the vocabularies used for indexing. The prime research objective of this subproject is to develop theory, methods and tools for allowing metadata interoperability through semantic links between the vocabularies.
Wilbur-and-O: OINK(About) "RDF browser", built using Wilbur. I am tired of looking RDF data in the RDF/XML (or any other syntactic) form. It seems that an RDF graph can easily be rendered as hypertext, and browsing is a very intuitive way to navigate data. Loading multiple RDF documents into Wilbur's triple-store and viewing them all together offers a simple way to integrate data, ad hoc. I've dubbed this piece of software "OINK" for "Open Integration of Networked Knowledge" (really).
