Historically, URIs were mostly seen as simply the way you accessed Web pages. These pages were hand-authored, relatively stable and simply shipped out on demand. More and more often that is no longer the case; in at least three different ways:
pynappl includes a simple command-line utility named tshell that allows the user to manually enter and execute commands against the Talis Platform. This document provides a brief introduction on how to use the tshell program.
Freaky. Look under Examples and try Einstein and Godel. "RelFinder is a tool based on Adobe Flex that automatically reveals relationships within a set of known objects via arbitrary SPARQL endpoints and displays them as graph visualization. The relationships are found by an algorithm that can be applied to large RDF knowledge bases, such as DBpedia or the whole LOD-Cloud. Since the graph that visualizes the relationships can still become large, we added interactive features and filtering options to the user interface that enable a reduction of displayed nodes and facilitate understanding."
This is the fifth part in this series about creating linked data. I’ve talked previously about analysis and modelling, defining URIs, defining concept schemes and defining a vocabulary. In this instalment I’ll talk about the finishing touches that can make linked data easier to browse, query, locate and trust.
This page provides quick links for the Registered RDA Element Sets and Value Vocabularies. Each set of elements or vocabulary concepts has a link to the general description as well as a link to a list of elements or concepts.
"The Data Browser Extension provides a table-based display for RDF data on the Semantic Web. Using AJAX code from the Tabulator Semantic Web Browser, the Data Browser Extension makes RDF data readable to the average person and shows how data are linked together across different sites. Queries can be generated for display in tables, calendars, maps, and timelines."
"Building on the success of last year's LDOW workshop at WWW2008 in Beijing, the LDOW2009 workshop aims to provide a forum for presenting the latest research on Linked Data and drive forward the research agenda in this area. While last year's workshop focused on the publication of Linked Data, this year's workshop will focus on Linked Data application architectures, linking algorithms and Web data fusion."
"The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a language for representing information about resources in the World Wide Web. This Primer is designed to provide the reader with the basic knowledge required to effectively use RDF. It introduces the basic concepts of RDF and describes its XML syntax. It describes how to define RDF vocabularies using the RDF Vocabulary Description Language, and gives an overview of some deployed RDF applications. It also describes the content and purpose of other RDF specification documents."
"The SIOC initiative (Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities) aims to enable the integration of online community information. SIOC provides a Semantic Web ontology for representing rich data from the Social Web in RDF. It has recently achieved significant adoption through its usage in a variety of commercial and open-source software applications, and is commonly used in conjunction with the FOAF vocabulary for expressing personal profile and social networking information. By becoming a standard way for expressing user-generated content from such sites, SIOC enables new kinds of usage scenarios for online community site data, and allows innovative semantic applications to be built on top of the existing Social Web. The SIOC ontology was recently published as a W3C Member Submission, which was submitted by 16 organisations."
"The project's major objective is enriching the toolkit used for the assessment of the impact of scholarly communication items, and hence of scholars, with metrics that derive from usage data. The project has created a semantic model of the scholarly communication process, and an associated large-scale semantic store"
"Imagine the sensory overload of a walk in the park. Every path shimmers with the flow of humanity. Every person drips with the scent of information: experience, opinion, karma, contacts. Every tree has a story: taxonomies and ontologies form bright lattices of logic. Desire lines flicker with unthinkable complexity in this consensual hallucination of space and non-space, a delicious yet overwhelming sociosemantic experience."
