AGIFT / COFOG-A Linkset
This code repository contains a Linkset - a specialised Dataset linking objects in two other Datasets.
AGIFT, "Australian Governments' Interactive Functions Thesaurus", from the National Archives of Australia (NAA), is a "three-level hierarchical thesaurus that describes the business functions carried out across Commonwealth, state and local governments in Australia".
The COFOG-A is an Australian version of the UN's Statistical office's COFOG, "Classification of the Functions of Government", issued by the from the Australian Bureau of Statistics in the Australian System of Government Finance Statistics: Concepts, Sources and Methods which is represented as a SKOS vocabulary online at http://linked.data.gov.au/def/cofog-a.
This Linkset uses only SKOS Mapping Properties to map between AGIFT & COFOG-A. Only the following properties are used:
See example-data-unreified.ttl for 5 simple examples from the Linkset or example-data.ttl for the same 5 examples presented in reified form, that is with per-link metadata, such as time of creation and method used.
This repository contains the following files and folders:
- README.md - this file
- imports/ - background information: the AGIFT & COFOG-A vocabularies as RDF (turtle) files
- data.ttl - this Linkset's links as an RDF (turtle) file
- header.ttl - this Linkset’s data.ttl header information, stored separately for ease of access
- example-data.ttl - 5 Statements from the Linkset for ease of access, in RDF (turtle) format, as per the main data file but none of the whole-of-Linkset information
- example-data-unreified.ttl - 5 Statements from the Linkset but flattened, 'unreified', for even easier use
- methods/ - a folder containing the notes, scripts (Python) and interim data used to create this Linkset
