Resource Links for a Cultural Heritage Dataset: Music and Vase-Painting

Spring 2017 sessions of the Semantic Web Working Group

For background, see this page from our website. It provides a description of the fields in the source data table.

Data model

Here's the preliminary data model that we are working with:

Controlled Vocabularies and SKOS

PowerPoint from March 13

Running SPARQL queries on the vase dataset and the scene controlled vocabulary; named graphs

PowerPoint from March 27

Ways to discover data by following your nose, or acquiring metadata about an entire dataset

PowerPoint from April 3

Building web apps using RDF data

PowerPoint from April 10

vocabularies

CIDOC CRM

Note: there seems to be two alternate realities for the CDOC-CRM website. One is based on http://www.cidoc-crm.org and the other is based on http://cidoc-crm.org. The "www" version (labeled "trial version") has the hyperlinked term definitions.

Introduction

Graphical representation of class hierarchy

Hyperlinked list of classes and properties (most recent published version 6.2.1)

Most recent draft (6.2.1) encoded in RDFS (RDF/XML serialization) Note that the xml:base declaration indicates the URI for the ontology: http://www.cidoc-crm.org/cidoc-crm/, which I've been representing with the CURIE crm: .

PDF version of most recent published draft (6.2.1) This has the most exhaustive descriptions of the terms.

Dublin Core

DCMI Metadata terms index

Notes:

  • terms in the legacy dc: namespace ( http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/) may all be appropriately used with literal values. For example: dc:creator="Steve Baskauf"
  • terms in the dcterms: namespace should be used with literal or non-literal (URI or blank node) values depending on their range declarations. For example dcterms:creator=http://orcid.org/0000-0003-4365-3135
  • Dublin Core classes fall into two namespaces. Some are in the dcterms: namespace (e.g. dcterms:PhysicalResource) but some are in the dctype: (http://purl.org/dc/dcmitype/) namespace (e.g. dctype:PhysicalObject), so check carefully before using.

Getty Arts and Architecture Thesaurus

Notes:

  • The aat: namespace is http://vocab.getty.edu/aat/
  • The terms are SKOS concepts, so some thought should be put into how to link to them. The standard way seems to be via dcterms:subject, although there are some other creative uses (misuses?) found in various implementations.
  • Example: aat:300379340 (grave vases)

Examples to look at

Kerameikos.org

Kerameikos.org (http://kerameikos.org/) is a collaborative LOD project for defining intellectual concepts of pottery, specifically Greek black- and red-figure pottery. They use CIDOC CRM, some terms they minted, plus other well-known vocabularies.
