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.
Here's the preliminary data model that we are working with:
Controlled Vocabularies and SKOS
Running SPARQL queries on the vase dataset and the scene controlled vocabulary; named graphs
Ways to discover data by following your nose, or acquiring metadata about an entire dataset
Building web apps using RDF data
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.
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.
- 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.

- 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 (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.
Here's one of the examples turned into Turtle and cleaned up:
