Bioimages metadata

This repository contains the underlying metadata upon which the Bioimages image database and website are built.

These metadata are viewable by humans at http://bioimages.vanderbilt.edu/

Machines can start at http://bioimages.vanderbilt.edu/index.rdf and follow their noses to scrape the site as RDF/XML. The raw triples can be obtained from the files in this zip archive. The triples can be queried at the endpoint http://rdf.library.vanderbilt.edu/sparql.

All metadata are freely available under Creative Commons CC0, so go for it. Since I don't believe that such data can be copyrighted anyway, this designation is probably superfluous, but I'm stating it anyway for clarity. The images in the Bioimages collection are copyrighted by their owners. See the metadata for the images for license information.

The XQuery queries that generate the site are here.
