Generate different outputs
SKOS Play can print your thesaurus in various ways :
Hierarchical trees (static or unfoldable)
Permuted / KWIC indexes
Generate PDF files
SKOS Play can also be used to produce printable PDFs from your thesaurus, with the same kind of outputs as the ones described above. PDFs are clickable so you can navigate the content of your thesaurus within the PDF.
Cool dataviz with D3JS
SKOS Play leverages D3js to display the hierarchy of the SKOS structure in nice ways :
SKOS Play also illustrates the generation of an autocomplete form filled with your thesaurus labels :
Works with OWL ontologies too !
By the way, SKOS Play also works with OWL or RDFS ontologies by converting them into SKOS, so you can print cool ontologies like CIDOC-CRM, schema.org, etc.
Create SKOS classifications from Excel / Google spreadsheets
The SKOS Play converter is a tool to easily maintain classifications in Excel and turn them into SKOS, following a simple file template, with specific column headers.
The converter is also integrated with Google Spreadsheets, so you can even maintain your classification collaboratively, and turn it directly into SKOS !
Validated SKOS data
SKOS Play includes a frontend for the qSKOS validator, hosted in a separate project : SKOS-testing-tool.
