Semantic Web Technologies


In this section we want to collect technologies and applications that use ontologies. These are primarily semantic web technologies using RDF or OWL as formal representation of ontologies but there are also applications that use traditional relational database technologies that make use of ontologies as data schema.

    The Rock-Art Database (RADB) is a non-for profit online project supported by PERAHU, Griffith University in Australia. It seeks to build a centralized global rock-art heritage hub to improve theory and practice in the digital curation of rock-art data. Through the use of new technologies the database explores new ways to look at rock-art information and explores the potential within its digital curation.
    The system can be accessed on the World Wide Web at http://www.rockartdatabase.com and on GitHub at https://github.com/rhaubt/Rock-Art-Database-RADB-/wiki.
    The project is particularly interested:

    1) radical collaboration for both, heritage data collection and technical system development.
    2)
    rock-art specific ontology using an Open Source CMS, Rock-Art Glossary and Triplify for CIDOC CRM mapping processes.
    3)
    data visualisation in both, rich-media formats including but not limited to text, 2D and 3D and semantic data visualisation using WebVowl.

  • A RADICAL COLLABORATIVE APPROACH: DEVELOPING A MODEL FOR LEARNING THEORY, HUMAN-BASED COMPUTATION AND PARTICIPANT MOTIVATION IN A ROCK-ART HERITAGE APPLICATION

    Keywords: rock art, cultural heritage, collaboration, human-based computation, crowd sourcing

    This paper explores a Radical Collaborative Approach in the global and centralized Rock-Art Database project to find new ways to look at rock-art by making information more accessible and more visible through public contributions. It looks at rock-art through the Key Performance Indicator (KPI), identified with the latest Australian State of the Environment Reports to help develop a better understanding of rock-art within a broader Cultural and Indigenous Heritage context. Using a practice-led approach the project develops a conceptual collaborative model that is deployed within the RADB Management System. Exploring learning theory, human-based computation and participant motivation the paper develops a procedure for deploying collaborative functions within the interface design of the RADB Management System. The paper presents the results of the collaborative model implementation and discusses considerations for the next iteration of the RADB Universe within an Agile Development Approach.

    Keywords: Scientific Communication Infrastructure, Semantic Web Technologies, Triple Store

    The WissKI Project created open source software to implement a Scientific Communication Infrastructure based on formal ontologies. It uses Semantic Web Technologies like the Sesame triple store on the back end and a custumizable Content Management System (Drupal) as front end for data entry and data retrieval.

  • Karma - information integration tool
    Information Integration Research Group - University of Southern California

    Link: http://usc-isi-i2.github.io

    Keywords: Ontology, RDF, JSON-LD, Information Integration Tool

    Karma is an information integration tool that enables users to quickly and easily integrate data from a variety of data sources including databases, spreadsheets, delimited text files, XML, JSON, KML and Web APIs. Users integrate information by modeling it according to an ontology of their choice using a graphical user interface that automates much of the process. Karma learns to recognize the mapping of data to ontology classes and then uses the ontology to propose a model that ties together these classes. Users then interact with the system to adjust the automatically generated model. During this process, users can transform the data as needed to normalize data expressed in different formats and to restructure it. Once the model is complete, users can published the integrated data as RDF or store it in a database.
