All Standards and Drafts. Cool URIs for the Semantic Web. Abstract The Resource Description Framework RDF allows the users to describe Web documents and resources from the real world—people, organisations, things—in a computer-processable way.

Cool URIs for the Semantic Web

Publishing such descriptions on the Web creates the Semantic Web. URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) are very important, forming the link between RDF and the Web. This document presents guidelines for their effective use. It discusses two strategies, called 303 URIs and hash URIs. Status of this document This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication. This is a First Public Working Draft of an intended W3C Interest Group Note giving a tutorial explaining decisions of the TAG for newcomers to Semantic Web technologies.

Please send comments about this document to (with public archive). Most issues found in TAG and SWD reviews have been addressed, known remaining issues with this document are listed in the changelog section. Scope Table of Contents. C Semantic Web Activity. The Semantic Web is a web of data.

C Semantic Web Activity

There is lots of data we all use every day, and it is not part of the web. I can see my bank statements on the web, and my photographs, and I can see my appointments in a calendar. But can I see my photos in a calendar to see what I was doing when I took them? Can I see bank statement lines in a calendar? Why not? The Semantic Web.

Tools - Semantic Web Standards

These include complete development environments, editors, libraries or modules for various programming languages, specialized browsers, etc. The goal is to list such tools and not Semantic Web applications in general (the interested reader may consider looking at the W3C SW Use Case Collection for those.) The tool content of this wiki is still to be maintained by the community and not by the W3C staff. If you are interested in adding to and/or modifying the relevant pages, please consult the separate Tool Contributors’ page. Search possibilities The current Wiki contains references to 336 tools.

Search through categories, i.e., reasoners, programming environments, browsers, etc. Last modified/added Tool Data in RDF There is also an option to get one RDF/XML graph for all tools.

InformationPhilosophyForTheSemanticNetworkv1.0.pdf (application/pdf-object) Linked things « So this is the question: do you always need separate URIs for non-information resources and the information resource? That is do you need an identifier for both the document and the thing the document is about? Your answer to that question will depend a lot on your attitudes to the semantic web project.

Now until recently I would have said “yes you do need both”, but recently I’ve been thinking that perhaps it’s not quite so black and white. Before I get into why I think it probably makes sense to backtrack a little and explain the background to the question. After all for many people this question seems odd: why on earth would you need a URI for anything other than the web page, the document? Library Parabola by Alex Watson, some rights reserved In the real world we give all sorts of things identifiers: people have passports and National Insurance Numbers; buildings get Post Codes; books ISBNs etc.

Semantic web standards. Everything Is Miscellaneous - Chapter One. The New Order of Order Before the Web, the word browsing was usually a polite way of telling a salesperson to buzz off. “May I help you?” A salesperson asks. “I’m just browsing,” you reply with a little smile. With that word, a customer declares a lack of commitment. Browsing is more than window-shopping, fantasizing about what it would be like to own something or resenting those who do. The normal organization of a store works well enough if you come in knowing what you want: Go to the fiction shelf, find the “A” section conveniently located at the beginning of the alphabetized authors, and locate that copy of Pride and Prejudice for your niece.

If only there were a way to arrange the stuff in stores so that every possible interest could be captured. At Apple Computer’s iTunes music store, it’s already happened. And the iTunes store isn’t even all that miscellaneous. Everything Has Its Places It won’t be easy. Now check your computer. We’re simply not going to be able to keep up.
