Linked Data : Current Status

The Semantic Web is a Web of Data — of dates and titles and part numbers and chemical properties and any other data one might conceive of. The collection of Semantic Web technologies (RDF, OWL, SKOS, SPARQL, etc.) provides an environment where application can query that data, draw inferences using vocabularies, etc. However, to make the Web of Data a reality, it is important to have the huge amount of data on the Web available in a standard format, reachable and manageable by Semantic Web tools. SPARQL 1.1 Protocol. 4.1 Security There are at least two possible sources of denial-of-service attacks against SPARQL protocol services.

SPARQL 1.1 Protocol

First, under-constrained queries can result in very large numbers of results, which may require large expenditures of computing resources to process, assemble, or return. Another possible source are queries containing very complex — either because of resource size, the number of resources to be retrieved, or a combination of size and number — RDF Dataset descriptions, which the service may be unable to assemble without significant expenditure of resources, including bandwidth, CPU, or secondary storage. In some cases such expenditures may effectively constitute a denial-of-service attack.

A SPARQL protocol service may place restrictions on the resources that it retrieves or on the rate at which external resources are retrieved. SKOS Simple Knowledge Organization System Namespace. Status of this Document This document describes the schema available from the SKOS namespace.

SKOS Simple Knowledge Organization System Namespace

Introduction The Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) is a common data model for sharing and linking knowledge organization systems via the Semantic Web.This document provides a brief description of the SKOS Vocabulary. For detailed information about the SKOS Recommendation, please consult the SKOS Reference [SKOS-REFERENCE] or the SKOS Primer [SKOS-PRIMER]. SKOS Schema Overview. Disciplinary Metadata. While data curators, and increasingly researchers, know that good metadata is key for research data access and re-use, figuring out precisely what metadata to capture and how to capture it is a complex task.

Disciplinary Metadata

Fortunately, many academic disciplines have supported initiatives to formalise the metadata specifications the community deems to be required for data re-use. This page provides links to information about these disciplinary metadata standards, including profiles, tools to implement the standards, and use cases of data repositories currently implementing them. For those disciplines that have not yet settled on a metadata standard, and for those repositories that work with data across disciplines, the General Research Data section links to information about broader metadata standards that have been adapted to suit the needs of research data.

Please note that a community-maintained version of this directory has been set up under the auspices of the Research Data Alliance. Vocabulary. Guidelines, Reference Cards. Linked Open Vocabularies.

See the Creating and Loading Projects section of the Getting Started with Protege-OWL Web page. Other ways to search for OWL ontologies include using Google: or the new Semantic Web search engine called Swoogle. AIM@SHAPE Ontologies: Ontologies pertaining to digital shapes.

Frame-based ontologies In the context of this page, the phrase "frame-based ontologies" loosely refers to ontologies that were developed using the Protege-Frames editor.

Interlinked Data. OntoWiki — Agile Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web. Semantic Web Case Studies. Case studies include descriptions of systems that have been deployed within an organization, and are now being used within a production environment.

Semantic Web Case Studies

Use cases include examples where an organization has built a prototype system, but it is not currently being used by business functions. The list is updated regularly, as new entries are submitted to W3C. There is also an RSS1.0 feed that you can use to keep track of new submissions. Please, consult the separate submission page if you are interested in submitting a new use case or case study to be added to this list.

DCMI Home: Dublin Core® Metadata Initiative (DCMI) ANDS - Metadata Stores Solutions. Overview ANDS supports the development of institution-wide solutions for the discovery and reuse of research data collections.

ANDS - Metadata Stores Solutions

Having funded the development of a number of software solutions for creating rich metadata records about collections of data, the next step is to ensure that this metadata is properly managed so that it can be harvested and exposed to search engines as well as to researchers and research administrators. Metadata Stores are a key component of this infrastructure. Workflow INstance Generation and Selection. Protégé. DIG Demos and Tools. Ontology Search. SameAs. Dandelion API.
