For the Nolde project it was requested to build a knowledge graph, containing detailed information about the austrian music scene: artists, bands and their music releases. We decided to use PoolParty, since theses entities should be accessible in an editorial workflow. More details about the implementation will be provided in a later blog post.
In the first round I want to share my experiences with the mapping of music data into SKOS. Obviously, LinkedBrainz was the perfect source to collect and transform such data since this is available as RDF/NTriples dumps and even providing a SPARQL endpoint! LinkedBrainz data is modeled using the Music Ontology. Continue reading →
Learn how to make use of PoolParty, step by step! Each video is about a specific feature or functionality of PoolParty Thesaurus Server or PoolParty Extractor. By walking through all the modules you learn how to use PoolParty for your Semantic Information Management.
The brand new web based GBPN Knowledge Platform has been launched on 21 February 2013. It helps the building sector effectively reduce its impact on climate change!
It has been designed as a participative knowledge hub and data hub harvesting, sharing and curating best practice policies in building energy performance globally. Available in English and soon in Mandarin, this new web-based tool of the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) aims to stimulate collective research and analysis from experts worldwide to promote better decision-making and help the building sector effectively reduce its impact on climate change. To sustain and accelerate change in the building sector, the GBPN encourages open and transparent access to good quality and verifiable data. The data can be used and re-used in HTML, PDF and machine readable raw data (CSV) formats – provided by a Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY 3.0 FR) license.
The GBPN Knowledge Platform is built on Drupal CMS and seamless connected with the PoolParty Semantic Information Management Platform of Semantic Web Company. Thereby this knowledge platform makes use of semantic technologies and Linked Open Data (LOD) principles and techniques under the hood. A lot of the available data of the various GBPN tools is provided as (linked) open data under a Creative Commons Attribution license. The Semantic Web Company is responsible for conceptual design and technical implementation of the GBPN Knowledge Platform.
As follows an overview and description of the most important features, tools and services of the information management system.
GotoWebinar, March 20: Semantic Web for Developers – building semantic applications with PoolParty
This webinar gives insights into software development based on semantic web standards. We will give a short overview over frequently used standards (SPARQL, SKOS and RDF), application scenarios and technologies (OpenRDF, Virtuoso, Solr/Lucene) and we will give live-demos on how to make use of PoolParty technologies to build a variety of semantic applications.
Part 1 (15min):
Short introduction to semantic web and linked data standards, overview over typical application scenarios
Part 2 (30min):
PoolParty architecture, components and APIs: making use of the linked data front end, Sparql endpoint, PoolParty reports, thesaurus API (PPT API), extractor API (PPX API) and semantic search API (PPS API) – for each API, an example will be shown (incl. returned formats and how to make use of it in a programming language like PHP)
Part 3 (10min):
Putting the pieces together: Combine the APIs to build
– a semantic search engine
– a content recommender
– a linked data mashup
