Onderwerp: raw notes from open office rdf discussion

RDF extraction of microsoft documents
Old style doc vs OOXML is there any difference wrt metadata lots of
places to hide stuff in ooxml

ODF to financial reports. People want to rely on metadata

European prototype of templates, try to get Europe to accept the idea of
odf and RDF.

XBRL format for expressing financial reports. People not just want data
but also presentation How to integrate this need with odf Within XBRL
there are xlinks and concepts.

Open office As an application can handle a text format, a drawing,
presentation, spreadsheet and database. Chart based on spreadsheet data
can be an embedded object in a spreadsheet.
There is only one manifest.xml
serialization of database documents  is there SQL in Open office In the
api there is sparql.

scenario where you query the database and the metadate can these two
approaches benefit from eachother

Open office interface may not be limited in capacity to query the
database

Cambridge semantics did something on excel to migrate data to rdf so
both metadata and content can be explored simultaneous.


the user interface how to explore the data by the user Currently RDF is
not human readable.
If you have a cell in a table can you identify this.
Not the RDF id, but related information to provide background
information.
Second level is to be able to make selections based on these metadata.

Fixing the SPARQL engine is better than to create workarounds.

standard templates for ODF  within governments,  look if there is a
european government willing to participate.
IDABC has an expert group on open document exchange format and an expert
group on semantic interoperability creation of legal documents at the
european level might be interesting

rdf parser use for legacy data. Integrating parser with open office
Openness of open office for developers You can use java or C++ to
connect to Open Office via API There is an extension toolkit for Open
Office (like for mozilla) from OOo 3.0
