Good Concept Scheme mappings are valuable assets that may be put in a linked data catalog.

What is the best practice to do this?


I have considered VoID (http://vocab.deri.ie/void) as one of the vocabularies allowing to express the relationship(s) between the mapped concept schemes and the used mapping property.

In the illustration below

- The mapping is a Linkset (and a dataset) http://myDScatalog/ConceptSchemeMapping/AgroVoc-EuroVoc

- The linkset characterized by the linking properties (linkPredicate) skos:exactMatch and skos:closeMatch.

- The mapped skos:ConceptScheme are detailed by datasets in my Dataset catalog.

- The dataset description can use (multiple) void:vocabulary properties to indicate the dataset can be processed using any of the following RDF schema

   - http://www.w3.org/2004/02/skos/core

   - http://www.w3.org/2008/05/skos-xl

   - http://eurovoc.europa.eu/schema

- The linkset identifies the mapped dataset using void:subjectsTarget and the void:objectsTarget

   (though the distinction between source and subject is less relevant in the given example – because the link predicates listed are symmetric)




Thanks for advice.
