Hi Johan,

I think using void for the purposes you describe makes sense. For STW Thesaurus for Economics, I’ve done something quite similar – see http://zbw.eu/stw/void.ttl. A RDFa page for the, e.g.,  Agrovoc mapping may be found at http://zbw.eu/stw/versions/8.10/mapping/agrovoc/.

The interesting question of versioning the datasets and particularly versioning the mappings is however still to solve …

Cheers, Joachim

Betreff: Question: What is Best Practice for a Catalog of ConceptScheme mapping


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.
