Hi Joachim,

 

On the NISO site, the ISO 25964 published http://www.niso.org/apps/group_public/download.php/9627/Correspondence%20ISO25964-SKOSXL-MADS-2012-10-21.pdf

Pages 11 and following give a high level possible approach for publishing thesaurus (or SKOS Concept schema versions).

 

It think it can be extended to add the version difference report as well.

 

Kind Regards,

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

 

Hi,

 

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.
