schemarama 2

Hi all,

I've written up an idea for using SPARQL to generate reports based on the content of an RDF graph, a pragmatic way of testing whether an RDF graph says what you want it to say, see:

I've called this 'schemarama 2' because it's very similar in approach to the 'schemarama' work done by Libby Miller, Dan Brickley and Leigh Dodds, see [1].

I've done this mainly because I've had a number of requests for 'validation' of SKOS data, but the 'constraints' described for SKOS Core cannot be expressed via OWL, and are not necessarily appropriate for all uses of SKOS Core anyway.  Hence I thought to define various test cases to support different applications of SKOS.

Any comments or suggestions most welcome.
