LOD Lifecycle Model (version 2.1)
To verify the purposes of data conversion to LOD and the requirements for future applications
To ensure and acquire the license permission for data re-consumption
Data Architecture Evaluation
Analyze data structure, content of currently reusable ontology and authority files to form the basis for data modeling
To design the ontology/ semantic data model
To structure the original data and correct data errors to optimize quality
To design or assign the reusable URIs to each data resource; to reuse and link to the external resources (such as AAT, VIAF, DBpedia, GeoNames, etc.); to establish the semantic relations between the resources
To create the linkages between heterogeneous resources through the technology of the Named Entity Recognition
To convert, release the data in RDF file format (such as N-Triples, Turtle) and upload into the triple store
Data Querying in SPARQL
To establish the SPARQL endpoint and offer semantic query functionality, with examples
To publish the LOD-based datasets in the worldwide open data platform for data sharing and distribution (eg. datahub.io) and in the local-established LOD datasets interface(eg. ASCDC LOD datasets)
To develop the application system for providing the LOD-based service system (such as a website); to revise the data content through the function of crowdsourcing embedded in the application system
To constantly maintain the validity, accessibility and usable status of the published LOD datasets
Provision of 13 LOD datasets (613,707 entries; 5,398,118 triples) that our laboratory has released to the world.View all & download LOD arrow_forward
LINKED TAIWAN ARTISTShttp://linkedart.ascdc.tw/index.php
Linked Taiwan Artists provides biographical resources on Taiwanese artists in the Japanese colonial period (1895-1945), which include the artist’s academic training, professional career, participation in associations, and related exhibitions. The information provided on the site includes data related to people, events, time, locations, and objects. The objective is to trace the shifts in the development of Taiwan’s fine art, and to render the information exploratory and easily readable through visualization tools such as timelines and maps.
Art & Architecture Thesaurus Taiwanhttp://aat.teldap.tw/index.php
Provides for download the LOD-based authority files collected through Academia Sinica and the Getty Research Institute’s multilingual collaboration. The Chinese-language “Art and Architecture Thesaurus” (AAT-Taiwan) was begun by our Center in 2008, as the Chinese-translation platform of the Getty Research Institute’s multinational “AAT Multilingual Project.” AAT is a multilingual database containing vocabulary terms with three types of semantic relationships: equivalence, hierarchical, and associative. Terms are categorized into seven facets: Objects, Materials, Physical Attributes, Associated Concepts, Agents, Styles and Periods, and Activities. Its contents can be used as foundation for museum catalogs and document work, or to facilitate data retrieval in the study of art, architecture, or material culture. The ability to cite this digital database’s controlled vocabulary is its most important and fundamental application for the humanities.
Open Museum (LOD application in planning)http://openmuseum.tw
Shows how LOD strengthens virtual museums’ abilities to recommend context-relevant collection pieces. The Academia Sinica Center for Digital Cultures created an open museum that upholds the spirit of open sharing and co-creation. It provides a free online space for the collections of museum groups or private individuals. Members can utilize our exhibition modules and tools, link others’ amazing collections to their own, and use the virtual museum to produce all-new virtual themed exhibits.
