Semantic Cartography: Using ontologies to create adaptable tools for text exploration

  1. 1. Semantic cartography<br />Using ontologies to create adaptable tools for text exploration<br />
  2. 2. TEI and SEASR<br />SEASR: Software Environment for the Advancement of Scholarly Research<br />NEH Digital Humanities Start-Up Grant to develop a set of SEASR tools for exploring TEI-encoded texts.<br />
  3. 3. The SEASR Workbench<br />
  4. 4. The SEASR Workbench: Output<br />
  5. 5. Problem:<br />How do we handle variability in the incoming TEI due to:<br />Idiosyncratic encoding<br />Inconsistent encoding<br />TEI’s native flexibility<br />
  6. 6. Semantic Mapping using Ontologies<br />RDF uses ontologies (RDFS/OWL) to associate a piece of data with a conceptual framework:<br />Example:<br />xmlns:dbo=http://dbpedia.org/ontology/<br />Class: dbo:populatedPlace<br />Subclass: dbo:country<br />Instance: “Spain”<br />
  7. 7. Ontological definition<br />Understands<br />Is <br />RDF “Slice”[1]<br />Software<br />The Semantic Map allows<br />any software that can interpret RDF to work with any semantic idea that can be associated with an ontological definition.<br />1http://rdftef.sourceforge.net/<br />
  8. 8. Demo<br />RDF<br />TEI<br />RDFa<br />(aka XHTML+ RDF)<br />RDF<br />RDF<br />
