  6. 6. Finding URIs ISWC 2009 Tutorial "How to Consume Linked Data on the Web"
  7. 7. Finding URIs ● What if there is no search possibility? ● You may try a SPARQL query: SELECT DISTINCT ?s WHERE { ?s rdfs:label ?label . FILTER regex( str(?label), "Berlin", "i" ) . } ISWC 2009 Tutorial "How to Consume Linked Data on the Web"

  14. 14. Getting Started Finding URIs Finding Additional Data Finding SPARQL Endpoints ISWC 2009 Tutorial "How to Consume Linked Data on the Web"
  15. 15. Finding Additional Data ● Problem: Given a URI, where do I find more data as what is available by looking it up? ● Three options: ● Follow links (e.g. rdfs:seeAlso, owl:sameAs) ● Use a co-reference service ● Use a search engine for the Web of Linked Data ISWC 2009 Tutorial "How to Consume Linked Data on the Web"
  16. 16. Finding Additional Data ● Co-reference services find different URIs that refer to the same thing ● sameAs http://sameas.org ISWC 2009 Tutorial "How to Consume Linked Data on the Web"

  19. 19. Finding Additional Data ● There is also an API ● Specify the preferred format in the URI http://sameas.org/rdf?uri=http://dbpedia.org/resource/Berlin http://sameas.org/n3?uri=http://dbpedia.org/resource/Berlin http://sameas.org/json?uri=http://dbpedia.org/resource/Berlin ● Use content negotiation GET /?uri=http://dbpedia.org/... HTTP/1.1 Host: sameas.org Accept: application/rdf+xml ISWC 2009 Tutorial "How to Consume Linked Data on the Web"
