    • Content types and Fields
    • Node

    • Mapping to RDF
    • Mapping to RDF
    • Experiment continued ● 1. Automatic site vocabulary generation ● 2. Mapping Content Models to existing ontologies ● 3. Data endpoint for SPARQL querying ● 4. Lazy loading of external data (data import)
    • Drupal 7 and RDF ● Drupal 7 core is RDFa enabled! ● RDFa output by default on blogs, forums, comments, etc. 
using FOAF, SIOC, DC, SKOS ● Beta1 released a few days ago
    • Drupal 7 and RDF
    • Drupal 7 contributed modules ● http://drupal.org/project/rdf ● Import vocabularies ● Interface for mappings ● http://drupal.org/project/sparql_ep ● SPARQL endpoint on Drupal data ● PHP ARC2 library http://github.com/semsol/arc2
    • RDFDB: an RDF Database API ● Access RDF stores via a consistent API ● SPARQL 1.1 ● Vendor agnostic ● Similar to Drupal 7 Database abstraction layer ● rdfdb_insert_data($graph, $triples)->execute(); ● rdfdb_select('?g ?s ?p ?o')->where('GRAPH ?g { ? s ?p ?o . }')->limit(1000)->execute();
    • RDFDB: an RDF Database API ● Similar to Drupal 7 Database abstraction layer ● rdfdb_insert_data($graph, $triples)->execute(); ● rdfdb_select('?s ?p ?o')->where('?s ?p ?o')- >limit(10)->execute(); ● rdfdb_clear($graph)->execute() ● Do not worry about what RDF store the SPARQL endpoint is running on
    • RDFDB: an RDF Database API ● Connection info: ● Support for master/slave servers ● Drivers for ARC2, Virtuoso, 4store ● Comes with tests!
    • RDFDB: an RDF Database API ● Why an abstraction layer? ● Every store has its own way to implement SPARQL updates, some are RESTful, some others have their own SPARQL update syntax. ● ARC2: SPARQL+ via POST requests ● 4store: POST, PUT and DELETE requests ● Download ● http://github.com/scor/rdfdb
    • How to get involved ● So many ways... code, documentation, support, translations, graphic design ● http://drupal.org/getting-involved ● Watch video http://webchick.net/node/80
