  • Discuss ‘safe transforms’ as one example of smartening up.Do we need some examples of these?
  • Example of quantitative purposes: X number of unevaluated maps agree with a particular assertion of relationship.More examples? Pictures?

  • Mapping: what we mean • Semantic mapping is not crosswalking: – Crosswalks express one relationship: ‘equivalentTo’ – Maps can express a variety of relationships for more nuanced results • Maps are more granular than crosswalks: – Crosswalks are schema-to-schema – Maps express relationships between individual properties or classes, regardless of schema
  • No more ‘perfect’ map • There is not one ‘standard’ map; each user can create/maintain his own, or multiples – Under this model, maps can serve special purposes or distinct communities, and be shareable with others • Definitions are critically important—good mapping connections can even be made on a ‘close enough’ basis, using something like skos:closeMatch – In crosswalks, ‘close enough’ is often actually expressed as ‘equivalent’

  • How Can We Use This? • Relationships that come with the schema can be used by anyone: – Originating institution or individual • As original, relatively complex data used internally • As ‘dumbed-down’ version of the richer data • As defined by AP or local understanding of specific needs – Receiving institution or individual • As presented by originating institution • As ‘smartened-up’ data, defined by AP or understanding of original data • As ‘mapped’ data in schema or language more locally useful
  • How Can We Use This? • Relationships that are external to the schema (asserted by map attributed to others) can be used selectively: – From trusted institution, group or individual • Based on AP built by known institution or group • Based on knowledge of the mapmaker – From unknown institution, group or individual • Based on evaluation over time of the quality of the map • Based on understanding that a map from unknown sources can be used for quantitative purposes
