Taxonomy Management based on SKOS-XL

  1. 1. Andreas Blumauer CEO, Semantic Web Company POOLPARTY SEMANTIC SUITE TAXONOMY MANAGEMENT BASED ON SKOS-XL 1
  2. 2. WHY SKOS-XL? Use Cases for Taxonomies based on SKOS Core + SKOS-XL 2
  3. 3. SKOS is used for taxonomy management in many different industries ▸ SKOS Core With SKOS Core, only concepts can be used as resources; labels are only ‘attached’ to concepts and cannot be described in more detail or related to each other 3 skos: Concept United States dollar skos:prefLabel USD US$ skos:altLabel skos: Concept skos:related United States of America skos:prefLabel USA skos:altLabel
  4. 4. With SKOS-XL, labels can become resources ▸ SKOS-XL - the main difference to SKOS Core With SKOS-XL, each label can become a resource. 4 skos: Concept USD US$ skos:altLabel skos: Concept skos:related United States of America skos:prefLabel USA skos:altLabel skos-xl: Label skos-xl:prefLabel United States dollar skos-xl:literalForm
  5. 5. Use Cases for SKOS-XL ▸ Introduce attributes for labels With SKOS-XL, each label can have specific attributes, e.g. ‘isSymbol’ or ‘isISOcode’, etc.5 skos: Concept United States dollar skos:prefLabel USD $ skos:altLabel skos-xl: Label skos: Concept skos-xl:prefLabel United States dollar skos-xl:literalForm skos-xl: Label skos-xl:altLabel USD skos-xl:literalForm true my:isISOcode skos-xl: Label skos-xl:altLabel $ skos-xl:literalForm truemy:isSymbol
  6. 6. Use Cases for SKOS-XL ▸ Put labels in a context With SKOS-XL, each label can have specific relations, e.g. information about provenance, etc.6 skos-xl: Label fibo-acc- cur: Currency skos-xl:prefLabel United States dollar skos-xl:literalForm skos-xl: Label skos-xl:altLabel USD skos-xl:literalForm fibo-plc- loc: Location fibo:isTenderIn United States of America skos:prefLabel skos-xl: Label skos-xl:altLabel Coco skos-xl:literalForm geo: Spatial Thing my:isNicknameIn Peru skos:prefLabel
  7. 7. Use Cases for SKOS-XL ▸ Relate labels to each other With SKOS-XL, each label can have specific relations, e.g. ‘isPredecessor’, ‘translates’, etc.7 skos-xl: Label fibo-plc- loc: Location skos-xl:prefLabel Switzerland@en skos-xl: Label Schweiz@de fibo-acc- cur: Currency fibo:isTenderIn Swiss franc skos:prefLabel skos-xl: Label Swiss Confederation@en skos-xl: Label Schweizerische Eidgenossenschaft@de skos-xl:altLabel my:translates my:translates
  8. 8. Use Cases for SKOS-XL ▸ Relate labels to each other With SKOS-XL, each label can have specific relations, e.g. ‘isPredecessor’, ‘translates’, etc.8 skos-xl: Label fibo-plc- loc: Location skos-xl:prefLabel Switzerland@en fibo-acc- cur: Currency fibo:isTenderIn Swiss franc skos:prefLabel skos-xl: Label Swiss Confederation@enskos-xl:altLabel my:isPredecessor
  9. 9. Use Cases for SKOS-XL ▸ Multiple and consistent (re)usage of labels With SKOS-XL, each label can be (re)used at multiple points of a thesaurus. This helps to keep a taxonomy even more consistent while labels are used in various contexts. 9 skos-xl: Label fibo-plc- loc: Location skos-xl:prefLabel Switzerland@en fibo-acc- cur: Currency fibo:isTenderIn Swiss franc skos:prefLabel skos-xl: Label Swiss Confederation@enskos-xl:altLabel my:isPredecessor geo: Spatial Thing skos-xl:prefLabel
