Achieving Interoperability between the CARARE Schema for Monuments and Sites and the Europeana Data Model

  1. 1. Achieving interoperability between the CARARE schema for monuments and sites and the Europeana Data Model Antoine Isaac, Valentine Charles, Kate Fernie, Costis Dallas, Dimitris Gavrilis, Stavros Angelis Dublin Core Conference 4 September 2013
  2. 2. Europeana.eu, Europe’s cultural heritage portal Text Image Video Sound 3D
  3. 3. Europeana’s aggregation network Museums National Aggregators Regional Aggregators Archives Thematic collections Libraries 29M objects from 2,200 European galleries, museums, archives and libraries CARARE
  4. 4. CARARE: Bringing content for archaeology and historic buildings to Europeana users  When: 3 year project (2010-2013) Who: heritage organisations, archaeological museums, research institutions and specialist archives 29 partners in 21 countries What: delivering content to Europeana What: aggregation services and good practices for content relating to archaeological monuments and historic sites • Metadata repository (MORE) • Metadata schema http://www.carare.e
  5. 5. CARARE Content  Images, text, videos, 3D models…
  6. 6. CARARE Metadata Schema Heritage asset Digital resources Activities Collection 4 themes http://www.carare.eu/eng/Resources/CARARE-Documentation Acts as an intermediary between the native metadata of content providers and Europeana
  7. 7. Heritage Assets Monuments, landscape areas, artefacts…  Title, Description  Characteristics • Type, Materials, Dimensions, Inscriptions • Spatial (place, address, map coordinates) • Temporal (date, time span, period)  Actors  Designation, Condition  References  Relations 7
  8. 8. Digital Resources Images, texts, videos, audio, 3D models  Title, Description  Characteristics  Publication statement  Actors  Link to the object (URL)  Rights  Relations 8
  9. 9. Europeana Data Model: an example
  10. 10. Provided Cultural Heritage Object (CHO) and descriptive metadata
  11. 11. Web Resources – digital representations
  12. 12. Aggregations – Bundling it all together
  13. 13. Objectives Mapping: finding correspondences between the elements of both models so that CARARE can send good metadata to Europeana Why is it important to report on this?  Mapping is rarely an easy issue  Models are complex, with subtle differences in world views  Both CARARE and Europeana benefits from “mapping meditation” One of the hardest (confronting) metadata exercises!  Sharing concrete experiences benefits to all Europeana partners And beyond: cf. goals of DC, “a metadata ecosystem”
  14. 14. Questions so far?
  15. 15. Mapping CARARE data to EDM A CARARE object becomes one or several EDM Provided Cultural Heritage Objects with:  Related web resources  Aggregations  Contextual information about place Some activity and spatial data cannot currently be mapped
  16. 16. Creating EDM resources from CARARE data edm:ProvidedCHO HA:PamFond/1978155 ore:Aggregation http://store.carare.eu/uid/iid:1655549 Heritage Asset’s identifier PamFond/1978155 CARARE’s Heritage Assets always give raise to one EDM ProvidedCHOs with its companion Aggregation The next issue is whether CARARE’s Digital Resources are also EDM CHOs…  It depends on the collection!
  17. 17. edm:isRepresentationOf edm:ProvidedCHO 1 edm:ProvidedCHO 5edm:ProvidedCHO 2 Scenario 1: cultural objects representing the CARARE HA count as CHOs
  18. 18. edm:ProvidedCHO 3 edm:ProvidedCHO 1 edm:ProvidedCHO 2 Scenario 2: Digital Resources are cultural objects qualifying as EDM CHOs but some are shared among several Heritage Assets
  19. 19. edm:ProvidedCHO 1 edm:WebResource 2edm:WebResource 1 Scenario 3: Digital Resources that are views of lesser cultural importance are treated as EDM Web Resources
  20. 20. Contextual Resources – e.g., Places CARARE’s geospatial enrichment represented with EDM contextual resource class
  21. 21. Conclusions CARARE provides better metadata to Europeana for 2M objects In the process  We identified non-trivial issues  We documented solutions (this paper!)  It prompted updates to CARARE’s schema (3D ICONS project)  It confirms the relevance of a richer model like EDM for Europeana  Human supervision remains crucial for choosing the right option Data curators can help here as with many other quality issues in data aggregation projects!
