These are the slides that accompanied the paper "Dominic DiFranzo, John S. Erickson, Marie Joan Kristine T. Gloria, Joanne S. Luciano, Deborah McGuinness, & James Hendler, The Web Observatory Extension: Facilitating Web Science Collaboration through Semantic Markup, Proc. WWW 2014 (Web Science Track), Seoul, Korea, 2014." They describe an extension to schema.org that can be used for sharing Web-related datasets and projects.

Facilitating Web Science Collaboration through Semantic Markup

  1. 1. The Web Observatory Extension: Facilitating Web Science
 Collaboration through Semantic Markup" Dominic DiFranzo, John S. Erickson, Marie Joan Kristine T. Gloria, Joanne S. Luciano, Deborah McGuinness, James Hendler The Tetherless World Constellation & Institute for Data Exploration and Applications Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY
  2. 2. Introduction 6 •  Web Science involves using and producing large amounts of heterogeneous data about and from the web" " •  As we (Web Science researchers) strive to collaborate and work together, we must find ways to share, link and reuse each other’s data and tools." " •  To do this, we are striving to build “Web Observatories” – a common infrastructure for enhancing this sharing, and to extend it to also include tools, research project results(papers & experiments), etc." Tiropanis,T., Hall,W., Shadbolt, N., DeRoure, D., Contractor, N. and Hendler, J., TheWeb Science Observatory, IEEE Intelligent Systems, March/April, 2013.

  8. 8. Schema.org 6 •  An initiative launched by the leading search engine providers to create and support a common set of schemas for structured data markup on Web pages. •  These vocabularies enable the metadata to be more machine readable, allowing for better search, discover and display this information

  23. 23. Conclusions Science Data Observatory Social Spaces Observatory •  Integrating data on the Web, in general, is growing •  Schema.org is a data embedding model showing great success •  Schema.org/Dataset became official April 2013 •  Search Engine tools are increasingly making used of embedded markup •  Web Observatory extension aimed at use in (Web) scientific community •  Also being used by AGU and DCO scientific
  24. 24. Future Work Science Data Observatory Social Spaces Observatory •  Further extend the vocabulary to fit more web observatories •  Subcommunities can extend terminologies •  Build better tools to use and embed schema.org vocabulary into web observatories •  Integrate into “telescope” toolbox •  Build tools to make use of schema.org WO metadata (search engines, crawlers, etc) •  Google Domain Search underway
