Our team has undertaken reuse of public data , especially in the field of culture. For this, we treat public data available on data.gouv.fr to improve their use in semantic web and LOD ( Linked Open Data) .
The first set of re-published data is that entitled
Educational resources for teaching art history
published by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication , licensed ‘Open License‘ .
The original file is a CSV file, which contains the description of 5000 worksheets . This file has multiple columns with multiple values separated by ‘,’ or ‘;’ . We have improved the structure of the data by unlinking these values so they can be easily recognized for use in the Semantic Web , and in particular with SPARQL queries. In this regard, see https://ilot.wp.imt.fr/2014/01/16/publication-de-references-culturelles-dans-un-triple-store/, and the ongoing integration within the ILOT project.
The file was converted into RDF/XML . It is available at the following address http://givingsense.eu/onto/refCulture/refHistArts.rdf . It is published under Creative Commons Share Alike license .
Our data were announced in data.gouv.fr, here:
Future developments of our work are expected to enrich the data with :
- links to external data (eg links with DBPedia for people and places, geonames links for places )
- links to a description enriched for all tags and keywords used in this file.
Feel free to use this resource. Thank you for keeping us informed if you use or improve it.
