A short post, which will evolve from time to time, to list some SPARQL endpoints which have a significant relation with France, for example:
- data produced by a french institution;
- data about french resources.
The Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the main and the official library in France, published a lot of data about artworks, authors and artists.
- The project is accessible here: http://data.bnf.fr/en/en
- The SPARQL endpoint is here: http://data.bnf.fr/sparql
This project helps a lot of french actors which work on cultural data (Digital Humanities) to publish data on an unique access point. A lot of data sets have been published.
- The project is described here: http://www.huma-num.fr/service/isidore
- The SPARQL endpoint is here: http://www.rechercheisidore.fr/sqe/
A workgroup has taken the job to expand the DBPedia intiative to the french Wikipedia. The SPARQL endpoint is here: http://fr.dbpedia.org/sparql (virtuoso endpoint)
(to check: what is http://fr.dbpedia.org/snorql/)
The european project Europeana collect a lot of european cultural data including french data.
- The project is described here: http://www.europeana.eu/portal/usingeuropeana_search.html
- The SPARQL endpoint is here: http://europeana.ontotext.com/sparql
- some sites refers to http://europeana-triplestore.isti.cnr.it/sparql witch is a virtuoso endpoint
… and really small in regard of previous projects. Our team is publishing data and enrichment about the french curiculum and the school system. It’s experimental, a work in progress. All is not so clean as it should be, but things are useful as is. The project is commented here:
Datasets are progressively integrated in a triple store with a sparql endpoint:
http://shadok.enst.fr:8890/sparql (Virtuoso endpoint)
Available datasets are for instance:
- an RDF representation of a list of pedagogical material published by the french Ministère de la Culture (voir https://onsem.wp.imt.fr/2014/03/05/re-utilisation-de-donnees-publiques/); our set is here: http://givingsense.eu/onto/refCulture/refHistArts.rdf and available as named graph http://givingsense.eu/onto/refCulture/refHistArts.rdf# with prefix rfha: in our triple store ,
- an ontology for the french school system published in http://givingsense.eu/2013/ontologies/frenchcuriculum/FrSchoolSystem.owl and available as named graph http://givingsense.eu/2013/ontologies/frenchcuriculum/FrSchoolSystem.owl#with prefix frscol: in our triple store.
