Vocabulary linked data publication and mapping

    Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


    Semantic Enrichment Enabling Sustainability of Archaeological Links (SENESCHAL) was a 12 month AHRC funded project coordinated by the Hypermedia Research Unit at the University of South Wales. Project collaborators include English Heritage, the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and Wales (RCHAMW), Archaeology Data Service (ADS) and others. The project aims included:
    Widening access to key vocabulary resources. National cultural heritage thesauri and vocabularies are used by both national organizations and local authority Historic Environment Records and could potentially act as vocabulary hubs for the Web of Data. Making the terminology more openly accessible as Linked Open Data (LOD) could encourage wider adoption of standard terminology and engender useful community feedback on possible improvements to the existing vocabularies.
    As a result of this recently completed project a set of prominent UK archaeological thesauri and vocabularies is now freely available as LOD via http://www.heritagedata.org - together with open source web services and user interface controls.
