Using Terminology Web Services for the Archaeological Domain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


The AHRC funded STAR project (Semantic Technologies for Archaeological
Resources) has developed web services for knowledge organisation systems (KOS)
represented in SKOS RDF format, building on previous work by the University of
Glamorgan Hypermedia Research Unit on terminology web services. The current
service operates on a repository of multiple (English Heritage) thesauri converted to
SKOS format, containing terms and concepts that would be familiar to those working within the archaeological domain. It provides facilities for search, concept browsing and semantic expansion across these specialist terminologies.
