Technical usability of Wikidata ’ s linked data Evaluation of machine interoperability and data interpretability

  title={Technical usability of Wikidata ’ s linked data Evaluation of machine interoperability and data interpretability},
  author={N. Freire and Antoine Isaac},
Wikidata is an outstanding data source with potential application in many scenarios. Wikidata provides its data openly in RDF. Our study aims to evaluate the usability of Wikidata as a data source for robots operating on the web of data, according to specifications and practices of linked data, the Semantic Web and ontology reasoning. We evaluated from the perspective of two use cases of data crawling robots, which are guided by our general motivation to acquire richer data for Europeana, a… Expand

Wikidata's Linked Data for Cultural Heritage Digital Resources: An Evaluation Based on the Europeana Data Model
This study aims to crawl and convert Wikidata using the standard approaches and operations developed for the (Semantic) Web of Data, i.e. using technologies like linked data consumption and RDF(S)/OWL ontology expression and reasoning, and re-use existing "semantic" specifications, such as conversions to and from generic data models like and SKOS.

Introducing Wikidata to the Linked Data Web
New RDF exports that connect Wikidata to the Linked Data Web are introduced and several partial exports are introduced that provide more selective or simplified views on the data. Expand
Linked Data-as-a-Service: The Semantic Web Redeployed
This paper combines a large-scale Linked Data publication project LOD Laundromat with a low-cost server-side interface Triple Pattern Fragments, in order to bridge the gap between the Web of downloadable data documents and the web of live queryable data. Expand
Metadata Aggregation: Assessing the Application of IIIF and Sitemaps Within Cultural Heritage
The first results in attempting to rethink Europeana’s technological approach for metadata aggregation are presented, to make the operation of the aggregation network more efficient and lower the technical barriers for data providers. Expand
Evaluation of for Aggregation of Cultural Heritage Metadata
The vocabulary is identified as a potential technology for innovating metadata aggregation and the need for accompanying its adoption by recommendations and/or specifications regarding how data providers should create their metadata so that they can meet the specific requirements of Europeana or other cultural aggregation networks is raised. Expand
Aggregation of Linked Data : A case study in the cultural heritage domain
The requirements for an LD aggregation solution are analysed and a workflow that fulfils the same functional requirements as Europeana’s current solution is defined, which was put into practice within the pilot and led to the development of several software components for managing datasets, harvesting LD, data analysis and integration. Expand
Evaluating Data Quality in Europeana: Metrics for Multilinguality
The paper presents an approach for assessing multilinguality as part of data quality dimensions, namely completeness, consistency, conformity and accessibility, and describes the measures defined and implemented, and provides initial results and recommendations. Expand
Publishing and Using Cultural Heritage Linked Data on the Semantic Web

  • Synthesis Lectures on the Semantic Web
  • 2012
This book gives an overview on why, when, and how Linked (Open) Data and Semantic Web technologies can be employed in practice in publishing CH collections and other content on the Web, and motivates and presents a general semantic portal model and publishing framework as a solution approach to distributed semantic content creation, based on an ontology infrastructure.

Web Technologies: A Survey of Their Applicability to Metadata Aggregation in Cultural Heritage
The results of the initial analysis of available potential technologies are presented, in particular, the following: IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework); Webmention; Linked Data Notifications; Sitemaps; ResourceSync; Open Publication Distribution System (OPDS); and the Linked data Platform. Expand
A comprehensive quality model for Linked Data
A quality model for Linked Data is presented, which provides a unique terminology and reference for linked Data quality specification and evaluation, and an extension of the W3C Data Quality Vocabulary that can be used to capture quality information specific to Linked data. Expand
Enriching and Publishing Cultural Heritage as Linked Open Data
This chapter presents the tools developed and the methodology adopted through the participation of the group in aggregation activities for enriching and publishing cultural heritage as Linked Open Data. Expand
