Melbourne LOD-LAM gets serious

Posted by

Well, that’s perhaps an overstatement, but we are pursuing the ‘practical and pragmatic applications’ approach and running two follow-up sessions to our April event:

Tuesday 31st July
Venue: TBC
1.30 – 3.00pm – Place names
3.30 – 5.00pm – ANZAC material

People already working with linked data in each area will be present, and the sessions will canvas opportunities to work together – with regards to linked-open-data proper and linked data more generally. It will be relevant for both technical and programming staff.

RSVP: 16th July : Eleanor Whitworth, Senior Arts Officer/Content Curator, Culture Victoria (Monday – Wednesday) email: eleanor[dot]whitworth[at]dpc[dot]vic[dot]gov[dot]au or @elewhitworth

    Dear all, I would love to join you for what I expect will be a brilliant day for all…suffice to say I am extremely jealous! Given that I am still in rehab from my stroke I would like to put in a plug fr the PROV wiki, a semantic wiki that is described by a single XML document here. http://thedatahub.org/dataset/public-record-office-victoria-semantic-wiki. The blurb on data hub describes how you can query the RDF document using a generic sparql query web service and how you can convert the RDF to other formats using http://morph.talis.com/.

      Thanks Asa. Will pass this onto the group, and I’ll post a write-up of the session next week.

    Hi Eleanor,

    I’m still waitint to hear back from Talis as to what happened to their Morph tool which is no longer available at the url i quoted(how ironic). in the mean time you can still view the prove wiki rdf using
    http://www.w3.org/RDF/Validator/ and pasting http://wiki.prov.vic.gov.au/rdf/Public_Record_Office_Victoria_Semantic_Wiki.rdf into the Checky by Uri field. you will have the option to view the triples and the xml. unfortunately you won’t see an image of the 9000+ triples

    just enter the following
