CMD2RDF: Building a Bridge from CLARIN to Linked Open Data

Research output: Chapter in book/volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


Metadata can be represented in many different ways. CLARIN’s Component Metadata Infrastructure (CMDI) uses the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) as the representation format for metadata records. However, the Resource Description Format (RDF) as used by Linked Open Data (LOD) is gaining more popularity. RDF has interesting potential for queries that involve both metadata about and the content of linguistic resources. This chapter describes the implementation of a mapping for records in CMDI from XML to RDF and experiments to assess the potential of this representation.
