Semantic Web: Development and Transmission

Subproject of:

Competence Network: New Services, Standardization, MetaData




Here you can find links to tools and short descriptions that, for the purpose of our project, make a contribution to the development of the Semantic Web. This list is incomplete and suggestions for further additions are welcome. Some of these tools were developed (further advanced) in the project of Cashmere-int.

CARA - Carmen RDF API. Version 2.

CARA is a RDF parser. It parses the RDF/XML and generates triples. It follows the RDF Grammar given by W3C (World Wide Web Consortium). CARA is based on the graph model of RDF and supports in-memory and persistent storage of RDF graphs. CARA was developed by Department of Mathematics/Computer Science, University of Osnabrück and is written in Perl.

MMM.Persons 4.0 - Math-Net Meta Maker for Persons

As the amount of documents on the Internet grows day by day. In the Math-Net, a Metadata set for person data was defined in order to make a qualified search possible for information about persons. It is based upon the international standards in WWW such as Dublin Core Metadata, vCard, RDF, XML. Substantial steps have been taken at University of Osnabrück in the development of Framework and Tools that help in the creation of standardized personal homepages. MMM.Persons is easy to use and is provided with the help of a GUI form. The base task this tool performs is to create standardized and valid XHTML, MathML, SVG & RDF documents.

3 RDS 1.0 - Resource Description Server

Means of sharing authoritative knowledge about a given resource, based solely on the URI denoting that resource, becomes critical to achieving a fully open, global, scalable, and ubiquitous Semantic Web. RDS is a tool for knowledge discovery, both from authoritative sources as well as from arbitrary third party sources. It introduces an extension to the present web architecture used to indicate to a web server that it should resolve the specified URI in terms of knowledge about the resource denoted by that URI rather than in terms of a representation of the resource in question.

4 TheO - Thesis Online Broker

TheO is the acronym for Theses Online. TheO is actually a search machine where one can search for theses submitted in various German universities. The system is based on Harvest-NG. The system is originally meant for collecting theses from German universities and summarizing it and storing it in a common format.

It also provides a WWW - query able interface so that the interested people can give their queries to get the matching outputs. The system is an IWI installation developed and maintained by the working group of Scientific/Mathematical information at the department of Mathematics/Computer science of the University of Osnabrück. The gathering process is done periodically for every 30 days.

5 HyREX on MathNet Preprints

Hyper Media Retrieval Engine for XML documents is used on the Mathnet.preprints data. The user interface is equipped with the various features supported by HyREX like vague search predicates and searching methods. Internally HyREX fetches the results based on index weighting and query term weighting.

6 MMM version 3.2 - Mathematics Metadata Markup, MPRESS

The interface of MMM tool version 3.2 creates index files for mathematical preprints and published articles. The created file contains RDF Metadata which are useful for search engines to retrieve and provide documentation for the paper.
