Linked Data : Linking your resources to the Data Web

The AIMS  Community is glad to announce the Webinar entitled Linking your resources to the Data Web.

This event is part of the series of [email protected]

The session will be presented by Tom Baker, chief information officer (CIO) of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI).

The objective of this webinar is to help individuals and organizations to understand better the initiatives related to the Semantic Web that are currently taking place.

Linking data into the Semantic Web means more than just making data available on a Web server. It means using Web addresses (URIs) in data as names for things; tagging resources using those URIs - for example, URIs for agricultural topics from AGROVOCand using URIs to point to related resources.

7 things you should know about…Linked Data 

The webinar "Linking your resources to the Data Web" walks through a simple example to show how linking works in practice, illustrating RDF technology with animated graphics.

It concludes with a recipe for linking your data: Decide what bits of your data are most important, such as Subject, Author, and Publisher.

Use URIs in your data, whenever possible, such as Subject terms from AGROVOC.
