SKOS for an Integrated Vocabulary Structure

Download PDF Read Online

In order to transfer the Chinese Classified Thesaurus (CCT) into a machine-processable format and provide CCT-based Web services, a pilot study has been conducted in which a variety of selected CCT classes and mapped thesaurus entries are encoded with SKOS. OWL-lite and RDFS are also used to encode the same contents for the purposes of feasibility and cost-benefit comparison. The poster reports on the progress, share the sample SKOS entries, and summarize problems identified during the SKOS encoding process. Results of OWL and RDFS encoding for the same vocabulary structure will be used for comparison.
