SKOS for an Integrated Vocabulary Structure

Marcia Lei Zeng, Wei Fan, Xia Lin


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.
