RE: [newsml-g2] News Linked Data Summit
- The News Linked Data Summit was timely, (coincidentally) being held the day after the formal release of the data.gov  datasets . The availability of such datasets opens up the possibilities of creating complex data mashups from the linked data  that is now being made available in a common format such as RDF. Note that the TR OpenCalais entity data can be obtained in RDF format . The BBC presented their nature offering , which is the result of combining data (animal, habitat, sounds, classification, video, news, vulnerability etc.) from many disparate sources.Rgds------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Dave Compton

Subject: [newsml-g2] News Linked Data Summit
Last Friday, I attended a "News Linked Data Summit", hosted by the BBC, Guardian and the Media Standards Trust. You may be interested to read some of the published coverage

- If I was to prepare a file that listed equivalences between different sports data ontologies (say SportsML, Olympics Data Format and DPA-SportsML), what would be the best format to use? Because we are dealing with general "classes" here (league, event, team, player, etc.) rather than more specific "concepts" or instances, I thought OWL would be the ticket rather than conceptItem, even though those things are certainly concepts. OWL has a rich vocab convering ontology properties.
My aim is to see if mapping equivalences between ontologies (usually associated with a specific data provider) would help in generating knowledge items of equivalent concepts from different data providers -- either for documentation purposes or even automation if APIs are set up.
Hope that was clear :) Anyone see any use in this? Anyone doing anything similar outside of sports?
