What's it about?
The topic of the third DM4T workshop - on March 28th+29th in Bath - is how to make your project's data discoverable and queryable on the web with the minimum of effort.
Following on from workshop 2 on data formats and tools (see http://www.cs.bath.ac.uk/dm4t/w2.shtml), DM4T has been evaluating tools on some published (i.e. "legacy") TEDDI project datasets, typically starting from CSV or MySQL, in order to identify effective ways to:
- synthesize metadata
- associate semantic tags with literal data
- transform CSV datasets into semantic databases
- process semantic queries (using SPARQL) across one or more datasets
- produce analyses using popular tools like Matlab and R
More detailed descriptions of the above are available via the Outputs link above.
The goal of this workshop is to help you to use these tools on your data so that when your data is published, the queries you wrote to generate the graphs in that paper can readily be repeated by others (you know you want this!) and that it becomes possible to combine the data from one TEDDI project with that of another. This is a BYOD = Bring Your Own Dataset meeting. We will introduce you to the tools and techniques we have used, then help you to apply them to your data.
