Webinar Series - Linked Data Description of Cartographic Resources

Event Type: Web event
Date: 5/2/2018
Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Time: 2:00 PM
 This webinar will provide an overview of the work and output of the Linked Data for Production-Cartographic Materials (LD4P-CM) project, including an introduction to the Geospatial and Cartographic Materials Ontology (GCRO), developed by the LD4P-CM project, which can be used along with other Linked Open Data (LOD) vocabularies to extend the current BIBFRAME 2.0 and bibliotek-o models for the description of geospatial and cartographic resources.

The Linked Data for Production (LD4P) project is a multi-institutional effort that is exploring the use of the Library of Congress’ Bibliographic Framework Initiative (BIBFRAME) as a means to semantically annotate library metadata using Linked Open Data (LOD) principles.

The LD4P Cartographic Materials subproject is focused both on evaluating the existing BIBFRAME 2.0 ontology and extending the model in order to better support the description of geospatial and cartographic resources in LOD environments.
