Topic Maps Data Model (TMDM) in a nutshell

Published by {{by}} on {{at}} and updated at {{updated}}.

Abstract:

A very compact illustration of all relationships within the TMDM.

To be more specific, this illustration makes two concessions to TMAPI users: A TopicMap according to TMDM does not have a locator. This is just needed to address the TopicMap object within TMAPI. Furthermore, TMDM Topics don’t have IDs, these are only there for simplified handling in TMAPI.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
