Compact RDF to Topic Maps Mapping Syntax (CRTM)

Proposal, was published by Lars Heuer at 2010-09-30

The Compact RDF to Topic Maps Mapping Syntax (CRTM) is a language to describe an RDF to Topic Maps mapping. It was designed to be compact and easy to write and read.

The RTM specification defines an RDF vocabulary which describes how RDF triples are converted into Topic Maps constructs. While that approach certainly works and has its advantages (like embedding the mapping into the RDF source), people familiar with Topic Maps have to write the mapping in an RDF format and the mapping may become verbose. More importantly, it is not possible to reuse an existing mapping within another mapping.

CRTM provides the same expressiveness as RTM and offers some additional features like translating the optional language tag into scope and makes the reuse of mappings possible.

This language operates with the same algorithm as described by RTM; it’s just an alternative, compact syntax (aside from the enhancements which are not supported by RTM).

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.
