Description

Task: See if texts annotated with Linked data in a tool like Recogito can be connected to an old platform like Alvin

Background: Uppsala University had an Open Access week that I guess is part of Plan-S. This workshop was part of that

Scenario

  • A: A Linked data annotated book like Iliad can be illustrated by pictures in Alvin just by using the linked objects for navigation
  • B: When looking on objects in Alvin it should be possible to find texts and maps annotated with linked data

We need to make cultural data available for people doing digital humanities research. Today when I check cultural metadata it is most strings and not things and very weak see examples

Another linked data antipattern I see is that a plattfom like Wikipedia/Wikidata has an notability requirement i.e. many people cant get an Identifiers that can be reused by more tools see sessions this weekend in Berlin

Workflow

1) The text gets annotated in Recogito

At a workshop at Digital Humaniora in Uppsala with Elton Barker we learned how to annotate text with the tool Recogito developed by the Pelagios initiativ using Linked data and the Pleiades gazetteer.

see also:

The text can be imported with automatic name entity recognition NER

2) Linked data does the magic

See list of other properties in WIkidata connected to objects that has Property 1584 Pleiades ID

3) Record in Alvin with no Linked data and bad structured metadata is found

From "dead fish" to active Linked data member

The above POC is done mostly in Wikidata

Lesson learned from the workshop yesterday is that domain experts need to start communicate with people adding Metadata in the archives

  • is Tegea the right "level"/granularity or are we interested in parts of the picture

  • how should locations be mentioned?
    • should a specific location authority be used? as pleiades.stoa.org/places, why dont we have this in Sweden for Swedish historical places/ categories of interests, maybe Tora is a start [T233275]
    • today its a mess in Tora as you cant understand if its a place, parish or something else... does it matter... ask the end users
  • why do we just group person,place,organisation we need Things not Strings

To do in Alvin

  • add easier way of giving feedback on items
  • if the data is active you should be able to see versions in Alvin of objects data
  • if delivering a good solution Alvin needs to start speak with people doing research et. al. what user stories they have

  • Link video

Misc

Pleiades a community-built gazetteer and graph of ancient places. It publishes authoritative information about ancient places and spaces, providing unique services for finding,

  • Map places in Wikidata with Pleiades id in Greece, orange is place where also we have connected Alvin

Alvin is a platform for digital collections and digitized cultural heritage with a much more unmature location information and no support for Linked data

  • Wikipedia use Wikicommons for storing pictures new is that
    • Wikicommon is a local installation of "Wikidata" see Wikibase
    • all pictures now can have structured data as linked objects
    • the Wikicommon Wikibase "reuse" the ontology of Wikidata i.e. all people places... in Wikidata can be referenced
    • new tools are created to add Linked data on pictures in a structured way using linked data see tweet
