API Week #9: Mapping Metadata to Museum Ontologies

by Lars Willighagen


Deliverable: Setup search API (search functionality is not complete yet)

Week Summary

This week started working on the linked data model and mapping the concepts from the CDLI database to the CIDOC-CRM ontology (ICOM/CIDOC & CIDOC CRM SIG, 2011), based on suggestions from Chiarcos et al. (2018). Results of this will be presented in a meeting next week (week 10).

I also worked on reviewing the implementation of the search functionality. For implementing the API overlay I am awaiting some changes.
