Translation between RDF and Topic Maps: Divide and Translate

Translation between RDF and Topic Maps

In trying to enhance the RDF - Topic Maps conversion we focus on identifying the right balance between the following key aspects: (i) semantics-preserving translation; (ii) completeness of the translation; (iii) pragmatics and usability of the translation. In contrast to the previous works on RDF - Topic Maps mapping, preserving the ontological vocabulary is not a required property of our translation approach. Instead, the basic requirements are guided by pragmatic and semantic considerations. As a result, the focus is on a translation respecting the meaning, the utility and the readability of the translated data.
