Unrequited Love and the Ontology of Duckburg


By murray - Posted on 04 April 2008

Birte, Kjersti and Asbjørn are Masters students in the Faculty of Journalism, Library and Information Science at University College Oslo. Six months ago they hadn’t heard of Topic Maps. Since then they have created four topic maps between them, on subjects as diverse as Open Access to scientific and scholarly information, percussion instruments, and the world of Donald Duck and friends. In this presentation they recount some of what they learned, the tools they used, and the processes involved in creating an ontology.

The goal of the presentation is to convince you that topic mapping is not that hard, that it can be a lot of fun – and that everyone ought to go straight home and start creating their own topic map.
