Abstract


Late in October 2013 a group of developers decided to meet in Copenhagen and hack on the DDI Lifecycle and DDI Codebook to transform this into RDF the DDI Discovery Vocabulary way.

The XSLT mappings are useful for organizations who want to make their data documentation (based on DDI XML) available in RDF.

The DDI-RDF Discovery Vocabulary provides a common easy to use vocabulary describing essential parts of both the Lifecycle and Codebook version of DDI.

During the hackathon we also tested some of the use cases of the vocabulary specification by running SPARQL queries against the transformed collections.

This presentation will report on findings and results from this hackathon as well as lessons learned from this way of facilitating work processes.
