Putting Data Categories in their Semantic Context

Presenters and Authors
  • M. Kemps-Snijders
  • M. Windhouwer
  • S. Wright

The TC 37 Data Category Registry (DCR; specifies names, authoritative definitions, and other information and constraints for data categories used in a wide range of linguistic resources. Data category selections subsetted and exported from the DCR in the Data Category Interchange Format can be used as the basis for configuring diverse applications. Furthermore, authoritative standardized data category definitions can contribute trustworthy semantic content for the creation of Relation Registries in the extended environ-ment of the DCR in support of external ontologies and other semantic web resources. Resources that refer-ence DCR specifications will require annotation using unique, location-independent, persistent identifiers, and procedures must be established for maintaining ongoing coordination of external resources referenc-ing the dynamic DCR. Developers are currently exploring approaches to data category modeling in RDF(S) and OWL-DL and plotting navigation strategies for traversing a network of data category and relation registries, as well as linguistic resources.
