numishare - Numishare is an open source suite of applications for managing digital cultural heritage artifacts, with a particular focus on coins and medals

  •    XSLT

Numishare is an open source suite of applications for managing digital cultural heritage artifacts, with a particular focus on coins and medals. It is developed and maintained by the American Numismatic Society and employed for its online collection. The architecture of the application is built upon an XML foundation. Coins and medals are described in an XML adaptation of NUDS, the Numismatic Database Standard. Other artifacts are encoded in VRA Core 4.0. The adherence to common library/archive/museum standards and best practices ensures the long-term sustainability and curation of the data. The code has descended and evolved from the University of Virginia Art Museum Numismatic Collection website, produced by the University of Virginia Library and hosted by the Scholars' Lab. The project commenced in Fall 2007 and the code was open sourced Summer 2009. Considerable work commenced, with sponsorship from the Kittredge Numismatic Foundation, to develop the software with small-to-medium institutions, collectors, and historical societies in mind. An administrative interface was developed taking advantage of cutting-edge XForms apps to create, edit, and publish the XML data. The architecture is a major departure from typical LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) content management systems, enabling far more sophisticated data models which allow for the creation of an advanced public user interface.

Dockerized-DBpedia - creates a docker image with Virtuoso preloaded with the latest DBpedia dataset

  •    Shell

(i.e. replace the -ti --rm switches with a -d switch, please consult the Docker Run Reference for details) N.B.: Currently it is required the container has exactly the name dld-dbpedia, we hope to get rid of this constraint soon. SPARQL query web interface can be accessed at http://localhost:8891 once the downloading and bulk loading task are finished.




linkeddata-trivia - Auto-generated trivia questions based on DBPedia data.

  •    Javascript

Originally I got inspired by this recent post on HackerNews, where alex_g has built a quiz, which automatically generates questions from Wikipedia articles using natural language processing (NLP). However, I found the results not that satisfying, yet, and decides to build my own dynamic quiz. Instead of NLP processing I decided to use Linked Data as a base for generating questions. More precisely I'm using the DBPedia knowledge base to retreive fact information from, which mostly originates in Wikipedia articles as well. The data is structured as an RDF graph and can be queried using SPARQL. Despite from the official DBPedia SPARQL endpoint this little proof-of-concept-like app uses another webservice, kit-lod16-knowledge-panel, which I developed in the context of the Linked Open Data seminar at university. It is responsible for ranking RDF properties for specific RDF entities by relevance in order to decide, which one to display to an end-user (or include to a quiz). Available HERE (may be down or unstable).
