This weeks presented feature is the new integration interface of the Linked Open Vocabularies (LOV) repository. LOV is a hand crafted repository of linked RDF/OWL vocabularies with well managed vocabulary meta data. We added a Vocabulary Selection module in order to allow searching and exploring of the LOV repository. This module allows for:
- Create a Knowledge Base directly from a search result by importing the content from the web (create model screen)
- Add the content of a specific vocabulary to an existing Knowledge Base (add data screen)
- Add namespace prefixes based on a LOV search (configure model screen)
Search is done by a SPARQL query which uses a case-insensitive regular expression over all direct properties of the listed vocabularies.
The screenshot shows the module in action, in this case a result of a search for “Event”.
This LOV integration is currently available in the
develop branch only and will be released with the next OntoWiki version.
