[Crm-sig] Linked Places mapping

Still the information in a gazetteers and in old land (mediaeval, early modern) registries can be organized compliant with CRM. I assume that is what is meant. This, in my opinion, an interesting task and could help a lot.

Dear Francesco, Richard,

I am a bit confused. Even though people wrongly call a gazetteer a "place name ontology", it has nothing to do with ontology, because it is a collection of particulars. A place is not a class.

I understand that the mapping exercise is a data transformation from Pelagios schema, rather than the data about places, to CRM (geo). That should be a question of X3ML.

Is or includes ontome.net a schema mapping tool with data tansformation instructions?

All the best,

Dear Richard,

Notwithstanding a more authoritative response, we have developed the ontome.net application precisely for coping with this kind of issues – and providing in the end a RDF (XML-OWL) export of the mapping.

So, if you're interested, we can exchange on this.

Best wishes

The Linked Pasts gazetteer group (part of Pelagios) yesterday expressed an interest in mapping their Linked Places ontology to the CIDOC CRM. What is the current state of the art for doing this sort of mapping?  The last time I was involved in such an exercise, the result ended up in a not-very-processible spreadsheet, but I have a feeling we can do better than that these days.
