Ontology Building for Linked Open Data: A Pragmatic Perspective
- In this paper we discuss the process of creating ontologies in the rapidly expanding Linked Open Data (LOD) landscape. Over the years the notion of applied ontologies has shifted from that of a knowledge-intensive conceptual model for closed system applications to that of a lightweight representation tool for an open and decentralized environment like the Web. New opportunities for sharing, reusing and exploiting LOD ontologies available on the Web also bring new challenges for their development. Within the application scenario offered by Linked Jazz, a LOD project in the performing arts, we describe the methodological steps required to build an ontology to support the evolving knowledge representation requirements of the project.
