RDF Representation

Back to LOD interface

The LIDO Terminology is a set of disjoint LIDO Concept Schemes defining concepts as values for certain elements or attributes of instances of the LIDO Schema. Each concept scheme is represented as a separate named graph when exposed as Linked Open Data. Serialization of named graphs requires the use of an appropriate syntax such as TRiG (Turtle plus named graphs) or N-Quads. For data exchange, the TRiG syntax should be used for reasons of readability.
