csv2rdf4lod provenance

1) why to trust a third part aggregator 2) provide pointer back to how a particular element appears on a third party site. (not to get blamed).

Tim still needs to give a link to an example provenance in csv2rdf4lod (but he needs to revisit what's there)

Cynthia publishing in FUSE

on Mac: command-K to connect to server

turn on vpn webdav: using web browser: https://tw1.tw.rpi.edu/fuse/ on mac, finder->go->connect to server-> https://tw1.tw.rpi.edu/fuse/ username: lebot, dlm, james.mccusker, just your email id password: add "Fuse" to your username. (to your email username on the tetherless web pages - not necessarily user name on other rpi systems)

You can access the files via a remote drive:

todo - group look at the page above

Probeit   nick and hugo working intensely  there is an interface between webprobe and json


CAT system at PNNL

Colalb analysis toolkit

Paulo interested in making the data RDF.

csv2rdf4lod takes tabular data and creates RDF.

TODO: tim to send paragraph to paulo why transforming to RDF is good (by integrating it) and including provenance to give transparency.

TODO: Paulo to give tim URL of datafile with his "gridded data" example.

use case

This is the (spreadsheet-type) dataset:


and this is the map that was generated from that dataset:


The provenance question that I have in mind is the following:

If a scientist selects a point in the map, how can I go back to the map and identifies the entries that were used to plot that select piece of the map?

converting to rdf

The following query against http://logd.tw.rpi.edu/sparql will get you started on the RDF version of your data.

prefix wgs: <http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_pos#>
PREFIX conversion: <http://purl.org/twc/vocab/conversion/>
SELECT ?lat ?lon
  GRAPH <http://logd.tw.rpi.edu/source/trust-utep-edu/dataset/05206658643238425_gravityDataset/version/2010-Jun-08>  {
    [] wgs:lat ?lat ; wgs:lon ?lon .

There's provenance in the GRAPH above. That plus


should be all the provenance I have.

You can recreate the RDF production by running https://scm.escience.rpi.edu/svn/public/logd-csv2rdf4lod/data/source/trust-utep-edu/05206658643238425_gravityDataset/version/retrieve.sh
