Drexel students, professional staff and faculty are invited to watch this DCMI webinar at the Metadata Research Center (MRC).
This webinar provides an introduction to SPARQL, a query language for RDF. Users will gain hands on experience crafting queries, starting simply, but evolving in complexity. These queries will focus on coinage data in the SPARQL endpoint hosted by http://nomisma.org: numismatic concepts defined in a SKOS-based thesaurus and physical specimens from three major museum collections (American Numismatic Society, British Museum, and Münzkabinett of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin) linked to these concepts. Results generated from these queries in the form of CSV may be imported directly into Google Fusion Tables for immediate visualization in the form of charts and maps.
Contact Adrian Ogletree, Research Project Manager, (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. You may also independently register for the Webinar here.
