Mapping F Entry to RDF

The mapping of the F Entry (i.e. Scheda F), the Italian content standard for cataloguing photographs, to RDF is based upon a subset of cataloguing elements described in the version 3.00 of the aforementioned standard, released by the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione (ICCD)

Although the F Entry may be mainly considered a national cataloguing reference, also international stakeholders can benefit from this mapping document, which is a set of shareable descriptive elements for photographs.

The purpose of this mapping is indeed to ensure semantic interoperability among data providers want to publish their structured data about photographs in RDF as Linked Open Data.

Therefore, this document provides a guidance to map metadata elements name to ontology terms as defined in well-known vocabularies, e.g., the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (CRM), and by means of ontologies that have been appropriately developed for describing specific aspects of the F Entry standard. Hence, wherever needed, to avoid a lack of information, best suitable terms from other vocabularies have been adopted or created for the scope.
