ARIADNE: Linked Open Data (LOD) in practicePublished on: September 21, 2016
This paper presents web services developed within the "Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Dataset Networking in Europe" (ARIADNE). The project is funded under the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme. The web services are not the only result of the project but are among the most important ones. The first to be mentioned is the ARIADNE portal providing the main point of access for, on the one hand, searching and browsing and, on the other hand, processing and publishing archaeological datasets online. As a supporting tool ARIADNE metadata registry has been used to survey currently used data standards and metadata schemas. In addition ARIADNE Visual Media Services have been developed to provide easy publication and presentation on the web of complex visual media assets. The following services are presented: 3D models, RTI images and High-resolution images.
