The RDF, for Resource Description Framework, is the basic language for semantic web. It proposes a graph model to formally describe web resources and their metadata, in order to allow automatic processing of these descriptions.
The ontologies and vocabularies used by data.archives-ouvertes are the following :
- a documentation: presentation of the triplestore and the various data schemas
- a SPARQL endpoint: Interface of interrogation of the knowledge base structured in RDF
- downloading of the content of the triplestore: monthly zip archive of the RDF data
