Transforming XML to RDF(S) with Temporal Information

Dan Yang, Li Yan


The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a model for representing resources on the Web. With the widespread acceptance of RDF in various applications (e.g., knowledge graph), a huge amount of RDF data is being proliferated. Therefore, transforming legacy data resources into RDF data is of increasing importance. In addition, time information widely exists in various real-world applications and temporal Web data has been represented and managed in the context of temporal XML. In this paper, we concentrate on transformation of temporal XML (eXtensible Markup Language) to temporal RDF data. We propose the mapping rules and mapping algorithms which can transform the temporal XML Schema and document into temporal RDF Schema and temporal RDF triples, respectively. We illustrate our mapping approach with an example and implement a prototype system. It is demonstrated that our mapping approach is valid.
