Topicmap creation

After the web pages have been harvested and normalized, they are in a form that can be used to create an RDF topicmap. To create a topicmap, you need only pass to the script the name of the RDF file that was created by the harvester and redirect its output to a topicmap file. The topicmap file is also an RDF file.

bin/makeTopicmap.sh   data/Normalized_HTML.rdf   >   data/topicmap.rdf

A sample input file has been supplied so that you can see the output without having to run the harvester. The sample file, data/DC_Normalized_HTML.rdf, was harvested from the Dublin Core website.
