Querying Linked Data

Ready to harness the power of linked data but don’t know where to start? This series of webinars will move you from a bystander to an active participant in the new frontier of linked data.

This event has passed.

Participants learned a basic overview of linked data principles and then dove into techniques and tools for consuming and producing linked data.

Participants learned how to manipulate linked data graphs using several tools and programming languages, including Ruby, PHP, JavaScript and SPARQ. RDFa, JSON-LD serializations, framing and how JSON-LD can be used to easily publish linked data was also reviewed. Participants also learned how to use framing to publish an existing JSON document as linked data and how to add RDFa to an HTML document.

Participants learned how to:

  • explore a new data set or graph using SPARQL,
  • select particular triple statements and/or properties based on regular expressions,
  • select values for literal properties based on language tags, and
  • use SPARQL CONSTRUCT and DESCRIBE to create graphs.
