Data Models

  • SeaLiT Ontology - An extension of CIDOC-CRM for the modelling of Maritime History information.

    The SeaLiT Ontology is a formal ontology intended to facilitate the integration, mediation and interchange of heterogeneous information related to maritime history. It aims at providing the semantic definitions needed to transform disparate, localised information sources of maritime history into a coherent global resource. It also serves as a common language for domain experts and IT developers to formulate requirements and to agree on system functionalities with respect to the correct handling of historical information.

    The definition of the SeaLiT Ontology, together with its RDFS implementation, are available through Zenodo (under a creative commons license): https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5964240

    The (resolvable) namespace of the ontology is: http://www.sealitproject.eu/ontology/
