Metagraph – a graph-based repository to connect arbitrary systems

Presenter(s): Jürgen Grupp (SWR)

Usually, data objects are linked across systems by identifiers, persisting identifiers from other systems enhance the value of local data, and data can be linked to create a network of information. The problem: the network of information and its value is not available to other systems. The idea: provide a registry of identifiers and their linking. This is the goal of Metagraph. The presentation introduces the basic concepts and shares implementation experiences with the graph database Apache Jena.
