CRM Mapping

  • got from CRM site: crm_mappings, tools.
  • tool versions (please note that older releases may have stuff that is not in earlier releases!)
  • saved to \\ontonas\all-onto\Projects\culture\mapping\CRM-mapping
  • [^Mapping a Data Structure to the CIDOC Conceptual Reference Model (2002).pdf]: presentation
  • [^Mapping Language for Information Integration (FORTH TR385 Dec2006).pdf]: paper describing the process

This is all about slicing, dicing and combining source paths to target paths.

Proposes a conceptual structure for describing mappings, in the form of XML schema:


Open source ETL framework.

  • Used extensively by Onto's LifeSci group: see [LIFESKIM:Talend] intro, [Tutorial]
  • Proposed for use by FP7 SME [CG:Linked City]
  • Used by UC Berkeley for a CollectionSpace deployment

Vaso and Deyan Peychev swear by it. Includes:

  • GUI for creating and Framework for executing complex ETL flows, with exception catching, document routing, etc
  • GUI for creating mappings, eg from XML to RDF.
    I'll talk to Deyan on Sep 30 whether the TalenD mapper can implement CRM path slicing & dicing


Data conversion toolkit used by FP7 Athena to contribute to Europeana


The platform includes:

  • Aggregator toolkit, including SIP Creator
    SIP means "Submission Information Package", which is a name for the metadata sets that Europeana ingests through OAI-PMH
    • Graphical Metadata Mapping and storage Tool (may be useful for Rembrandt & Cranach data conversion)
      Can source any XML. Generates the "obvious" mappings. Scriptable using Groovy and a simple domain-specific-language for splitting and joining fields, etc. Excellent movie
    • Metadata Repository accessed via OAI-PMH (Open Archives Initiative - Protocol for Metadata Harvesting)
    • Integrated Solr/Lucene Search Engine, Open-Search API
    • Persistent Identifier Management
    • Dynamic Thumbnail Caching
    • Source XML Data Analyser
    • Data Set Upload and Remote Management
  • Web Portal
    Make digital objects discoverable by the rest of the world through a web portal with powerful search features. The portal has an integrated multilingual Content Management System and interface support for 28 European languages and role-based User Management.
    • Web Portal
      • Simple & Advanced search
      • Summary Views as Grid or List
      • Facet-based result drill-down
      • Related Items
      • Detailed Metadata Result View
        Interface Support for 28 European Languages
    • User Management
      • Create and manage users
      • Custom views based on user-roles
    • Integrated CMS
      • Create pages and custom content
      • Upload images
      • Create custom menus
      • Simple versioning system
    • Annotation Component for Objects, Images, Movies and Maps (donated by Austrian Institute of Technology, full integration planned in 2011)


CultureCloud is a sort of transnational Europeana aggregator that wants to do a lot of things that would be important for us.
E.g. terminology mapping, cross-linking of objects, crowd-sourcing (many people being able to edit), Europeana publishing...
