h1. 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\!)
-- [CidocXML2RDFv6|] (Sep 2011): includes CRMdig ontology for Digitalization (3D COFORM)
-- [MappingTool (v 1.1)|] (Oct 2010): includes GUI tool for mapping, generates XML of mapping(?) , implements the mapping process(?)
-- [mapping_tool_4_12_02|] (Apr 2002)
- 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:

h1. TalenD

Open source ETL framework.
- Used extensively by Onto's LifeSci group: see [LIFESKIM:Talend] intro, [Tutorial|LIFESKIM:Tutorial - Talend Semantic ETL 0.2]
- Proposed for use by FP7 SME [CG:Linked City]
- Used by UC Berkeley for a [CollectionSpace|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

h1. MINT

Data conversion toolkit used by FP7 Athena to contribute to Europeana

h1. Delving

- The source of Europeana conversion tools was donated
- a group of Europeana core developers founded Delving ([]), to continue developing the source and offer professional services
- open source on github: []
- "currently being adopted by a wide variety of Cultural Heritage Institutions across Europe. The development and the current feature set would not have been possible without [the support and contributions by these organisations|]"

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

--- 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)

h2. CultureCloud

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...
- Don’t yet seem to have a web-site.
- Applied under FP7 PSP (call finished Jul 31), we'll see if it gets funding.
- Found about it from the CIDOC conference that's just over: [] p.11
