Project deliverable Open Access
The present report is the first submitted iteration of a living document that will describe progress and evolvement of the AGINFRA PLUS data linking components, i.e. the services that will be incorporated in the overall AGINFRA PLUS architecture and be responsible for providing indicative links and relations between heterogeneous data assets, e.g. inclusion and relevance relations between publications, datasets and models, similarities in conceptualizations, etc. The current version of the deliverable focuses on the description of the core linking techniques commonly used for semantically rich data assets, as well as, the installation and deployment of a major data linking platform to serve as a showcase and baseline of the functionalities to be introduced in AGINFRA PLUS. It is expected that the usage of the data linking technologies will be significantly customized to the needs of the involved research communities, and will be tailored to their needs as well as their usability and easeof-use requirements from a relatively complex tool.
It is expected that, as the use cases are refined and executed, the data linking components will be accordingly updated and extended or modified. Additionally, general developments on the used baseline tools will be monitored and adopted if suitable for the purposes of AGINFRA PLUS. To this end, the report is treated as a living document, with regular submission to the EC of versions that report on significant changes in the respective prototypes.
