Knowledge Graph: tyrolean mining documents 15th and 16th century

Hiebel, Gerald; Gruber-Tokić, Elisabeth; Peralta Friedburg, Milena; Danthine, Brigit

The dataset contains a Knowledge Graph (.nq file) of two historical mining documents: “Verleihbuch der Rattenberger Bergrichter” ( Hs. 37, 1460-1463) and “Schwazer Berglehenbuch” (Hs. 1587, approx. 1515) stored by the Tyrolean Regional Archive, Innsbruck (Austria). The user of the KG may explore the montanistic network and relations between people, claims and mines in the late medieval Tyrol. The core regions concern the districts Schwaz and Kufstein (Tyrol, Austria).

The ontology used to represent the claims is CIDOC CRM, an ISO certified ontology for Cultural Heritage documentation. Supported by the Karma tool the KG is generated as RDF (Resource Description Framework). The generated RDF data is imported into a Triplestore, in this case GraphDB, and then displayed visually. This puts the data from the early mining texts into a semantically structured context and makes the mutual relationships between people, places and mines visible.

Both documents and the Knowledge Graph were processed and generated by the research team of the project “Text Mining Medieval Mining Texts”. The research project (2019-2022) was carried out at the university of Innsbruck and funded by go!digital next generation programme of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
