Presentation of the Datalift project


A catalyser for the Web of data

Datalift brings raw structured data coming from various formats (relational databases, CSV, XML, ...) to semantic data interlinked on the Web of Data. Datalift is an experimental research project funded by the French national research agency. Its goal is to develop a platform to publish and interlink datasets on the Web of data. Datalift will both publish datasets coming from a network of partners and data providers and propose a set of tools for easing the datasets publication process.

A few steps to data heaven

The project will provide tools allowing to facilitate each step of the publication process:

  • selecting ontologies for publishing data
  • converting data to the appropriate format (RDF using the selected ontology)
  • publishing the linked data
  • interlinking data with other data sources
