Semantic Framework Outline

From a Data User Perspective

Data users interact with the Semantic Framework in several ways, each of which may involve an automated or manual process. Here are just a few basic examples of how a data user might take advantage of the Semantic Framework.

These functions allow users to provide:

  • Visualizations of data, including the relationships between datum
  • Discovery of new data sources, especially using relationships defined in ontologies
  • Data processing using stored ontologies
  • Aggregation of data from multiple sources using the Semantic Framework as an interoperability mediator
  • Data archiving enabled through Semantic Framework interoperability

From a Data Provider Perspective

Data providers feed the Semantic Framework with content, providing ontologies and related data using a variety of automated and manual processes. Some examples include the following.
