This is the third eccenca Corporate Memory release in 2017. The highlights of this release are the new hierarchical mapping feature as well as the addition of more dataset types. With hierarchical mappings our users are now able to create mappings from flat or nested structures into a hierarchy of classes connected with object properties and annotated with values.
The new mapping editor in the Dataset module provides a much better usability for creating and editing mapping rules. With a convenient tree navigation the user has a clear overview of the mapping hierarchy and can easily add, edit and remove object and value mapping rules. This allows for creation of semantically rich RDF graphs out of legacy datasets in just a few minutes.
Furthermore, Corporate Memory supports more dataset types than before. Besides CSV files and virtual datasets, the following types can now be used as a dataset resource: SPARQL endpoint (remote), RDF graph, ORC file, JDBC endpoint and Hive endpoint.
