SW Application Examples (cont)

Web Site Content management (eg, at W3C)
  • information on various W3C documents are stored in RDF
  • the same information can be used to generate different “views”
    • eg, documents sorted on authors, translations on languages
  • different pieces of information can be combined
    • eg, translation data is different than status data
    • but they all refer to the same resources
    • hence RDF tools can combine them easily
  • no need for large database system...
