Semantic Web Technologies
All of the Transforming Musicology research topics, and all the mini-projects, present research activities that generate data that could be reused – whether by the authors or by others – in valuable, unpredictable ways, provided that data could be published in a way that supports such reuse. Through collaboration with the other researchers, and observation of their working practices, we observed how open sharing of data and research workflows might be smoothly achieved. Using semantic web technologies, we also developed ontologies to model some of the data structures used and explored ways of visualising and analysing the data.
