The Smart Data Models Program does not define canonically and uniquely the terms used in the data models. There are many ontologies and vocabularies providing solutions to this issue.
For those users of linked data solutions, every subject includes a context.jsonld file (see example) with long IRI for the terms used in the data models. Besides this, the IRI provided are in fact URL to pages with additional information about the term (see example).
not only this but also two services are available on the tools menu on the front page.
- Merging several contexts and detecting conflicts. (for merging several context from different subjects)
- Mapping a context with external ontologies. (mapping a local context from SDM to any external ontology). These are the ones available but more could be easily created on demand.
But when mapping an existing open and adopted standard now it is possible to customize the context generated by using a new file notes_context.jsonld (see this empty example) at the root of the subject. It will replace the automatic IRI for a term with the customized one.
