I'm very interested in the difference between RDF and TM in terms of express
to use them together or merge them.
For example, suppose we want to express the following statement:
"The Hamlet is (was) written by Shakespeare."
and let me express it by using RDF and TM (please correct if the description
s are wrong).
RDF expression (namespace is ignored):
<topic id="hamlet"><instanceOf> ...</instanceOf> </topic>
<topic id="shakespeare"><instanceOf> ...</instanceOf></topic>
The TopicMap example provides roles for of two topics associated by "written
the RDF example cannot. However, I think it is possible to express them by d
domain and range constraints which is the RDF Schema vocabulary.
My question is what is the essential difference between RDF and TM...
