Abstract

http://www.w3.org/TR/void/ The Vocabulary of Interlinked Datasets (VoID) is concerned with metadata about RDF datasets. It is an RDF Schema vocabulary that provides terms and patterns for describing RDF datasets, and is intended as a bridge between the publishers and users of RDF data. VoiD descriptions can be used in many situations, ranging from data discovery to cataloging and archiving of datasets, but most importantly it helps users find the right data for their tasks.

Properties

Property: VoID:class

classThe rdfs:Class that is the rdf:type of all entities in a class-based partition.

URI:
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#class
Type:
owl:FunctionalProperty
Domain:
VoID:Dataset
Range:
rdfs:Class

Property: VoID:classPartition

class partitionA subset of a void:Dataset that contains only the entities of a certain rdfs:Class.

URI:
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#classPartition
Domain:
VoID:Dataset
Range:
VoID:Dataset
Superproperty:
VoID:subset

Property: VoID:classes

classesThe total number of distinct classes in a void:Dataset. In other words, the number of distinct resources occuring as objects of rdf:type triples in the dataset.

URI:
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#classes
Domain:
VoID:Dataset
Range:
xsd:integer

Property: VoID:dataDump

Data DumpAn RDF dump, partial or complete, of a void:Dataset.

URI:
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#dataDump
Domain:
VoID:Dataset
Range:
rdfs:Resource

Property: VoID:distinctObjects

distinct objectsThe total number of distinct objects in a void:Dataset. In other words, the number of distinct resources that occur in the object position of triples in the dataset. Literals are included in this count.

URI:
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#distinctObjects
Domain:
VoID:Dataset
Range:
xsd:integer

Property: VoID:distinctSubjects

distinct subjectsThe total number of distinct subjects in a void:Dataset. In other words, the number of distinct resources that occur in the subject position of triples in the dataset.

URI:
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#distinctSubjects
Domain:
VoID:Dataset
Range:
xsd:integer

Property: VoID:documents

number of documentsThe total number of documents, for datasets that are published as a set of individual documents, such as RDF/XML documents or RDFa-annotated web pages. Non-RDF documents, such as web pages in HTML or images, are usually not included in this count. This property is intended for datasets where the total number of triples or entities is hard to determine. void:triples or void:entities should be preferred where practical.
