Presentation Tabular Topic Maps [ppt] 2003-10-20
This presentation is an overview for the eGovernment:
  • Cogitative Topic Map web sites (CTW) framework
  • Tabular Topic Maps framework
  • Semantic Web Glasses
  • Contextual Topic Map Constraints and Concurrent Characteristics Expressions
Presentation Topic Map Solutions for Kodak Digital Camera Accessories [html] [pdf] at XML Europe 2003 Conference. 2003-05-05
This presentation shows how we used Topic Map based solutions to build, organize and maintain Kodak digital cameras accessories web site. The chosen approach did not require software investment. Excel, available and familiar spreadsheet software, served as an affordable and easy to use Topic Map GUI editor and repository.
>Excel worksheets represent different plains of relationships that are completely independent until the processing begins. An initial set of topic map documents is generated from applicable worksheets and by spidering a corpus of XML content files. Topic maps are merged based on the topic naming constraint or subject merging rule. Finally, XSLT drives generation of JHTML server pages, SVG and SQL scripts from Topic Map source code (CTW framework). We also show how we used Topic Map Ontology schema to calculate the difference between two Topic Map documents. This is also XSLT-driven. The difference topic map controls which web pages should be updated, which lowers server load and improves performance.
Because the framework is Topic Map based it was very easy to satisfy new requirements and add new planes of relationships.
Presentation Hands-on Topic Maps Ontology Modeling and Validation [ppt] at XML Europe 2003 Conference. 2003-05-05
This presentation shows how an arbitrary Topic Map document can be translated into an RDF representation so that it can be validated against a DAML-OIL ontology. Layered approach allows using DAML for Topic Map validation. We introduce notion of Contextual Topic Map Constraints and Concurrent Characteristics Expressions We go beyond DAML and introduce notions of Contextual Topic Map Constraints and Concurrent Characteristics Expressions.
Presentation Tabular Topic Map repository framework [html] at Extreme Markup Languages 2002 Conference. 2002-08-05
This presentation shows how standard spreadsheet software, such as Excel, can be used as an enterprise Topic Map repository and an affordable and easy to use Topic Map GUI editor. We show our framework conventions for representing vocabularies, topic characteristics (occurrences, associations, and base names), characteristics, scopes, and other Topic Map constructs. This framework was used to build, organize and maintain Kodak’s ‘Digital Camera Accessories’ web site. Excel worksheets represent different planes of relationships that are independent until the processing begins. Transformation flow is controlled by instructions within the Excel workbook.
Cogitative Topic Map Websites
Chapter Creating and Maintaining Enterprise Web Sites with Topic Maps and XSLT [book] [xhtml] in XML Topic Maps Book. 2002-04-02
HTML offers excellent ways to deliver browsable information via the Web. As a web site grows and turns into a web portal, developers are faced with growing challenges of enforcing link integrity and maintaining an enterprise look-and-feel standards and navigational order. Tasks that once were simple can turn into laborious and convoluted processes as the information resource base of the site expands. However, enterprise web site maintenance can be robust and straightforward. This chapter (#9) shows that using Topic Map as the "source code" or "sitemap" of a website offers convenience, power, reliability, and rapid reconfigurability to the maintainers of large, complex websites.
Presentation Building Adaptive Classificators with Topic Maps at XML'2000 Conference. 2000-12-06
This presentation describes application of Topic Maps concepts to building Adaptive Classifiers. Classification expressed in Topic Maps enables to maintain rich multi - hierarchical indexes and establish vertical and horizontal associations on all levels. The demonstration includes image browser able to represent rich taxonomy of professional graphics. Demo application enables browsing faceted taxonomy of Art images. It accommodates different perspectives via add-hock navigation patterns.
This presentation describes Cogitech's Cogitative Web Sites (CTW) content publishing framework that uses Topic Maps and XSLT. It shows how one can easily integrate two different CTW Web Sites by simply merging their source Topic Maps. Source Topic Map aggregates content from the universe of WWW resources, and, at the same time, dynamically governs website navigation and site map.
  • topics generate web pages
  • occurrence and association types control format and layout of content building blocks
  • scope controls content visibility

Presentation DAML and Quantum Topic Maps at Knowledge Technologies'2002 Conference. 2002-03-15
This presentation describes new approach that result in a more compact Topic Maps representation. Quantum Topic Maps leverage DAML-OIL to enrich Topic Maps expressiveness. In addition, one can use freely available DAML-OIL validators to validate Topic Maps expressed in QTM format. Presentation describes "Quantum" effects in Topic Maps and outlines Quantum Topic Maps Processing Model derived from TMPM4.
This presentation describes XTM to RDF translator (XTM2RDF), which is now available online. It uses XSLT to translate topic map documents expressed in the XTM syntax into RDF. The translation process respects the TMPM4 parsing model for XTM. XTM2RDF supports inner and external traversals in RDF and XTM documents. XTM2RDF Translator XTM-enable RDF applications; on the other end, topic maps community can use RDF graph visualizers to view topic map graphs.
