Research Collaboration: QB4OLAP Enrichment of QB Data sets
This collaboration aims at enabling full-fledge OLAP-like analysis of Statistical Linked Open Data published on the Web.
At the moment, Statistical Linked Open Data are published using the RDF Data Cube Vocabulary (QB). However, QB lacks some essential metadata concepts (e.g., dimension levels representing data granularity) to support OLAP operations that typically aggregate data accordingly. The QB4OLAP vocabulary was proposed to extend QB and introduce the lacking metadata concepts for supporting OLAP. Thus, in this collaboration, we address the challenge of enriching existing QB data sets with these additional QB4OLAP metadata concepts.
- Detailed elaboration on the advantages of QB4OLAP over QB for OLAP-like analysis.
- Definition of a methodology for enriching existing QB data sets with QB4OLAP.
- Maximal possible automation of the enrichment process.
- Development of the related tools.
