Fields in the enrichment database
Records in the enrichment database consist of a number of fields.
Each enrichment can have its own data model, depending on what it represents and how it is used. The data in the enrichment database
can not be accessed directly, but only via services.
A record in the enrichment database has the following, flat structure:
Description of fields
Unique record number that is supposed to be identical or correspond to the identifier of the enriched object.
The type of enrichment. Currently not in use. The current enrichment types refer to news items and are 1) links to resources and information related to the object and 2) locations of news items.
Link to related information like a website or an image. The type of this relation is specified in the field "relType". When
accessing the enrichment database by the appropriate service this type is used as a name for the output field.
A label for the enrichment to be used for presentation purposes.
The type of relation, using a controlled vocabulary (sameAs, relation, hasVideo, hasImage). This type is used as a name for the field
containing the link.
Refinement of the relation type, meant for users to add a free text relation type like "marriedWith".
Type of information behind the link. It is preferred to use the mime type here. It is meant for applications to determine how an enrichment
is to be presented.
A name referring to the algorithm that was used to generate an enrichment. The references being used are described at references.html. The main purpose of these references is to be able to distinguish between enrichments obtained by different algorithms, because these are being improved continuously.
An indication for the probability that an enrichment, being an automatically generated link to a resource description, is correct.
Indication for the level of moderation and validation. Enrichments can be manipulated by different types of users with different authorization levels. The status field is used to make a distinction between automatically generated enrichments, user submitted enrichments and enrichments that are rejected or confirmed by different users.
Specifies whether the link refers to an information resource (IR) or a non-information resource (NIR).
For enrichments referring to a named entity in a text object the NEtype indicates whether the NE is actually linked to a resource and if so what type of object it is supposed to be. Currently this field is not in use.
Place name in the text object of an event. Used only in combination with street.
Street name in the text object of an event. Used only in combination with place.
- latitude, longitude
Geographical coordinates of a place or the location of an event in the text. Currently used in combination with place and street,
but not limited to that. It is mostly used for searching in a specific area or for showing the location on a map.
