The Linked Media Framework is an easy-to-setup server application that bundles together some key open source projects to offer some advanced services for linked media management.
LMF Usage Scenarios
The LMF has been designed with a number of typical use cases in mind. We currently support the following tasks out of the box:
- Publishing Legacy Data as Linked Data: whenever you have legacy datasets in CSV, Excel, XML or similar and want to publish it as Linked Data, the LMF framework is the right tool for you. Follow this guide to see how.
- Building Semantic Search over your Data: you have data in some format and want to enrich it with content from the Linked Data Cloud to provide advanced Semantic Search? Follow this guide!
- Using a SKOS Thesaurus for Information Extraction: you have a custom thesaurus and want to analyse and automatically interlink content based on its concepts? See how to do it in this guide.
Target groups are a in particular casual users who are not experts in Semantic Web technologies but still want to publish or work with Linked Data, e.g. in the Open Government Data and Linked Enterprise Data area.
I believe that over a period of time many of these use cases may end up being the attributes of modern websites. A look at the architecture and list of modules gives you a sense of the future of websites that provide rich information.
