The ontology of agent relationships (AgRelOn) defines relations of persons to other persons and to organisations, since agents (persons, organisations) and their interconnections are important in the cultural heritage domain. AgRelOn is developed to foster uniform cataloging as well as semantic searchability of and via relations between agents. Therefore, a general set of nearly 70 relationhip types is provided. AgRelOn discerns private acquaintanceship, group affiliation, correspondence, occupational contact, kinship, spiritual contact, and vital/lethal contact. For these kinds of relations more specific sub-relations are formulated. Meta statements are supported to obtain transparency of reliability and provenance as well as validity period of facts. The modelled relations are determined on the one hand by exemplary knowledge base searches, on the other hand by available data sources. Hence, the model consciously is incomplete and pertinent to a cultural area and period.
FOAF is a project devoted to linking people and information using the Web. Regardless of whether information is in people's heads, in physical or digital documents, or in the form of factual data, it can be linked. FOAF integrates three kinds of network: social networks of human collaboration, friendship and association; representational networks that describe a simplified view of a cartoon universe in factual terms, and information networks that use Web-based linking to share independently published descriptions of this inter-connected world. FOAF does not compete with socially-oriented Web sites; rather it provides an approach in which different sites can tell different parts of the larger story, and by which users can retain some control over their information in a non-proprietary format.
