GRDDL Use Cases: Scenarios of extracting RDF data from XML documents - Working Group Note
The GRDDL Working Group at W3C has completed work on the Working Group
Note "GRDDL Use Cases: Scenarios of extracting RDF data from XML
documents" and is pleased to announce its publication the 6th of April 2007.
There are many dialects of XML in use by documents on the web. In
addition, recently two progressive encoding techniques, RDFa and
microformats, have emerged to overlay additional semantics onto valid
XHTML documents. While this breadth of expression is quite liberating,
it can prove to be a barrier to understanding across different domains
GRDDL is a mechanism for Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of
Languages; that is, for extracting RDF data from XML documents by way of
transformation algorithms, typically represented in XSLT and usually
producing RDF/XML documents.
This note collects a number of motivating use cases together with their
goals and requirements for extracting RDF data from XML documents.
