Culture Graph Interchange Format

As one building block of the federated acquisition of data for the Culture Knowledge Graph we propose an easy to use, lightweight interchange format based on for the harvesting of resources from data collections with key attributes (IRIs, names, dates and terms from controlled vocabularies). The Culture Graph Interchange Format (CGIF) has the added benefit of automatically making the data eligible for Google Dataset Search and to significantly improve the findability of websites and datasets through search engine optimization.
