About the Cartographic Materials project

Harvard will create native Linked Data descriptions for a selection of library cartographic resources including printed maps, atlases, digital geospatial datasets, and other cartographic information resources. 

Together with LD4L-Labs partners, Harvard will convert a set of Harvard Geospatial Library metadata records into linked data descriptions.

Harvard Project Proposal

April 2017 Project Update

For questions or comments, please contact Marc McGee, Geospatial Metadata Librarian, mmcgee (at) fas (dot) harvard (dot) edu

Deliverables
  • Set of natively cataloged BIBFRAME descriptions for a variety of cartographic resource types using the cartographic materials extension ontology.
  • Develop a set of mapping rules for Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) geospatial metadata standards to linked data.
  • A set of Harvard Geospatial Library metadata records converted to linked open data using the cartographic materials extension.
