Data packages are sets of data represented using VIVO RDF in one of the supported VIVO RDF file formats – Turtle (.ttl), Triples (.nt), Notation3 (.n3) or RDF-XML (.rdf) Data packages are typically produced as semi-static – they can be loaded into VIVO and updated as needed. Data packages typically deliver statements about entities outside the management of the particular VIVO.
VIVO manages data packages by creating a new graph for each package, containing the asserted triples for the data package and named with the name of the data package file. The VIVO inferencer creates inferred triples for the data packages and stored the inferred triples in the inference graph. When changes are made to the data package file, the VIVO inferencer must be run to bring the inference graph up to date with the changes made in the asserted graph for the data package.
An example of a data package would be the Grid data, representing the research organizations of the world. This data set, maintained by Digital Science, contains more than 65,000 university, research institutes, funding agencies and other organizations involved in research across the world. The data set contains the official name and alternate names as well as abbreviations of names of the each organization, its geographic location, its type, date of founding, parent, child and affiliated organizations, as well as persistent identifiers for the organization. The data is available as a data package for VIVO at https://github.com/openvivo/grid-rdf
