Abstract

Several semantic web approaches tend to address and solve the problem of integrating multidisciplinary rich content using Linked Open Data. Cultural heritage (CH) is a multidisciplinary domain that contains a massive heterogeneous content that varies distinctly by types and properties and is managed by different organizations. Various semantic web approaches have been proposed in the context of CH, and at multiple integration levels (local, national, international). These approaches focus on metadata schemata integration but give no significant importance to the representation of a tangible cultural heritage object, as an entity and the different parts that compose it. Knowing that the preservation and restoration of CH artifacts is an important goal in the CH field, we aim at modeling the content of this domain by representing the composition of a cultural heritage object and studying its evolution with time and space. In our present work, we illustrate the first part of the approach which is a parthood approach for the conceptual modeling of the composition of a tangible object in general, with the application on CH objects in particular. To do this, we introduce some parthood concepts and properties that are used for representing the composition mechanism. We limit the possible cases of part-whole relations in tangible objects to 7 cases and choose a corresponding logical/ontological part-whole relation(s) for it. This resulted in introducing also a hierarchy of tangible object types. We plan to build and implement our approach using OWL2 as the ontological language for our linked open data approach.
