This webinar presents the modeling and publishing process of the vocabularies for the UNESKOS project by applying Semantic Web technologies. More specifically, the vocabularies represented are the UNESCO Thesaurus and the Nomenclature for fields of Science and Technology. Both vocabularies are published as RDF datasets with a structure that allows its query and reuse according to the principles of Linked Open Data. The webinar will demonstrate the application of ISO-25964 standard to represent the UNESCO thesaurus using SKOS and the ISO-THES ontology. Technological solutions used for the project will also be discussed.
