Thinking about 'lightweight', 'heavyweight' models for linked open data in cultural heritage - what real world LOD examples do you know of?

linked jazz, LoC linked data, VIAF, do we count IIIF?

Do you know of projects built around LoC or VIAF LOD?

LoC and VIAF are vocabularies, so I doubt there are projects built on them other than for normalization or coreferencing

they aren’t vocabs? They are linked data representations of people/subjects/etc.

VIAF is a coreferenced library name authority system with very little biographical information. You can get a lot more from wikidata

Sure - I didn't say otherwise. I was just answering 's Q

I'm not sure I understand her question. What is"lightweight" and what is "heavyweight"?

Lightweight = , Nomisma, , . Heavyweight = CIDOC CRM, which is why there aren't many real world examples

not sure what meant by light/heavy weight. Your interpretation is (I think?) about complexity of model/ontology?

Yeah, that's my interpretation. Taxonomies by definition are usually lightweight if they're authored in SKOS

(she is the cat's mother!) Light/heavy is work in progress idea for LOD that's easier or harder to build into GLAM work

and those examples do map pretty well onto what I mean. Use LOD identifiers for vocab records = easy; CIDOC CRM = hard

not the bit about light and heavy weight LOD - she never expressed an opinion on that as far as I remember

but there are other factors that might affect this significantly beyond complexity of modelling?

like how easy is it to find equivalence with entities in the LOD

Besides intellectual complexity in CRM modeling is the elephant in the room that the graph complexity needs a shit ton of resources

I mean both server infrastructure and software development ability. Complex model needs complex validation

Answering around radiotherapy, so in haste... Light fits into existing collections management systems, with a tweak or 2. Heavy - new build
