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

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

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

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

Start light and build greater complexity incrementally. Don't build the end all be all system in version 1.0. project mgmt 101

Well exactly. Not least so you can benefit asap compared to the resources required to build and populate the full acronym-laden 'LOD' thing

so I can see some useful rules of thumb coming out of this …

Most of it should be common sense, but the mystique around LOD means it's sometimes lost, or people think there's just one true LOD way
