Reflections on Provenance Ontology Encodings
As more data (especially scientific data) is digitized and put on the Web, the importance of tracking and sharing its provenance metadata grows. Besides capturing the annotation properties of data, provenance research also emphasizes interlinking relevant data. Therefore, it is desirable to make provenance metadata easy to access, share, reuse, integrate and reason with. To address these requirements, ontologies can be of use to encode expectations and agreements concerning provenance metadata reuse and integration. The Web is of use to support access and sharing. The Semantic Web, with its languages for representing terms and their descriptions,, such as RDFS and OWL, is of use for capturing expectations, agreements, and meaning. We are investigating best practices for providing Semantic Web encodings for provenance ontologies by analyzing a selection of popular Semantic Web provenance ontologies such as Open Provenance Model (OPM), Dublin Core (DC) Terms, and the Proof Markup Languag...
