Dear SKOS Shuttle visitor

Thank you for your interest in SKOS Shuttle.

SKOS Shuttle was developed and (privately) financed by Semweb LLC.

It is ADS free and it is free to use (inside some limits) as well as definitely low price, compared with other similar best-in-class tools.

In order to develop it to a more mature degree, to get more functionalities, a better usability, but also to keep on financing its location, maintenance and the electricity needed to operate it, Semweb is seeking for funding.

Please consider, it is not just a toy from the internet to use and throw because it is just free or at low cost. Semweb decided to make it low cost in order to allow for a low threshold for students and so many interested institutions (private, educational or NGO) as possible.

The idea behind SKOS Shuttle is supporting enterprises in projects, where you and Semweb can further grow together.

SKOS Shuttle was and is improved thanks to its user's will, skills, time and intention to cooperate/communicate with Semweb every wish but also every issue.

->Thank you for considering this before you start using SKOS Shuttle.<-

Semweb can guarantee an anonymous secured access, but it is basically interested in your experience and would prefer the "personal touch" to the anonymous access.
Thesaurus Management as a (collaborative) Service
Or call us

Thesauri are controlled vocabularies whose concepts are connected through relations. They build a systematic representation of domains. They are polyhierarchies where a concept is related to its synonyms, broader or narrower concepts. In the linked data space thesauri are ideally organized according to the SKOS model. This allows for standard access / navigation to concepts and their interrelated concepts. Some examples of thesauri can be found in Eurovoc, Jurivoc, GETTY AAT, MEsH, and STW. The use of thesauri in enterprises empowers concept maintenance and allows for fast and precise search processes. A further use of thesauri is in the corpus analysis, where - starting from a text corpus and a thesaurus - relevant information on term frequency, distribution and potentially new concepts for the same thesaurus are computed. Furthermore thesauri allow in linked data spaces the precise interlinking between key concepts of different external thesauri.

SKOS Shuttle is a service which enables you to work with SKOS thesauri in remote.

SKOS Shuttle is a multi-tenant / multi-user Thesaurus Management Service implemented in J2EE running on the latest Apache Tomcat.
It uses proven methods for accessing SKOS thesauri via SPARQL queries. Thesaurus RDF data are imported into SKOS Shuttle and are physically hosted on the Semweb LLC own RDF platform and/or RDF repositories of your choice, integrated remotely via REST HTTP/SSL. SKOS Shuttle allows you to build a smart search engine using its API to search and retrieve concept data to refine results.
