Mapping the ARIADNE Catalog Data Model to CIDOC CRM: Bridging Resource Discovery and Item-Level Access


ARIADNE is a European project aiming to integrate existing archaeological research infrastructures, services and distributed datasets, and to develop new technologies and tools to improve archaeological research methodology. The ARIADNE registry contains information about resources available among the various partners of the project and the metadata repository, which contains item level information of these resources. In order to provide an advanced discovery mechanism combining both item level and registry level information we propose a mapping from the ARIADNE Catalog Data Model, the model of the ARIADNE registry, to the CIDOC CRM, the underlying model of the metadata repository. The paper will present the requirements that led to the choice of different models for the registry and the metadata repository, will elaborate on the mapping, and will propose an integrated interface for information discovery and presentation.
