The following page is focusing on presenting the data modelling issues and data cleasing reports.

Cases of Problematic Data Modelling[edit]

1. Issue: Director/manager for a venue (only Flanders Art Institute)[edit]

Description: A venue can not be managed by a director or operated by an organisation.
Data impact: only for Flanders Art Institute: 7 records (3.10.2019)
Data query: Link to the query
Proposed sulution: All director/manager (P1037) statements should be removed from the venue items and be applied to the related corporate body items instead.
Status: pending

2. Issue: List of theatres (venues), with their various type statements[edit]

Description: Incorrect use of the property instance of (P31)
Data impact: only Flanders Art Institute venues - 697 records (3.10.2019)
Data query: Link to the query
Proposed sulution:
Status: pending

3. Issue: Music festival[edit]

Description: How to model festivals? - If the “festival” also acts as production company or organizer, we need at least two distinct items - one for the event series, and another one for the organization. - See: (this item currently combines the two aspects, which is problematic).
Data impact: 34 records affected
Data query Link to query
Proposed sulution: not available
Status: pending

4. Issue: Auditorium and stage refer to the same item[edit]

Description: Should auditorium (Q230752) or stage (Q194428) be used to refer to the specific room where a performance was given? Should the two be merged?
Data impact: not available
Proposed sulution: Stage and auditorium should be managed separately. The data merge implicit that a new item will be created. Comparing the two definitions, I identified that there is no connection between auditorium and stage. From an ontology perspective, correlation of stage is stronger to the performance than the auditorium.
Status: in process

3. Issue:[edit]

Description: Example
Data impact: Example
Proposed sulution: Example
