Adaptation/Mapping of the Swiss Performing Arts Data Model to Wikidata[edit]

Further data modelling approaches have been described in the context of concrete data ingests, see for example:

Data modelling issues that have been encountered in the course of these ingests are being documented on the following page:

Existing Data Models / Ontologies outside Wikidata[edit]

Data Model Publisher Version/URL Description
Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Final Report (amended as of 2009) FRBR is not an actual standard, but a study report regarding the functional requirements for bibliographic records. These requirements are generally used as a basis for the development of library cataloguing standards. The FRBR study report comes along with a data model for bibliographic metadata.
FRBR – object-oriented (FRBRoo) International Working Group on FRBR and CIDOC CRM Harmonisation Version 2.4 (November 2015), (all releases) Object-oriented definition and mapping from FRBR, FRAD and FRSAD. FRBRoo complements FRBR by defining additional classes, including classes that are highly relevant in the performing arts context, such as F20 Performance Work, F25 Performance Plan, or F31 Performance. Unlike FRBR it thus allows to model the double work structure typical for the performing arts domain (cf. Doerr et al. 2008).
European Collected Library of Artistic Performance, Performing Arts Vocabulary (ECLAP) DISIT Lab, University of Florence, Italy Version 1.0 The ECLAP vocabulary has been created in connection with the platform of the same name that is used as a content aggregator for Europeana covering the performing arts domain. It defines classes and properties used for the description of multimedia content, with a main focus on describing media objects, the modelling of the users of the platform and its content, as well as on the annotation of media objects.
AusStage Data Models AusStage Website (accessed on 9 Sept. 2017) Data model used for the AusStage database, covering works, events, contributors, organisations, venues, and resources.
Pina Bausch Archive Ontology - unpublished? (see Thull et al. 2015 for a summary description) Ontology used in the context of the Pina Bausch Archiv.
Carnegie Hall Data Model Carnegie Hall Version June 2017 Data Model used by the archives of Carnegie Hall to publish their events data as Linked Open Data. The data covers all sorts of events that took place at Carnegie Hall, including theatre and dance performances, concerts, circus performances, political meetings, etc.
Data Model for the Swiss Performing Arts Platform Swiss Archive of the Performing Arts / Bern University of Applied Sciences Draft Version 0.51 (September 2017) Data model used by the Swiss Theatre Collection and the Swiss Dance Archive in view of the development of and migration to their new data platform.
