Quick Start with New Data
From OSF Wiki
In first setting up or expanding an OSF (open semantic framework) instance, configuring for and loading data is always a major component. This Quick Start guide is meant to be a short supplement to the more detailed dataset workflows.
Step 1: Map Out Game Plan
- Read essential background materials about datasets; key background documents are listed below
- Define datasets
- See the Datasets: Identify document
- Define dataset attributes and structure
- Review existing ontology
- Plan out approach
- Define needed concepts (classes) and attributes (properties) in relation to the datasets anticipated.
Step 2: Enhance or Extend Ontology
- Add your new ontology classes
- See the Adding an Ontology Concept using Protégé document
- Add your new properties or attributes
- See the section on Adding a New Attribute
- Test your extended ontology
- See for the using reasoners with Protégé document.
Step 3: Prepare and Load Datasets
- Be familiar with the irON specification, specifically the commON (CSV) specification
- You may also want to check out the CommON Case Study
- Prepare up your full datasets, including linkage schema
- See the Datasets: Prepare Small (commON) Datasets document
- Submit your datasets to the OSF-Drupal Import module
- See the Datasets: Import Dataset Files document
- If errors are shown at time of import, revise and re-import.
Step 4: Refine and Care and Feed Ontology
- You are encouraged to add to the metadata and
altLabels(especially) for your existing ontology as you work with it. structOntology is the proper tool for this job.
- See further the Individual OSF-Drupal Ontology (structOntology) Tool manual.
