LOTERRE - Linked Open TERminology REsources

What architecture is supporting Loterre?

The architecture of Loterre is based on a triplestore connected with a browsing tool and searchable via a SPARQL interface and an API.


To offer its users access to terminologies, Loterre calls upon various open-source tools:

  • a Jena-Fuseki Apache triplestore
  • Skosmos, to allow resources to be browsed on line
  • The Skosmos REST API to allow a distant software agent to query and recover data
  • YASGUI for the formulation of SPARQL queries
  • ezArk to simplify the distribution of ARK identifiers where necessary
