[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: There is a growing interest into how we represent and share tagging data in collaborative tagging systems. Conventional tags, meaning freely created tags that are not associated with a structured ontology, are not naturally suited for collaborative processes, due to linguistic and grammatical variations, as well as human typing errors. Additionally, tags reflect personal views of the world by individual users, and are not normalised for synonymy, morphology or any other mapping. Our view is that the conventional approach provides very limited semantic value for collaboration. Moreover, in cases where there is some semantic value, automatically sharing semantics via computer manipulations is extremely problematic. This paper explores these problems by discussing approaches for collaborative tagging activities at a semantic level, and presenting conceptual models for collaborative tagging activities and folksonomies. We present criteria for the comparison of existing tag ontologies and discuss their strengths and weaknesses in relation to these criteria.

We implement the web-based application -int.ere.st -to realize this goal. int.ere.st collects in-formation related to tagging behaviors from Web 2.0 sites and offer direct access using Semantic Web technologies such as Linked Data. The application is avail-able at http://int.ere.st/.

We propose the architecture and then describe the prototype system based on the proposed architecture

A wide variety of technologies have been applied for supporting requirements of metadata management, ranging from the acquisition, creation, maintenance, retrieval, reuse, and publishing of metadata. We introduce essential concepts of a semantic document and implement the necessary functionality of metadata managing process. We also propose that three tasks are required to facilitate unambiguous representation of metadata in documents: using XMP to store metadata with the file itself, using ontologies to represent semantic concepts and using Social Web services to interact with web based resources. So our approach allows a user to interact and share the resources among a Desktop and Web more easily.
