These are some of KurrawongAI’s recent projects:

TERN Triplestore Scaling

The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) measures terrestrial ecosystem attributes over time from continental scale to field sites at hundreds of locations throughout Australia and provides open, model-ready data that enables researchers to detect and interpret changes in land ecosystems.

This project aims to prove that a triplestore can be used for TERN’s central scientific data holdings which are already in Web Ontology Language (OWL) form but are currently not housed in one system.

Vocabulary system establishment for South Australia’s Department for Energy and Mining

This is an example of a common government vocabulary establishment project.

We took Excel spreadsheets of 6 vocabularies of dataset classification terms created by the Department and converted them into SKOS vocabularies.

We also then created 5 other SKOS vocabularies ourselves: several based on external vocabularies, one or two from scratch.

We then created an extension of the VocPub Profile’s vocabulary metadata to publish these 11 vocabularies with extended derivation and governance information.

Finally we established a Prez instance, branded for the Department, that published their vocabularies in both human- and machine-readable form for use by their staff, industry and cataloguing systems.

Use is ongoing and we continue to work on vocabulary and external system integration.

National Candidate Address Model

This project developed a candidate national address model for Australia and New Zealand, based on the ANZ ICSM Address Strategy 2035.

The model is an OWL model and it has been test implemented in both RDF and non-RDF (relational) systems.

Queensland Spatial Information Dataset Redesign

KurrawongAI has recently (June, 2022) completed modelling the Address and Place Names datasets of Queensland and their relationships to Cadastral information via a FrontierSI consortium with the following, outputs:

  • Queensland Spatial Information Supermodel
    • overarching framework linking the Address & Place Names models to Cadastral data
  • Candidate National Address Model
    • aligns with ICSM Addressing 2035 strategy, national & international models
    • provides graph and relational DB implementations of Qld testing data
    • used by the Linked Data version of the G-NAF soon to be online via a Geoscience Australia Foundational Spatial Data Framework initiative
  • QSI Place Names Model
    • A profile of the ANZ National Address Model and the Place Names Ontology for the representation of Place Names in Queensland

Semantic Web system scaling consulting

KurrawongAI will provide an analysis of the Semantic Web system’s used by the Terrestrial Ecosystems Research Network (TERN) to ensure they can scale to meet growing data and usage demands over July/September, 2022.

TERN are perhaps the most “Semantic Web native” government/educational unit in Australia and to work with them is an honour.

Direct Consulting

KurrawongAI staff are currently working on several projects that require direct consulting about Knowledge Graph systems and know-how to clients. These are often internal projects and can’t be listed here! Call us for details…
