GOLD Versions


In addition to the HTML display of our ontology, each version of GOLD can also be downloaded in several other formats:
XML:
A basic XML version of the GOLD ontology listing each concept with its label and definition. Other attributes given for each concept include the concept's canonical URI and reference to its parent in order to provide a hierarchical representation of the ontology tree.
OWL:
GOLD was originally developed with the semantic web in mind and can be used as a vocabulary for describing linguistic data in RDF format. An example implementation of GOLD that uses more of OWL's ontological features is being maintained by Scott Farrar at the University of Washington (see: http://code.google.com/p/goldcomm/).
