10. Querying RDF: RDF as Data > 10.1. RDF and the Relational Data Model

RDF and the Relational Data Model

RDF and the relational data model are both metadata models, so it’s natural to want to see how the one can work with the other. Stanford took a look at different designs of tables for storing RDF data in an online paper located at http://www-db.stanford.edu/~melnik/rdf/db.html. With some differences based on data types and the ability to store multiple models, most of the schemas demonstrated were basically the same—store the model as triples, with or without support for additional information such as namespace or model identifier.

Tip

An up dated document comparing RDBMS and Semantic Web data is located at http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/reports/scalable_rdbms_mapping_report/.
