Siderean Software’s Seamark

Siderean Software’s Seamark is a sophisticated application providing resources for intelligent site querying and navigation. The company makes use of a faceted metadata search and classification scheme for describing page characteristics. It is intended for larger, commercial applications and web sites, providing the infrastructure necessary for this type of search capability.

Tip

Siderean Software’s web site is at http://siderean.com. I was given access to a beta version of the software for the Windows environment at the time of this writing.

By faceted metadata, Siderean is talking about defined properties or characteristics of objects. Seamark allows searching on variations of this type of data. Once the Seamark repository is installed, it’s quite simple to load data into it from external RDF/XML files. The data in these files is then combined with existing data in the Seamark database. There is no specialized Seamark RDF Schema, which means the RDF/XML can be from any vocabulary.
