Grokking Triples from Spreadsheets
Sean notes that there are lots of triples in spreadsheets. Yup. After my Aug 2003 trip to Montreal for Extreme, I used gnumeric as an RDF authoring tool to collect all the gas receipts and such; then the Makefile has this stanza to convert it to RDF:
triplog.rdf: triplog.xml grokSheet.xsl $(XSLTPROC) --novalid grokSheet.xsl triplog.xml >$@
I haven't scrubbed the data, so this is somewhat incomplete as a demo.
Yes, this is another GRDDL style transformation.
Hmm... where are timbl's slides on RDF, trees, tables, and such?
