I think there's a slight inconsistency in some FOAF triples published
For example, see these triples from
DBpedia basically uses foaf:primaryTopic and foaf:page as inverse
properties, but the foaf spec says:
foaf:page -> http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/#term_page
The page property relates a thing to a document about that thing.
As such it is an inverse of the topic property, which relates a
document to a thing that the document is about.
foaf:primaryTopic -> http://xmlns.com/foaf/spec/#term_primaryTopic
The primaryTopic property relates a document to the main thing that
the document is about.
It is an inverse of the isPrimaryTopicOf property, which relates a
thing to a document primarily about that thing.
I think DBpedia should use either
- foaf:primaryTopic and foaf:isPrimaryTopicOf
- foaf:page and foaf:topic
What do you think?
