Welcome to the Modes data area!

Here you will find all the of standard terminologies published with Modes, available in a Linked Data format.

These resources have URLs which follow the pattern:

http://data.modes.org.uk/[application]/[filename]/id/[identifier]
e.g.
http://data.modes.org.uk/Termlist/SHIC_termlist/id/1.28

By default, these URLs resolve to a standard web page, but you can instead ask for them as RDF (primarily SKOS format), raw XML or JSON. You do this either by including a suitable MIME type in the Accept header of your HTTP request, or by adding '/rdf', '/xml' or '/json' into the URL, e.g.:
http://data.modes.org.uk/Termlist/SHIC_termlist/id/rdf/1.28

In order to tell you what resources are to be found here, there is the beginnings of a VoID service. For example, this URL lists all the resources within the Termlist application as RDF:
http://data.modes.org.uk/Termlist/void/rdf/

This URL gives information about a specific resource, again in RDF:
http://data.modes.org.uk/Termlist/SHIC_termlist/void/rdf/

A simple word search facility allows you to find relevant concepts, e.g.:
http://data.modes.org.uk/Termlist/SHIC_termlist/search/rdf/?q=painting
