The service provides semantically rich descriptive metadata about content available from Elsevier and from other sources across the Web. It makes available a catalog of resources expressed in Linked Data format suitable for use in Semantic Web applications, which define relationships among resources in complex ways meaningful to discovery and retrieval in varying contexts.
API methods support retrieval of RDF documents describing Elsevier resources as well as other resources from outside sources related to Elsevier's materials. Methods also provide access to a proprietary thesaurus of topic descriptors applied to resources cataloged within the service. Thesaurus descriptions include the topic identifier, preferred label, example text, and date proposed as well as the funding body proposing the term.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
Niels H. Christensen on Semantic Web Recipes presents how to load and parse linked-data and render in conjunction with Google Charts. He consumes a sample government API that supplies bus transportation data. This walkthrough formatted how-to is fit with code examples to aid the reader.
