Semantic web logo

Scalar is based on the semantic web standard RDF, and leverages widely accepted ontologies like Dublin Core, SIOC, and ArtSTOR.

Scalar’s content model is based on RDF (Resource Description Framework), one of the foundational standards of the semantic web, and most of its content relationships are expressed using widely accepted ontologies and standards such as Dublin Core, Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities, and ArtSTOR. HTML5 media handling is supported wherever possible. Any content element in Scalar can be enhanced with custom Dublin Core metadata that can be accessed both within Scalar and from custom front-end applications using Scalar’s built-in API.
