The resources of a Knowledge Graph Customization project are lists of elements and information to be added to the baseline KG. They can be syncons, relations between syncons and syncons' user data.
Lists can be:
CSV list type lends itself to being represented in CSV format, and in fact they can be imported and exported as text files with that formatting.
They are used to provide definitions of any type of syncon, definitions of relations between syncons and user data for syncons.
TXT list type lends itself to being represented by plain text files and are only used to provide data for named entities
In CSV list types, the definition of a syncon contains a lot of accessory information (frequency, weight, domains, etc.), while in TXT list types, only the lemmas for each syncon are listed. Some example files in
.csv format are available for download and immediate use.
Unless otherwise specified, the procedures described below are applied in the Resources tab of the project dashboard.
Create a new list
To create a new list:
- Select Create list on the top of the Resources panel: the creation wizard will start.
- In the Create new list dialog, set the list name, choose the list type and select Next.
If you choose Syncon list (CSV type), select the type of definition among:
- Syncons by selecting Create syncon
- Relations by selecting Create relation
- User data by selecting Create user data
then select Next. The dialogs that will appear are described in the pages referenced above.
If you choose Entity list (TXT type), the Add entities dialog appears.
- Select the link type in the Current chain drop-down menu.
Enter the item that is strictly dependent to the previous step. For example, if you selected a supernomen/subnomen link, enter the supernomenomen, or if you selected an omninomen/parsnomen link, enter the omninomen.
- Deselect Select from Knowledge Graph if you want to manually enter an ID.
- If Select from Knowledge Graph is selected, a list of possible matching syncons is displayed as you type.
A list of suggestions will appear in the EDITOR HELPER panel.
Type an optional definition under Definition.
- Put the cursor inside Enter lemmas and type one or more lemmas. Lemmas can contain spaces. Use the pipe character (
|) to separate multiple lemmas.
- Select Add new entity to add another entity without exiting the dialog.
After you define at least one item, the wizard ends and the new list is displayed in the Resources panel.
Import a list
To import a list from a file:
- Select Import list at the top of the Resources panel. The Import new list wizard starts.
- Set the list name and choose the list type, then select Next.
- Select Browse files to open the file, multiple selection is not allowed. If you want to replace the file, select Replace file and open a different file.
- Select Next.
If you selected Entity list during step 2, the Import entities dialog will appear:
- Select the link type in the Current chain drop-down menu and the separator character under Separator.
- Enter the item that is strictly dependent to the previous step. For example, if you selected a supernomen/subnomen link, enter the supernomenomen, or if you selected an omninomen/parsnomen link, enter the omninomen.
Select Enter manually to directly type the item syncon ID.
- Type an optional definition under Definition and select Import.
A list of suggestions to choose from is displayed in the Editor helper panel.
