Linking Objects and their Stories: An API For Exploring Cultural Heritage Using Formal Concept Analysis

In this paper, the authors describe a distributed systems and Web Services Architecture that supports a content management and collaborative tagging system for a Web-based cultural heritage site. The site uses Formal Concept Analysis to infer semantic associations between objects and drive the navigation of its collection, and they promote an extension of its capability by rendering such functionality via Web Services. The Web Services architecture supports a system called the Virtual Museum of the Pacific - a content and knowledge acquisition tool that permits the machine synthesis of formal concepts and provides a Rich Internet Application in which to display and navigate them.
