Chaudron, chawdron , cauldron and DBpedia
Before getting into the technical details of, did you know the term Chaudron derives from Old French and denotes a large metal cooking pot? The word was used as an alternative form of chawdron which means entrails. Entrails and cauldron – a combo that seems quite fitting with Halloween coming along.
And now for something completely different
To begin with, Chaudron is a dataset of more than two million triples. It complements DBpedia with physical measures. The triples are automatically extracted from Wikipedia infoboxes using a pattern-matching and a formal grammar approaches. This dataset adds triples to the existing DBpedia resources. Additionally, it includes measures on various resources such as chemical elements, railway, people places, aircrafts, dams and many other types of resources.
Chaudron was published on wiki.dbpedia.org and is one of many other projects and applications featuring DBpedia.
Happy reading & happy Halloween!
