2.1.3. Data enrichment - integration of global standard data

WissKI offers various options for additionally enriching the object data with information from external resources that provide a standardized vocabulary (authority file).

Benefit/function of norm data:

  • Increase of data purity e.g. by avoiding data duplication.
  • Increase data quality through the use of recognised and curated data 
  • Time savings during the acquisition, since standard data is already enriched with certain metadata (e.g. in the case of locations, coordinates may already have been acquired, which can be loaded into WissKI via interfaces).
  • Additional data (see previous point)

The following two examples illustrate how such standards data can be integrated in WissKI at the data entry level.
