Linked Data

In order to have Linked Data, Semantic Web technologies such as OWL and RDF can be used to link ISO 20022 messages to their repository concepts.

We model a message instance as a graph rooted on a blank node whose type is specified explicitly by reference to its Message Definition. Named predicates to other blank nodes correspond to Message Elements and Building Blocks, whose types can be inferred or explicitly specified.

The ISO 20022 architecture of model components is described abstractly in the standard, and can be realised using XML or RDF based languages.

The M3 meta-meta-model can be described using ecore or owl. The M2 meta-model and M1 model is described as in the standard using the related technologies.

This example shows how a specific enumeration fits into the model layers.

It is possible to map from the XML stack to the RDF stack.
