Welcome to Schema Crosswalks

Visualizations of Schema Crosswalks

About this page

This page was created in support of the outputs from the Research Data Alliance Research Metadata Schemas Working Group. Specifically, a crosswalk of schema.org properties and corresponding metadata terms. Monash student Penelope Hagan collated all crosswalks collected from a survey, instrumented by the RDA Research Metadata Schemas WG. The tables below represent the crosswalk when it was ingested into the site in early January 2020 and is not a live read of the original table. The page is intended as a prototype service for the research data management community in support of managers who are investigating options for including schema.org markup into existing well formed metadata.

Schema Filter Table

This filter allows you to choose a metadata standard from the drop down menu and see all crosswalked terms and schema.org properties. Because the schema.org properties draw from different classes, the parent class of the schema.org property is also provided.

Sankey Diagram

This filter sankey diagram allows you to choose a schema.org property and see which crosswalked term is connected to which metadata standard. From left to right the labels go schema.org properties, crosswalked terms, then metadata standards.
