Does anyone know two things:?

How are rel@ted categories dealt with as far as data design goes.


I have used a couple of tools that transform the rdf dump into data tables/txt files...but not only are related categories not dealt with but it leaves it very unclear as to what data columns are really all there to work with.

Before I get busy and to get this off my mind...who knows what columns are in the rdf dump to work with?

Thank you in advance,

There are two files for the RDF.

One of them defines the structure. In there should be noted the relcat and @link information.

The other file just lists the URLs of the sites and which category they are in.

The following files in the ODP RDF download directory contain a small subset of categories and listings so you can look at the data structure without handling gigabytes of data:

content.example.txt (for the site listings)
structure.example.txt (for the category structure, @links, related links, etc.)

(the TOS for this forum seem to preclude giving the URLs for these files but you can just google for them).
