This guide will walk through the use of the Convert CSV to RDF tool, a semi-automated method of converting comma separated or tab separated text files into RDF that can be displayed in VIVO. These files should include one row of data per record (e.g., a person or publication) and represent the fields or properties associated with each record in separate columns within the row, much as the values appear in a spreadsheet. The most common pattern of loading CSV files involves one CSV file per type of data to be loaded. Note, the current ingest tools involve working through a number of steps from original source data files to the appearance of new data in VIVO. The process requires some understanding of semantic web data modeling and some training.
