Importing Subtrees

The page offers a short guide on how to import subtrees into existing thesauri.
Besides importing projects or concept schemes PoolParty offers the possibility to import subtrees of a concept scheme of another project. This opens up numerous possibilities for thesaurus managers to reuse concepts and hierarchies already available in other projects.

How to Import to a Subtree Using RDF Data

In your opened PoolParty project, follow these steps:

  1. Right click the node in the hierarchy tree that should be the root for the subtree you want to import.
  2. Select Import.
  3. In the submenu, select RDF Subtree Import open the RDF Subtree Import dialogue. Select the file you want to import.
  4. In the drop down field Import Format you have the following options:
    • Automatic: PoolParty will determine the actual data format of the file automatically. (Default setting, recommended.)
    • Select one of the import formats provided.
  5. If you are using PoolParty Advanced Server or higher, the Import Assistant will be available: The check box next to Import Assistant is checked by default. Uncheck it, if you don't want to use the assistant.
  6. Click Import to upload the file.
    • Depending on your PoolParty product, you then can run the Import Assistant. After all validation checks have been made the result will be displayed in the Import Assistant tab.

Import Subtree

Concepts already available in the project will not be duplicated, but the correct broader/narrower relationships will be created.

Imported concepts will keep the URI/URN they have in the import file. This prevents you from duplicating concepts published already as linked data and just embeds them in a new context.

Be aware that you cannot make any changes to your project (e.g. SKOS conversions, concept linking), if you are using the Import Assistant (PoolParty Advanced Server or higher licensed) and have not finalized the import by using Store Repaired Data or cancelling it.

If you try to import data into a PoolParty project with and unfinished import a message will be displayed pointing to that fact.
