The 3D reconstruction of the lost cultural heritage is a well-known and practice-oriented visualization method. Although the 3D models are based on different source evaluations and interpretations the documentation of the resulting spatial and visual hypothesis is still not provided. From the scholar point of view the method is of low value.
The presentation reveals the general concept for the design of a documentation standard in the light of the Semantic Web technologies and Linked Data requirements.
The focus lies on the top level classes, derived from the long-term experience with digital sourced-based 3D reconstruction in the academic field, and the presentation of the core entities and properties for mapping the research process referenced to the CIDOC CRM ISO 21127:2006.
The aim is to reveal the triples of an application ontology behind the front-end entry mask of a customized Virtual Research Environment. The visual presentation of the data model with the triples will provide an understanding for the further discussion on common core documentation standards.
