Abstract: In this paper, we provide a survey on the models and query languages for temporally annotated RDF. In most of the works, a temporally annotated RDF ontology is essentially a set of RDF triples associated with temporal constraints, where, in the simplest case, a temporal constraint is a validity temporal interval. However, a temporally annotated RDF ontology may also be a set of triples connecting resources with a specific lifespan, where each of these triples is also associated with a validity temporal interval. Further, a temporal RDF ontology may be a set of triples connecting resources as they stand at specific time points. Several query languages for temporally annotated RDF have been proposed, where most of which extend SPARQL or translate to SPARQL. Some of the works provide experimental results while the rest are purely theoretical.
