Topic Maps and RDF

Topic Maps and RDF seem to my inexpert view to be
technologies providing alternative, maybe
overlapping paths to the "semantic web". 

Is RDF a candidate for representing Topic Map
type assertions about resources? 

Could someone across this area explain how Topic
Maps and RDF fit together, if at all?
