Assessing the Quality of Geospatial Linked Data – Experiences from Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi)

Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi) is Ireland’s national mapping agency that is responsible for the digitisation of the island’s infrastructure in terms of mapping. Generating data from various sensors (e.g. spatial sensors), OSi build its knowledge in the Prime2 framework, a subset of which is trans-formed into geo-Linked Data. In this paper we discuss how the quality of the generated sematic data fares against datasets in the LOD cloud.

Hailing a Taxi on the Web of Needs

Matchmaking and cooperation are interactions widely available within internet-based platforms. However, to start using such functionality, one must first become a member of the platform. In an effort to push matchmaking and cooperation into the protocol stack of the Web, we demonstrate how an existing taxi service is integrated with a decentralized Web based infrastructure, the Web of Needs (WoN), using a chatbot that can be programmed declaratively to enter into certain types of agreements with users.
