Publishing Ordnance Survey Ireland’s geospatial data as Linked Data aims to provide an authoritative service for serving Ireland’s national geospatial data as Linked Data. The service currently provides information on Irish administrative boundaries and the boundaries used for the Irish 2011 and 2016 census. The service is designed to support two use cases: serving boundary data of geographic features at various level of detail and capturing the evolution of administrative boundaries. In this paper, we report on the development of the service and elaborate on some of the informed decisions concerned with URI strategy, publication governance, interlinking approaches, LD access control and measurement of LD quality.
