Implications of Linked Data for GEOSS

This page will discuss the possible ways in which the concept of linked data can be used for data, metadata, semantics etc. throughout GEOSS. This would potentially be a major shift for GEOSS, since linked data is very semantically driven. However, the thought could be that the GCI components be modified over time to deal with linked data while there is an education and outreach effort to get data providers to convert to linked data usage. The long term goal is that more and more linked data will be used, resulting in greater benefit to GEOSS users and providers.

The initial effort, coming from the SIF, is to identify, analyze, and recommend some best practices and guidelines for using linked data. The SIF will also study and recommend how GCI components can be modified to exploit linked data if it is available. This effort is not meant to disrupt any existing operations.

Identifed Best Practices and Guidelines for Linked Data

  1. W3C Best Practices for Publishing Linked Data (W3C Working Group Note 09 January 2014)
  2. Guides and Tutorials
  3. Agenda and Slides from the LOD2014 Event (organized by W3C Italy)
  4. TBD
