At every level of government, electronic data has become increasingly central to those charged with forecasting and allocating funds for infrastructure and community projects. Now more than ever we depend on the availability and accessibility of such government data. And since this data is growing exponentially in size, we are confronted with critical questions of quality, reuseability and portability.
In this event of the New York Semantic Web group we will explore datasets and applications which are build based on the semantic web framework to address these issues. Currently, a small number of teams around the world translate open datasets into RDF to link local data to the so called Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud. Consequently the projects make this linked data as a resource for the development of new applications and demos that consume linked open government data.
Data.gov is the primary source for much of the data that powers these applications to help smart people make better decisions in public and private organizations. This data pool is enriched with a number of publicly available datasets from industry, demographics and data from other countries and non-governmental organizations which will allow planners to make use of an unprecedented amount of reusable structured data for the decision making process.
If you would like to contribute to this session with your own story about publishing government data on the web with Semantic Web technologies please let us know.
We would like to thank JPMorgan Chase for hosting the New York Semantic Web group. And for supporting the local efforts of Lotico, your global semantic social network.
