| LinkedGeoData is an effort to add a spatial dimension to the Web of Data / Semantic Web. LinkedGeoData uses the information collected by the OpenStreetMap project and makes it available as an RDF knowledge base according to the Linked Data principles. It interlinks this data with other knowledge bases in the Linking Open Data initiative.
Spatial data is crucial for the Semantic Data Web in order to interlink geographically linked resources. The OpenStreetMap project collects, organizes and publishes geo data the wiki way. Currently the 80.000 Open Street Map users collected data about 22.000.000km ways (roads, highways etc.) on earth. 25.000km are added daily. The Open Street Map database also contains a vast amount of structured information about points-of-interest such as for example shops, amenities, sports venues, businesses, touristic and historic sights.
The goal of this project is to publish OSM geo data, interlink it with other data sources and provide efficient means for browsing and authoring. We aim at working as closely as possible with both the OSM and LOD communities.
The project currently consists of three components:
