Using linked data and the semantic web - "powered by INSPIRE" conference presentation

1,367 views

Published on

The central commitment of the UK Government to Open Data and Open Data Standards has continued and this has built towards the desire to not only publish data in ways that are open but to do this with data that isin a way that is both useful and structured in a way that is useful. This has necessarily focused on both enabling innovation and improving public sector efficiencies. The UK Government Linked Data Working Group (UKGovLD) was formed as a commitment in the Open Data white paper, and grew from an UK INSPIRE Linked Data Working Group. UKGovLD is here to advise UK Government on the implementation of Linked Data technologies and associated business practices, highlighting areas of best practice and identifying projects that should be prioritised or amended. All to enable collaboration and the delivery of core projects for the benefit of the UK.
