Geographical Open Data, Semantics and Smart Cities

Spatial Data Infrastructures developed at national and international level correspond to the strategy adopted by governments to support the emergence of a society spatially enabled, i.e. able to benefit from the geospatial data.
At the local level, with reference to the smart city paradigm, a city -or community- answers to the "smart" requirement in its broadest sense, if the ICT solutions adopted to improve the lives of the community contribute, at the same time, to the emergence of spatially enabled citizens and businesses, thus allowing them access and use of geospatial data.
Smart cities’ SDIs play a key role in supporting the creation of a favorable environment for the spatial data sharing. Then, they may help the creation of spatially enabled cities, assigning a central function to their users; an SDI designed and managed adopting a user-centric vision, i.e. focused on the understanding of the needs of individuals and of their point of view, with respect to the geospatial data exploit, increases users' spatial practical ability, hence their spatial enablement.
In this context Semantics and Linked Open Data play a potentially political role in the creation of common, shared and searchable contents: spatially enabled citizens become the basis of a shared and recognized infrastructure.
