Free Webinar: Linked Data for the Environmental Sector – Use Cases and Opportunities

Organizations working in the environmental sector most often act as intermediates between politics, economy and citizens. They are growing out of their role as plain content providers. To service the demands of their stakeholders they have to act also as data and tool providers for their respective communities.

Together with a basic overview of the possibilities of linked open data you get an appealing picture of the new opportunities which are provided by these principles and technologies, also for your organisation!

Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN)

GBPN_logo_rgb_72GBPN established the “Policy comparative tool on building stock data” together with a domain specific thesaurus used for a domain specific news aggregator.

Renewable Energy and Efficiency Partnership (REEEP)

logo_reeepAs one of the pioneers in the sector, REEEP has an extensive focus on the use of linked data for renewable energy and energy efficiency, facilitating that in various services, like an automatic annotation service, aggregated country data presented as fact sheets, a domain specific search engine, etc.

Austrian Geological Survey (GBA)

gbaThe main driving factor for institutions like the GBA to invest in thesaurus and taxonomy projects, is the increasing need for a uniform description of their data. The idea is that this enhances value and re-usability of their products for their stakeholders. Especially in the geo-spatial sector the INSPIRE directive of the European Parliament and Council gave a push in that direction. As a public authority, the GBA was legally called to implement the directive for its domain.
