DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES
MAKING CONNECTIONS WORK
OPEN SOURCE | OPEN STANDARDS | OPEN DATA
Location is a primary means by which things are related, in that nearer things tend to be more related to each other than further things. We provide our geospatial expertise to help you pick up on these relations.
Aggregating information from multiple sources can be a real pain. Linked Data, a set of open standards, simplifies the compiling of information.
It does this by recording the links between things, allowing concepts to be explicitly referenced, and by applying "inference" to determine when they are implicitly referring to the same concepts.
Before you can use data, you need to know that it is available and that it is of sufficient quality for your use. This is what catalogues help you with. Catalogues also help Linked Open Data, because they help different parties refer to the same things in the same way.
